Longer Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Events Planned ‘Later Down the Road’

Special community events for Gears of War: Ultimate Edition might be kept longer in the online multiplayer’s rotation cycle in the near future, according to The Coalition community manager TC Octus.

Twitter user Monsty tweeted at Jack Felling, eSports producer and developer at The Coalition, about the fan-favorite One Shot One Kill (OSOK) being removed from the Ultimate Edition, claiming that the mode is “the only think [sic] keeping me and the other 80% of the community on UE.”

Felling responded by bringing TC Octus into the Twitter exchange, with The Coalition community manager saying that the development team is looking “to do much longer-term special events in the future, but they’re on a rotation format for now.”

“It’s something we plan to do later down the road, but not quite yet,” he added in a follow-up tweet.

OSOK and a quadruple XP bonus were added to the Ultimate Edition earlier this month, as The Coalition said that it wanted to reward the Gears of War community for its participation in the Gears of War 4 beta.

Since the Ultimate Edition’s release on Xbox One in 2015, The Coalition has held numerous events for the title, including Torque Bow Tag, Raven Down 24/7 and different weapon variations of OSOK.

Community events for the Ultimate Edition are often rotated in and out of the title every two to three weeks, TC Octus confirmed in his tweet.

In other news, Microsoft and The Coalition announced earlier this week that the PC version of the Ultimate Edition had finally been released in China.

Meanwhile, The Coalition has revealed the content included in the Gears of War 4 Season Pass and also announced Gears of War 4: Ultimate Edition.

Running on the Unreal Engine 4, Gears of War 4 will launch worldwide on October 11 for Xbox One.
