The time has come to say goodbye to new Customization Content and Gear Packs in Gears 4 as the team shifts their full focus into making Gears 5 the best game possible.
The end of this road marks the most content released for any Gears game in the series history, with 269 characters and 2,384 Weapon Skins added over the past two and a half years. We’ve introduced new favorites (Sweater Imago!), fulfilled 10 year old fan requests (Palace Guard!) and learnt a lot on the way (maybe no more Color Blast..). We hope you’ve enjoyed the ride.
That said, we know some of your favorites (and ours) didn’t make the cut before the end. We want you to know that, even though they didn’t get the chance to appear in Gears 4, we hear your feedback loud and clear on which characters you’d like to see return in the future.
Gears 4 To Gears 5
The Gilded RAAM Challenge also marks the first of several earnable characters and weapon skins that will be available in Gears 4 and follow you into Gears 5.
Everything you own in your Gears of War 4 collection today will be available for use in Gears of War 4 forever, but will not transfer to Gears 5. In Gears 5, our focus is to deliver as much new and original content as possible from the word go. We’ve got a lot of exciting things planned and can’t wait for you to see it.
In the near future, almost every Character and Weapon Skin set from Gear Packs has been added to Series 3! That means every Character variant and weapon skin set will be discoverable in standard Gear Packs and craftable with Scrap once the Update goes live.
Exceptions to the Series 3 craftable list:
- All Esports Content, including Supporter Packs (Black Steel), Team Packs and the MLG skin
- Community & Esports stream viewership rewards skin sets
- All Play & Earn / Challenge Characters, including Griffin and Classic Golden Gear
- Rank Tier Weapon Skins
- The Run the Jewels Airdrop Pack
- Blood Moon Imago
- Vintage Kait
- Wings Weapon Skins
- Flaming Weapon Skins
- Midnight Omen Weapon Skins
- Heartbeat Weapon Skins
- 10th Anniversary Weapon Skins
- Holiday Event Reward Weapon Skins
- TCA Recruit and Commendation Lancers
Credits will still continue to be useful for picking up Core Gear Packs, which now have a chance to contain almost any content in the game.
You can also destroy any duplicate Cards you get for Scrap, which you can then use to directly Craft the content you want (the web Card Companion has an amazing Scrap All Duplicates feature).
