Slowly, Treats from the Gears of War Universe Just Pour In Out now, a new Gears of War 4 update for fan veterans. This latest patch, Series 2 Collection, significantly expands multiplayer content. We get over 280 collectible cards, including iconic characters from Gears of War 3. Out of a total thirteen, four make up our “first” band of legacy characters. However, there’s more in this latest patch. Additionally, two fan-favorite maps have been re-imagined. “Blending together the best of Gears 2’s original take and the Gears 3’s re-imagining,” we get the Gears 4 version of Blood Drive. Battle through pillars and along city streets, where open terrain leads to longshot firefights. Then we have the classical Clocktower re-imagined.

Both maps are currently available for Season Pass holders, and everyone on January 17. On top of that, The Coalition wants to give Season Pass holders more for their buck: Today, they announced sixty random cards from Series 2 Characters and Weapon Skins. This new Airdrop comes January 13, in conjunction with Bounty Gear…
