gears of war 4

On December 6th, the second major update to Gears of War 4 is arriving.

This update will add extra value for Season Pass holders and includes two brand new maps.

Following the release of fan-favorite maps Checkout and Drydock last month, two brand new battlegrounds will arrive with the December Update. Take a look below.


Description: Evacuated long ago, this lonely district of Speyer is a still image of pre-Locust War life. The battle for the sanctuary is a close quarters affair, but teams looking to control the sprawling academy will need to do so together. Speyer’s opulent interiors and quaint plazas are best suited to longer range engagements.

Description: A monument of military might, this COG battery was used only against the most strategic targets to maintain its secrecy. The defensibility of this fortress can be used to your advantage if captured, which includes a powerful mounted turret that can suppress the courtyard below.

Both maps will be added to public playlists starting December 13.Along with two new maps, several improvements and some new features have been added to the game.

  • A Daily Rewards system
  • Improved visual feedback for damage dealt with the Gnasher
  • Vertical Split-Screen for Windows 10 players
  • Improvements to footstep audio balance, audio/video settings
  • A whole lot more!

If you have not picked up the game yet, it’s 33% off in the store from December 1 to December 28!
