Gears of War 4 May update adds new maps and more content

02 May 17

The Coalition is set to add more multiplayer maps into Gears of War 4 this May.  This is thanks to a new update that is available for all owners. 

The Coalition posted more on the new update via a blog post on Xbox Wire. Starting on May 2nd, 2017, Gears of War 4 owners have access to two new maps. 

The new maps are called Dawn and Security. Dawn is an all-new map created from the ground up and is set in an outdoor village. It has both closed and open spaces for you to take advantage of. 

Next up is Security which is a map that fans of Gears of War 2 will be very familiar with. This map has been remastered and some little tweaks have been made to it so the gameplay remains balanced and fair. The major change to the level is to how lasers work. 

If you own the Windows 10 version of the game, this new update adds Multi-GPU support . This means you can basically make use of many graphical setups. You can even make the game look better than before. 

The Coalition also promises that more content for Gears of War 4 is on the way. This is good news for anyone that still owns the game!
