The special Halloween weekend events in hot games just keep on coming, like a good slasher film villain. Epic has raised expectations with a whopping 31 times experience point multiplier in Gears of War 2 from today, October 29, to November 2. So, if you haven't earned all those level up achievements, now is definitely a good time. It's a nice treat from CliffyB and the rest of the Epic crew, but there's a trick, too: Horde mode is a special lancer only mode throughout this event. Yup, that means chainsaw duels all over the place, and you won't be able to interrupt, either, so plenty of gore will be flowing. Sounds like a lot of fun, and with XP earned so easily, we'll temporarily stop lamenting the fact that Gears of War 3 won't be here until next fall.
