January 24, 2019 at 4:49pm

Gears of War 4 is continuing to get a series of interesting activities which will help lead fans towards the release of Gears 5. The next batch of events and challenges for the game have been revealed, covering early 2019. These special moments have been detailed until the first part of March, I'd expect more to follow throughout the year.

It should be noted that special XP events, gear packs and other special activities will be regularly returning during this period as well. A final note before diving into what to expect, is that a new Ranked 2v2 Gnasher map, Foundation Mid will be entering rotation in Ranked Season 6 and is now available for private/custom matches.
