Gears of War 4 builds on the popularity of its predecessors and brilliantly succeeds at capturing the very essence of the franchise. Developers wanted to make sure that some of the most popular features will return in the most recent installment. The good news is that even those that were missing on launch day will be brought back into the spotlight in late October.
One decade after the first game in the franchise was released, Gears of War will be pleasantly surprised to discover that the Fuel Depot map will return. This was for many years one of the most popular maps in Gears of War and Gears of War 2 and its arrival is much-anticipated. The good news is that this could be just the first step and Gears of War 4 fans will be able to play other classic map such as Lift Apex.
More Surprises for the Halloween Event
Gears of War 4 players in general and those who own a season pass in particular should expect plenty of other pleasant surprises. The latter will be able to play on these maps as soon as October 30 and will receive twice as much experience points.
