Double XP Comes to Gears of War 3

By Rebecca Smith, 4 years ago
Easter is fast approaching, so aside from stocking up on enough chocolate to get you through the rest of the year, many games are having special weekend events. Gears of War 3 is not an exception. This weekend sees double XP being applied to all game modes. The event starts today and finishes on April 9th.

First there is a Classic horde mode. There are few details on what this entails unfortunately. Meanwhile, beast mode will include custom locust for players to use. The targets? Easter bunnies.

In the versus multiplayer modes, last weekend's special Execution playlist, Raven Down 24/7, has now become a Get Gnashty playlist. Players will still need to win ten rounds to finish the game, but the weapon load-out no longer includes the Golden Snub pistol. Gnashers will still be the main weapon of the mode, unsurprisingly. All maps will be cycled too.

In an additional bit of information, the Guardian playlist will not be restricted to Force of Nature maps any more. From today, all maps will become active on that playlist.

Thanks to the members of the community who sent this one in!
