Gears fans, it’s time to show your loyalty and become a Fan of Gears of War’s official Facebook page. Why do you ask? Well let me tell you. If you become a Fan of Gears on Facebook, it will help increase the XP multiplier for the Labor Day Weekend. For every 1000 fans on Facebook, it will increase the XP multiplier by 1. This comes straight from Rod Fergusson (Executive Producer for the Gears of War franchise) on Twitter. If you don’t already follow Rod, you should. His Twitter account is @GearsViking.
Rod did another Gears XP publicity stunt recently on Twitter. If you remember (or even if you don’t), for every 1000 followers of his @GearsViking account, he upped the multiplier by 1. Epic eventually capped it out at 20 times XP. The question this time is will 20 be the cap or will we see it go even higher?
The last time this happened, Horde mode was riddled with the Boomer family. Epic has also given us other fun surprises in the past during these XP events. We’ve seen waves of Tickers and even a mess of Sires during wave 10. Man, that was Chainsawtastic! What sort of goodies does Epic have up their sleeves for this event weekend? Only time will tell.
See you on the battlefield! Gears, Dismissed!!
