Is that the reason? Makes no sense. They've released loads more maps for Gears 2 & 3 so maybe they can refund all the costs for those and give us compensation for being so overwhelmed on having to cope with so many maps! I think Gears 2 had 29 and this would have taken the grand total on Gears 4 to ....12.

No more missing point blank Gnasher shots, thanks to Gears of War 4's March update




8 hours ago

The Coalition are by no means done supporting Gears of War 4, as they have just announced all the details on their upcoming March update. This...
Read more



Quote:
DLC for everyone.






Gears of War 4 players can look forward to a "major update" for the game that will bring new maps, add new features, tweak items, and more.

The March update will bring one new map, Diner, and one classic map, Old Town, as well as the new Ranked Lobby system, and improvements to Gnasher. That's not all though before this map even makes its release there will be a bit of content distributed to Gears of War 4 players throughout the month (Gear Packs!).
The update is now available to Season Pass Holders, in the Developer Playlist, complete with Double XP and 20% Bonus Credits. The maps will be added to the standard map rotation for all on March 14th.


Ranked Lobbies:
When matchmaking for any Core or Competitive playlist, you'll be placed in a pre-game lobby that features map voting, bounty selection, and customization options. If a player quits prior to the match beginning, the lobby will continue searching for a player instead of heading into the game.
Once the match is over, you’ll be automatically returned into the Lobby search for your playlist without having to manually restart.
Two New Maps:
Diner
A lone neon-lit Diner in a dusty wasteland is the latest battleground in Gears 4! Developed over the course of the last 18 months, this map represents one of the most refined tactical experiences yet seen in a map from The Coalition.

Combat inside the Diner is intense and claustrophobic as you fight for control of the kitchen and Sniper Spawn. Expect smaller engagements that demand close-quarters skills to come out on top.

The parking lot is a more open affair where the focus shifts to ranged combat. Work as a team and win the outside and open up new flanks to catch out your opponents in the Diner!

Old Town
Old Town is back! One of the standout maps from Gears of War 3, this map has been re-imagined in a snowy UIR Costal town, complete with a looming UIR Base lurking in the background.

Old Town features the same layout fans know and love, with its clearly defined three lanes and asymmetrical elevation change from low to high. Fight over the Torque and Sniper under the Belltower, stall to stall in the market, or hunkered down in the tight, long sight-lined alleyway.

With new weapon swaps, the dynamics of the critical alleyway fight have evolved. One round will force the fight into close range with the addition of the Overkill shotgun, while the other will encourage ranged combat thanks to the new Markza pickups. Win the fight to claim the Boomshot or – new to Gears of War 4 – Dropshot that spawns here.

Diner is quite a fun new map. They redid Old Town as an icy/frosty map which works quite well.

When listening to your fans is the wrong move.

Cliff Bleszinski, or "Cliffy B" as he is cordially known, made his name on the Gears of War franchise which began 11 years ago back in 2006. As with most creatives, Bleszinski rode the wave as far as he could before needing to move on to something else, but he apparently has kept an eye on his old stomping grounds. In speaking with Gamespot, Cliffy B compared Gears of War 4 to Star Wars: The Force Awakens in the sense that all it ended up being was more of the same.
He said:
"What [Gears of War developer The Coalition boss Rod Fergusson] did was give the people what they want. He did the J.J. Abrams Episode VII. I've watched Episode VII five times. I still get misty-eyed and get all excited but when I think objectively about it, I'm like, 'There wasn't a lot of risk there.' So I'm hoping they take a little bit more risk in the future."
This is not to say that Gears of War 4 is a bad game by any means, but it's more a case of a fear of change. Game development has become a somewhat counter-intuitive culture of constantly looking to fans for approval. And while it has its benefits (particularly in the image department), it can also rob the creative professionals who make these games from being...well...creative.
Gears of War 4 predominantly scored well from critics, and currently, sits at an average Metascore of 84. However, it's a far cry from the system sellers that the first three entries of the series were (which Bleszinski was a lead developer on).
The future of the Gears of War franchise remains to be seen, but you'd have to think there's going to be at least one more during the Xbox One's life cycle.

[/COLOR]Gears of War 4’s first ranked season begins soonMarch 29, 2017

The Coalition is introducing ranked seasons to Gears of War 4 in the near future.

The Coalition is introducing ranked seasons to Gears of War 4 in the near future.

| 03/29/2017 07:25 AM PT




The first ever ranked season in Gears of War 4 is “on the way,” according to developer The Coalition.
“A Season is a period of time (usually a few months) where you can earn your rank through placement matches, and then go up (or down) based on performance,” the developer explains. “At the end of a Season, your rank will be reset and you’ll have to earn your Skill Rating through another set of placement matches and improving your skill over time. We’re still determining the optimal length for each Season – we’ll share more close to the launch of Season 1.”
Seasons will also bring new rewards for players to earn, including parts of new weapon skin sets themed on the various Ranks in the game–Bronze, Silver, Gold, Onyx, and Diamond.
The release of seasons will be accompanied by a new skill-based algorithm that will further improve the quality of the game’s Ranking System. The update will improve the accuracy of Tier Placements and take Skill over time into account.
A launch date and details on the available rewards will be shared “in the coming weeks.”

