To celebrate the ninth anniversary of the original Gears of War, we’ll be launching Ultimate Edition Double XP in all playlists from November 6th at 12pm PDT until Tuesday 11th November at 12pm PDT.
We know many of our fans loved to play high rounds to win Execution matches with fast self-revives on the original Gears of War. This weekend only, Warzone will be replaced with the Classic: Execution special event playlist, bringing with it with 5 second self-revives, and a first to 10 rounds win requirement.
We are also excited to share that we're working on updating our Playlist Map Rotations in the future, which we know has been a hotly requested feature in the community. We’ll now be tailoring the map rotation to offer fan favorite maps more often, and change the general overall order to keep things varied.
Finally, our bi-weekly release of Special Events continues on November 20th 2015 when Brothers to the End makes its debut on Gears of War: Ultimate Edition.
