Gears of War 2 'Gears of Fitness' XP Event

By Ashley Woodcock, 7 years ago
Epic Games have announced that there will be a 22x XP event for Gears of War 2, which is spread across all gametypes, including Horde.

With the confirmation of both a release date, and the mid-April launch of the beta for Gears of War 3, Epic Games decided it was time to celebrate during the upcoming Games Developers Conference week with some extra XP!

Epic Games' own, Rod Fergusson, announced via his twitter that the XP multiplier would be the same as the amount of weight he lost (to look sleek and sexy) for GDC. After managing to lose a whopping 20 pounds, starting from 12th January and finishing on 21st February, Rod announced via Epic Games' Forum that the XP during GDC week would be timed by 22.

Rod also had some kind words to say for his supporters:

Hey all,

Just popping in to say "Thanks for all the support!". I made this public so that the community would motivate me and you have certainly done that. Everytime I look at a donut I think how pissed off you would be if it were only a 3x XP event smile
Good job Rod on losing all those pounds! This could also mean that anyone who is still yet to knock out the Veteran Gear Achievement, could lose a lot of hours needed towards unlocking this grind of an achievement.

The XP event will run from 9.00am EST, Monday February 28th, through to 9.00am, Monday March 7th.