Gears 4 didn't push the envelope like the earlier games did, particularly the first's campaign and the 2nd's Horde mode. On the safe side like Cliff said but still a solid game.

04/14/2017 07:08 AM PT | Updated 04/14/2017 08:16 AM PT





Gears of War 4 players can now purchase the RAAM Emergence Pack for a chance to obtain General RAAM as a playable character for their collections.
The RAAM Emergence Pack is available now for 2000 Credits or $4.99 and contains General RAAM, Kantus, and Savage Kantus, as well as the RAAM and Corpser weapon skin sets, and two new emblems. As well as all this, players also have a small chance to unlock Bernie Mataki early. Don’t worry if you miss out though, because the character will be made available via Scrap later this month.
Developer The Coalition also unveiled new Mega Packs, a new monetary Gear Pack option that contain 10 cards instead of the usual five. Mega Packs are available now for $9.99 and contain the following:
  • A guaranteed Character from the Pack Collection (in this case, the RAAM Emergence Collection)
  • A chance of finding up to three Characters from the collection in one Mega Pack
  • Less chance for duplicate weapons or characters compared to opening two individual Gear Packs
  • A bonus RAAM Emergence Weapon Skin card or early access to Bernie Mataki on top of the 10 Cards you find in the Mega Pack
Earlier this week, The Coalition announced that it will be adding cross-play support to Ranked Play in the coming months, allowing Xbox One and Windows 10 players to face off in Core and Competitive playlists.
Gears of War 4 is available now on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.

Gears of War 4’s first ranked season is underway

The Coalition has revealed the rewards up for grabs in Gears of War 4's Ranked Season 1.


| 04/21/2017 09:02 AM PT





The first of Gears of War 4‘s ranked seasons is now underway on Xbox One and PC.
“Seasons are a roughly three-month period of Ranked Play where you will be challenged to go out, secure your first Rank through placement matches, and then rise through the Tiers by consistently winning matches,” developer The Coalition explains. “As of right now, resets have occurred on all tiers. You will need to replay your Placement Matches for your new Tier.
“Running Seasons allows us to offer better Skill Based Matchmaking by refreshing Ranked Matchmaking every three months, and provide a great way to showcase your skills against an increasingly experienced player base.”
Ranked Season 1 is scheduled to end mid-July and will offer three new full Weapon Skin collections as a reward–Gold, Onyx, and Diamond. Each type of Weapon Skin is linked to a specific playlist every Season and the rewards are based on a per playlist basis, but don’t worry, because the weapon skin on offer in each playlist will rotate each season.

“Rewards are based on your highest Rank during the Season, rather than your final placement,” the developer adds. “If you get to Diamond and then have a run of losses that brings you down to Onyx, don’t worry – you’ve secured your Diamond Reward for that playlist. We are also planning to award players the Weapon Skins from Ranks below your placement too!”
The following skins are available during Season 1:
Core
  • Team Deathmatch: Lancer
  • King Of The Hill: Overkill
  • Dodgeball: Dropshot
  • Guardian: Boltok
  • Arms Race: Markza Mk. 1
  • Warzone: Boomshot
Competitive
  • Escalation: Gnasher
  • Execution: Longshot
Earlier this month, The Coalition revealed that it will be activating cross-play in Core and Competitive playlists in the coming months, allowing Xbox One and PC players to play together in ranked.

Security is back.



As Gears of War 4 is getting ready to launch its May content update tomorrow, the developers have opened up about what you can expect. Headlining the offerings are two maps, the first of which, Dawn, is all new. On top of that, The Coalition has brought an updated version of a Gears of War 2 classic map, Security. The developers say they have "worked extensively to bring this map up to modern graphical and gameplay standards," in response to fan demand to bring back some of the series' best multiplayer maps.



For PC players, Gears of War 4 will now support multiple GPU setups so gamers with big rigs can take advantage of some added graphical prowess. Ben Carmine is also making a comeback in Gears of War 4 courtesy of a Zombie Ben Carmine skin in the May gear packs.
Monthly Horde and Versus events will also continue this month with a new Horde variant and the return of Gnashers Only King of the Hill for Versus headline the offerings.
The Gears of War 4 update will go live tomorrow, May 2nd.

It's coming together!






Towards the end of last year, it was revealed that Universal Studios was working on a film based on Gears of War. At the time, there were little details - like whether it would be following the story of the original games or a spin-off based in the same universe.


While we still don't know a majority of the details around the film, we do know one thing! The writer behind Avatar 2, Shane Salerno, is writing the script for the Gears of War film. In addition to that, The Batman's producer, Dylan Clark, has signed on to the project as well.


Shane Salerno's writing credits aren't limited to Avatar 2, it also includes Armageddon, Alien vs. Predator: Requiem, and all of the upcoming Avatar sequels.
With the Gears of War film being assigned a writer, we should see details on the film in the coming months!
