Gears of War 2: 12 days of Gearsmas event!

I want this ornament.

Horde mode is a blast, nobody can argue with that.  Love or hate Gears of War, horde mode is nothing short of genius.   Epic Games continues to award its fans with special events that alter the game-play and make old adventures feel new.  This holiday season let us celebrate with the merry sounds of grunting and evisceration, let us celebrate the 12 days of Gearsmas.

12x to 23x XP
December 22th to January 3rd

“On the first day of Gearsmas Epic gave to me, a concussion from a smoke grenade.” Bringing the concuss back for day – Dec 22

2 Flaming Bloodmounts (2 Bloodmounts with Flamethrowers every wave) – Dec 23

I for one still love a good round of horde mode.  Not to mention there are still a whole score of achievements I have yet to get.  Anyone else planning on participating in this event?


  1. For the record… Played through day 5 and did about 30 waves for fun. Horde mode is still insane fun after all these years!
