One of the greatest things about online gaming is how developers are able to spice up our favourite games with themed events such as Christmas-y attire, eggs and bunnies for Easter and some Halloween treats. Gears of War is one of those games that gets annual events, and The Coalition are continuing the tradition with Gears of War 4.
Starting today until November 1st, hop into a special social lobby called ‘Pumpkin Ball’, which plays just like the Dodgeball game mode. All players will have pumpkin heads on them, and respawn time is down to 1 second between deaths. It doesn’t change the flow of gameplay too much either, and whether it’s Dodgeball or the pumpkin themed variant, you won’t gain any additional credits for taking part unfortunately. You will get a little bonus boost in XP though, so spend some time with it!
Available for a limited time only though is the Halloween Elite Pack, which costs the same 3,500 as a regular Elite Pack, but can offer an item Day of the Dead Legendary Collection.
You can find this playlist in the ‘Events’ category under the Versus menu now. If you have yet to play Gears of War 4, and want to check over our own review, you can find it here.
