Halloween comes to Gears of War 4!

The dead rise faster this Halloween. 
 
We're excited to share the details of the first special event for Gears of War 4 - Pumpkin Ball! 
 
Pumpkin Ball is a remix of Dodgeball that introduces 1 second respawn times and reduced respawn protection, resulting in a faster paced Dodgeball experience where the dead don't stay dead for long.  
 
This social style playlist features 5 of the darker maps from Gears of War 4: 

  • Fallout
  • Forge
  • Harbor
  • Impact
  • Lift

Pumpkin Heads also make their Gears of War return exclusively in this playlist - now sporting a new mouth inspired by the look of our Juvies. As a special Halloween bonus, we've also turned on Bonus XP rewards in Pumpkin Ball - find this playlist in the ‘Events’ category under the Versus menu now! 

Halloween Elite Pack

In addition to this special playlist, the Halloween Elite Pack arrives on October 27th in the Gears of War 4 store! 
 
This special purchasable pack is a variant on the Elite Gear Pack, with one card in each guaranteed to be Epic or Legendary quality. Legendary Cards from this pack are exclusively from the Day of the Dead Legendary Collection. The Halloween Elite Pack is available until November 1st. 
 
In case you missed it, we recently released a Horde Credit and XP Earn Rate update for Gears of War 4, and covered a number of larger feedback items we're working on here. We'll have more news on further updates coming to Gears of War 4 soon.  
 
Have a great Halloween!
