More chainsaw action is coming with the Gears of War 4 March update. The update includes great new features, new characters to collect, and much more! Check out the overview trailer and all the details below!
Developed over the course of the last 18 months, this map represents one of the most refined tactical experiences yet seen in a map from The Coalition.
Combat inside the Diner is intense and claustrophobic as you fight for control of the kitchen and Sniper Spawn. Expect smaller engagements that demand close-quarters skills to come out on top.
The parking lot is a more open affair where the focus shifts to ranged combat. Work as a team and win the outside and open up new flanks to catch out your opponents in the Diner!
Old Town is back! One of the standout maps from Gears of War 3, this map has been re-imagined in a snowy UIR Costal town, complete with a looming UIR Base lurking in the background.
Old Town features the same layout fans know and love, with its clearly defined three lanes and asymmetrical elevation change from low to high. Fight over the Torque and Sniper under the Belltower, stall to stall in the market, or hunkered down in the tight, long sight-lined alleyway.
With new weapon swaps, the dynamics of the critical alleyway fight have evolved. One round will force the fight into close range with the addition of the Overkill shotgun, while the other will encourage ranged combat thanks to the new Markza pickups. Win the fight to claim the Boomshot or – new to Gears of War 4 – Dropshot that spawns here.
Both of the new maps come with the Season Pass, complete with Double XP and 20% Bonus Credits. The maps will be added later on to the standard map rotation for all gamers on March 14th.
When gamers are in matchmaking they'll be placed into a pre-game lobby complete with map voting, bounty selection, and customization options. If a gamer quits or disconnects prior to the beginning of the match, the countdown will cancel and everyone will go back to searching until the game is full.
The best part has to be that after the match you will automatically be placed into the search lobby until a new game is found. No need to manually restart the search for a new game. These new features will improve ranked gameplay tremendously. The Coalition has also said to keep an eye out for tweaks to the competitve process.
The much needed Gnasher improvement is finally here. Hopefully after months of researching (our complaints worked people) the problem has hopefully been fixed. If you've ever played with the Gnasher, you know what we are talking about.
Microsoft and The Coalition have also stated that more updates will come after the main march update. Stay tuned to Gamefragger.com for all the announcements!
