Double XP until the New Year with Gears of War Ultimate Edition

When you think of Christmas, your mind immediately turns to devastation, a locust invasion, and ridiculously-thick-necked space marines in massive power armour growling at each other.

Oh, no, wait… that was Black Friday. What we’re talking about here is Gearsmas – the annual celebration of all things Gears of War (well – as long as you are an Ultimate Edition owner, that is.)

From 18 December until 5 January, this year’s Gearsmas gives you the chance to take home double XP and try out a couple of new playlists, as well.

  • BTTE TDM: Play 2v2 on two small maps for intense co-operative skirmishes.
  • Shotty Snipes: Gnashers and Snipers only. Aim for the head, or go for the gib.


Are you still playing Gears? Is the lure of double XP enough to bring you back to the game over Christmas? Or are you just keeping sharp for Gears 4? Why not let us know in the comments?
