Gears of War 4 Double XP Weekend Starts Today

For all of you that are fighting the hordes in Gears of War 4, The Coalition is offering up a new weekend-only Horde playlist and giving out double class XP right now. The new playlist is called Feral Horde. In a recent forum post, developer The Coalition goes into a little more detail as to why Feral Horde is a lot more challenging than regular Horde.

“Feral Horde ratchets up the intensity of each wave, changing the composition of each wave to focus more on constant pressure and unrelenting assault,” the developer said. “Prepare to move, dodge, and scrap your way to victory against new waves filled with hefty amounts of Explosive Trackers, Swarm Grenadiers, DR-1s, Dropshot Scions, and more.”

The Feral Horde playlist will automatically be set to Hardcore difficulty, and fans can only play it on one map, Clocktower. While that sounds a little boring, The Coalition sweetened the deal to encourage people to try Feral Horde. They are offering up three Swarm character skins.

It is easy enough to obtain them, sort of. To get them, you need to first register your Gamertag (that is the east part) and then do the following:

  • Complete 50 Waves in the Feral Horde playlist (unlocks the the Tiger Skin).
  • Complete 100 Waves in the Feral Horde playlist (unlocks the Cheetah Skin).
  • Complete 200 Waves in the Feral Horde playlist (unlocks the Snow Leopard Skin).

The Coalition has also released a Feral Horde Pack, which comes with everything shown in the picture above. Finally, double class XP is available this weekend for not just Feral Horde, but also the Public and Private Horde playlists. The Coalition did not announce when the weekend event wraps up But it is safe to say, some time at the end of this weekend.
