If you’ve got the Gears bug after watching the Crescendo trailer as reported here earlier today, then head over to Gears of War 2 for this weekend’s 20 XP event. Not only will you receive a 20x multiplier on all XP earned, there are also some surprises in Horde in the form of some weapons change ups. And if you’ve already experienced this and were slightly confused, yes that really was a Sire that fired at youwith a lancer before chain-saw duelling you to death!
The XP event runs until 25th July, so if you’ve yet to get the Veteran Gear achievement for reaching level 100 and winning a match on each of the 4 Snowblind Map Pack maps, then make sure you take advantage. It’s rumoured that this achievement will carry over to Gears of War 3 in some form.
