The Gears of War 4 Spring 2018 updates and content has been detailed. This includes a variety of fresh content from new modes, to special events and of course new items to unlock through loot crates. The quickest approaching of these noted items is that there will be a Mardi Gras Weapon Skin Gear Pack available starting February 9, 2018. This pack will include three unique weapon skin sets within the categories of Glitzed, Flashy and Ornate. The pack will cost 400 credits and can also be purchased as a microtransaction. On that exact same day the Wrestler Oscar and Luchador Oscar collection (except Emblems) will become craftable. That means players will be able to unlock the various portions of the Oscar collections by using in-game scrap.
At the head of events is the "Cupid's Torque Bow Tag" which will start on February 12, 2018. This is of course the yearly Valentine's Day event in the game. Get ready for some love with massive hearts and colorful bows. A fresh event this year will be the "Year of the Dog" featuring Horde options and daily rewards. That mode will run from February 16 to March 2. That will be followed by a fresh set of Achievements in early March which will increase the count from 123 Achievements for 2500 Gamerscore currently available.
The events continue with the St Patrick’s Versus on March 9, 2018 which will be a special mode. A special gun skin is also teased for that one. A Horde Event follows on March 16 with no current details on that one. You can also expect an Easter event once more with this floppy bunny ears mode called Bunny Hunt running from March 29 to April 5. The final noted event on the schedule is the Juvie Madness for early April, this has been Horde based in the past. Additional content was teased for after Spring and there will be a fresh set of updates throughout the year to be announced.
