Gearsmas runs from December 18th at 12pm PDT – January 5th at 12pm PDT

January 4, 2016

It’s almost the holidays, and that means only one thing for Gears fans – Gearsmas is here! This year’s Gearmas will run for a full 17 days on Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, giving both new and veteran fans the chance to get their fill of XP boosts and new playlists.

Double XP!
Earn Double XP in all playlists and modes until January 5th. Time to earn your next re-up!

Two New Playlists
For the Gearsmas event, we’re adding two new playlists to battle it out in over the holidays. Additionally, due to the much longer running time of this event, the Warzone playlist will remain active throughout the Gearsmas period!

– BTTE TDM: Play 2v2 on two small maps for intense co-operative skirmishes.
– Shotty Snipes: Gnashers and Snipers only. Aim for the head, or go for the gib.

Map Rotation Improvements
We’ve made further tweaks to our new weighted map rotation system, which should result in the most popular maps for Ultimate Edition appearing more often. We’ve also returned Bullet Marsh, Escalation and Rooftops to all playlists (except Execution), given they now appear less often than other more popular choices.

Thanks for all your incredible support over this year – we can’t wait for you to see what’s in store for 2016 when we lift the curtain on Gears of War 4. Have a safe and happy holidays!
