The newest update for Gears of War 4 is live now for season pass holders, and it includes two new maps with some special, Summer bonuses. Non-pass holders will need to wait until next week, August 8th, to get their hands on them as normal. The new maps are Forge Blitz and Canals, and each has some twists to make sure you continue changing up your style.
Forge Blitz is a revamped take on the old Forge map, and the control room has been switched up a bit.Gone are the secondary entrances to the Control Room as well as the elbow behind the Incinerator, forcing combat into more focused areas with more direct fronts. Both exits from either spawn have also been tightened up to provide less open space and more opportunities to be aggressive.
Canals is designed more for Snipers with more open spaces and clear lines of sight. Of course, the triple bridge is back as well, making for some intense, new scenes with Gears of War 4 freshly introduced weapons. The month of August will also see all credits for your first win of the day increase 500%. Instead of the normal 100 credits, you will now earn 500 credits for your first win each day.
Take a look at the new trailer below.
