Gears of War 4 Season Pass Content Expanded

Gears of War 4 developer The Coalition has added more card packs to its season pass offering.


Gears of War 4 is less than a month away from release, and season pass buyers are set to get even more than was originally announced. The Coalition studio head Rod Fergusson has announced on Twitter that it has expanded the number of card packs you'll get with the season pass.

The season pass initially had six Gear Packs, but they have now been replaced with a 17-pack Starter Air Drop. The new Air Drop contains five Horde Boosters, five Versus Boosters, five Operations Packs, and two Elite Packs. This comes out to 85 cards, something Fergusson calls a "sampler platter." He added that season pass offers at retailers will "start getting updated soon."

The season pass costs $50. In addition to the Starter Air Drop, it includes the VIP Vintage Pack, which features skins for weapons and a character; permanent DLC map ownership for 24-plus maps; and the Developer Playlist, which gives you access to modes, maps, and variants before public release.

Gears of War 4 releases for Xbox One and PC on October 11. It's part of the Play Anywhere program, so if you buy it digitally on Xbox One, you get a free digital copy of the PC version for free and vice versa.

The Coalition revealed the new Horde 3.0 mode at PAX West. It features a new class system and mechanics for defense building. You can watch our hands-on impressions of Horde 3.0 or check out more about the mode through the links below.
