The Gears of War 4 August Update has been revealed on Xbox Wire and there’s quite a bit of new stuff for Gears fans to enjoy. Don’t have time for many matches and wish you could earn credits a bit faster? There’s a nice bonus this month that should make you happy.
As usual, there are two new maps:
A map included at launch, Forge has been heavily reworked into a new experience for Gears players.
Forge Blitz is a tighter, faster pace evolution of the map Forge that builds upon the spirit of the original to create a map filled with new combat experiences. All of this action takes place in a sand-swept factory damaged over time by a Windflare, underneath a blazing hot desert sun.
One of many classic maps, Canals is making a return.
Snipers have a massive impact on the flow of the fight with long sightlines and plenty of places to hide, but prepared to pull out your Gnasher at a moment’s notice for an intense close quarters fight on the narrow bridges.
New Craftable Character
Introducing Classic Commando Dom!
Summer of Gears
Every day in August, your first win of the day is worth 500 Credits – and increase from the standard 100 Credits. That means an extra 12,400 Credits are up for grabs this August if you win one match every day!
So that’s all folks. A fairly nice update however, definitely a bit more subdued than previous months. That said, I am excited to start working on the credit bonus for this month. Returning to Canals will also be a blast. Have fun!
