Gears of War 3 Special 4th July Event Brings Double XP
Written Monday, July 02, 2012 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Epic Games has declared that starting today, there'll be a Gears of War 3 double XP event running from now until... erm, an unspecified date, to commemorate July 4th, or rather Independence Day. Presumably the event will be running through July 4th.
There's 2x XP across Versus, Beast and Horde modes, as well as a special 'Top Wingman' playlist with alpha rules, where you'll be able to select a custom event skin for each weapon. These skins are all Top Gun-themed and are as follows:
- Maverick – Lancer
- Viper – Retro Lancer
- Goose – Hammerburst
- Iceman – Gnasher
- Jester – Sawed off
So, why not fire up Gears of War 3 now and engage in some Top Gun shenanigans for Independence Day, earning double XP while you're at it.
