Yesterday, The Coalition teased some new content for its third title update for Gears of War 4, and now we know exactly what’s in it.
First up, two fan-favorite maps have been added to Gears of War 4: Blood Drive and Clocktower. The Gears of War 4 version of Blood Drive takes the center-map pillar fights of the original Gears of War 2 version and mixes it with the improved flow of the refined Gears of War 3 release. While Clocktower reimagines the map as the Bank of Bronn as it’s slowly claimed by the Swarm.
Both maps are available now for season pass holders in the Developer Playlist and will be available for free for non-holders in Public Play from January 17th.
The update also adds 280 new cards to collect with the release of Series 2. Players can now pick up 13 new characters, including Armored Anya, Armored Sam, and Zombie Minh, and over 260 new weapon skins. All Series 2 cards are available in standard Gear Packs and are craftable using Scrap.
Finally, Gears of War 4 Season Pass holders get a little something extra with double XP and a 20 percent credit boost while playing in the Developer Playlist.
