Gears of War 4 DLC Pass Is $50, Includes All of This
Here is a rundown of everything the Season Pass comes with.
Microsoft has announced a Gears of War 4 Season Pass for DLC. The $50 package (not an uncommon price for passes for AAA games), includes an assortment of digital content like maps and more.
Announced on Xbox Wire, the Gears of War 4 Season Pass includes:
- VIP Vintage Pack -- Vintage JD character skin, vintage Gnasher and Dropshot weapon skins, vintage JD emblem, and vintage JD bounty that gives you extra XP.
- Permanent DLC map ownership for 24-plus maps -- At least two per month for 12 months for private play on dedicated servers.
- Developer Playlist -- This lets you play upcoming modes, maps, and variants before they are released publicly.
- Six Gear Packs -- These let you unlock character and weapon skins, as well as equipment and abilities, along with bounties that offer extra XP.
As announced previously, Gears of War 4 multiplayer DLC maps will be free, but are offered on a rotating basis. The only way to guarantee that you can play a specific map whenever you want is to buy it, either through the Season Pass or presumably as a standalone offering.
In other Gears of War 4 news, Microsoft has announced a $100 Ultimate Edition, which comes with the game and Season Pass; in addition, everyone who buys this version gets to play four days early. A $250 Collector's Edition featuring an awesome-looking JD Fenix statue has also been announced.
