The Gears of War 4 July update has been revealed, courtesy of the Xbox Wire. Now, it is a much smaller update than last month’s Rise of the Horde however, there’s still some great stuff here. In this month’s update, there are some new maps and characters. Additionally, there’s a new feature previously exclusive to the campaign. The update is live and ready to download right now, so get it downloading and take a look below at everything included.
First up, there are two new maps!
Raven Down returns from previous Gears of War games, this time set at night.
Reclaimed is getting a makeover as Reclaimed Windflare. As that name might imply, the deadly windflares from the campaign are being incorporated into the multiplayer starting with this map.
New Character Skins
This month, you can relive Cole’s glory day self with the release of Superstar Cole in an upcoming Gear Pack!
Keeping in the off-duty theme, this month’s Craftable Character will be Civilian Anya – find her early in our Gear Packs before her release later this month
So there you have it, all the new characters and maps for this month. Personally, I’m pretty excited to see Windflares finally making their appearance in multiplayer. Hopefully we’ll see more map variants incorporating them in the upcoming months.
