Gears of War 3 Weekend Details

By Michelle Balsan, 4 years ago
This week's Gears of War 3 weekend brings us two separate events (both running all weekend, of course!), which will appeal to the versus and Horde mode players out there.

On the versus side, this week sees the return of the Brothers to the End playlist - a 2v2 Team Deathmatch game mode.

For those Horde-ers amongst you, this week brings the Horde Dance-a-Thon, which allows you to gain extra XP and bonus cash the longer you can stay alive. Once you fail a wave and your streak is over, your XP and cash bonus will reset to their original level. You don't need to restart Horde to get the benefit of the bonuses, however - once you continue, the bonuses will start to rack up again.

Whose going to be using that extra XP to bring themselves closer to prestiging ahead of Fenix Rising's release this Tuesday?

The Gears of War 3 Weekend is already under way and will run through Sunday. Like all Gears 3 weekend events, participation counts toward the Socialite achievement.
