Title: Gears of War 4 July Update
Post by: MrSerrano1105 on July 05, 2017, 01:30:14 PM

A new month means a New Update and The Coalition is bringing you The July Update. The Update will be available later on today (June 5th). As usual, you’ll see two maps for the month including some added Windflare surprises there’s a whole bunch of events and characters to collect. (

Check out the trailer above for the first footage of Raven Down and Reclaimed Windflare in action, then read on all the info!


This month brings back the classic action of Raven Down with the new challenge of fighting it out in a windflare with Reclaimed Windflare!

The fast and furious action of Gears of War 1’s Raven Down is crash landing into Gears of War 4! Set on a tight intersection with a crashed King Raven in the middle, combat on this map is up close and personal – frags can help you to get an edge in combat, but this map is all about your core Gears combat skills.


The peaceful farm setting of Reclaimed is about to be ravaged by a Windflare! Previously only available in the campaign experience, Windflares are incredibly powerful storms that culminate in the fearsome stormwall with lightning bolts that can fry you in seconds.

As you play in Versus and Horde, the Windflare will periodically roll into the map, challenging you to battle your enemies and the elements. You’ll need to master movement in the strong winds and judge your aim with projectile weapons well in the wind. As the stormwall hits, prepare to dodge lightning bolts that target players – look for the telltale sizzle to know when to move!




Before the emergence of the Locust Horde, Cole was a hugely famous Thrashball star – long before he was a star in the COG battling the Locust (and now the Swarm). This month, you can relive Cole’s glory days with the release of Superstar Cole in an upcoming Gear Pack!


Keeping in the off-duty theme, this month’s Craftable Character will be Civilian Anya – find her early in our Gear Packs before her release later this month.

Continuing this month, there’s a bunch of new events for Gears fans to sink their chainsaw teeth into:

• Raven Down 24/7: To celebrate the release of the ever popular Raven Down, we’ll be running Raven Down 24/7 across multiple game modes later this month!

• More for Horde Players: We recently released a new variant of Horde called ‘Anything Goes’, which pits you against 50 waves of randomized enemies. We’ll have another new Horde event for fans to take on later this month.

Stay tuned for more news, including the first information on Ranked Season 2, coming throughout July.


• Players shot at point-blank range in cover will no longer receive reduced damage
• Players can no longer survive under the avalanche on Avalanche
• Players can no longer capture the rings in KOTH on Avalanche from below the balconies
• Fixed an exploit allowing players to keep weapons after a change in Arms Race

• Horde: The Sniper’s ‘Called Shot’ mark ability now works when using a turret
