Gears of War 2 XP Events Detailed

By Michelle Balsan, 7 years ago
When Epic announced details about some of the unlockables in their upcoming title, Gears of War 3, they also revealed that XP weekends for Gears of War 2 would take place every weekend up until the Gears 3 launch. The reason for this apparent generosity? Epic wants as many people as possible to unlock the Veteran Gear achievement for reaching rank 100 in Gears 2 multiplayer so that everyone can feel the bonus content love.

Epic has finally released the schedule of these XP events, and the multipliers which each weekend will yield:

8-19-2011 9:00 AM EST Through 8-22-2011 9:00 AM EST 5X
8-26-2011 9:00 AM EST Through 8-29-2011 9:00 AM EST 10X
9-2-2011 9:00 AM EST Through 9-5-2011 9:00 AM EST 15X
9-9-2011 9:00 AM EST Through 9-12-2011 9:00 AM EST 20X
9-16-2011 9:00 AM EST Through 9-19-2011 9:00 AM EST 25X
This weekend will also bring you "Tickers by the Boatload" in horde mode. No further details were listed about special events other than the multipliers in the coming weeks, but we'll be sure to bring them to you as they're announced.
