Gears of War 4 kicks of “Gearsmas”

Holiday themed weapons and characters are coming to Gears of War 4 starting today.

Following in the footsteps of games like Overwatch, Gears of War 4 is kicking off the holiday season with Gearsmas.

Gearsmas packs contain three cards and will cost 400 in-game credits. For the impatient, packs can also be bought for $1. Additionally, developer The Coalition will have log in bonuses today for a Gearsmas emblem and anyone who logs in between between Dec. 24-26, 2016 will unlock the Ice Boomshot.

Gearsmas features 28 collectible cards that are limited to this holiday season. Here’s all the possibilities in the packs:

  • 3 ‘Ugly Gearsmas Armor’ Characters – JD, Kait and Swarm Drone
  • 4x Gingerbread Weapon Skins
  • 4x Festive Tree Weapon Skins
  • 4x Snowman Weapon Skins
  • 4x JD Wrapping Paper Weapon Skins
  • 4x Kait Wrapping Paper Weapon Skins
  • 4x Swarm Wrapping Paper Weapon Skins
  • 1 Commemorative Gearsmas Emblem

A new mode will also be coming to the game just in time for Gearsmas: Snowball Fight. In this new mode, all characters will spawn with “Snowshot” Boomshot variant that fires snowballs instead of rockets. The weapon also leaves behind snow each time it’s fired, and hit enemies will explode into a bloody snowy mess. Those on PC will be happy to hear Crossplay Versus will be making a triumphant return during Gearsmas as well. According to Coalition, both holiday modes will feature 1.5x XP throughout the festivities.

Gears fans can enjoy Gearsmas fun from now until Dec. 28, 2016.
