Gears of War 4 – December update detailed, releasing on December 6th

The Coalition has detailed the December update for Gears of War 4 that is currently planned for release on December 6th. This update will introduce two new maps, will add Vertical Split-Screen support to the PC version, and will bring improvements to visual feedback for damage dealt with the Gnasher, as well as to footstep audio balance, audio/video settings.

The new maps that will be added to Gears of War 4 are Speyer and Glory.

Here is what The Coalition had this to say about these new maps:

“Both maps will be added to public playlists starting December 13. As we say hello to Glory and Speyer, we say goodbye (for now) to Gridlock and Relic. As a reminder, all maps in Gears of War 4 are added to playlists for free, with maps rotating in and out of public playlists. For non-Season Pass holders that want to keep playing maps no longer in rotation, individual maps can be purchased in the Gears of War store.”

And here are the key requested improvements that will be featured in this upcoming update:

  • A Daily Rewards system
  • Improved visual feedback for damage dealt with the Gnasher
  • Vertical Split-Screen for Windows 10 players
  • Improvements to footstep audio balance, audio/video settings
  • A whole lot more
