It turns out that the next Gears of War 2 XP event is going to be a little bit bigger than anticipated, with the 10x XP week planned for Thanksgiving actually running for ten days, despite the advertised dates on Xbox.com stating that the event runs from November 24th, 12AM GMT until November 29th, 9AM GMT.
Epic's Rod Fergusson tweeted: "Ok, little secret. Even tho all the promos will say that Thanksgiving event starts on the 24th, I'm actually going to start it on the 19th."
That's not all though, as it seems Epic really wants everyone to strive to 100% the game's achievements, with Fergusson going on to tweet that there'll actually be a little surprise, in the form of a a helping hand in getting the completely ridiculous 'Seriously 2.0' achievement.
"We're doing 10x XP for the full 10 days and I'm planning on serving up a little Horde surprise to help you grind that Seriously achievement" reads the tweet.
What could it be, we wonder? 10,000 Tickers on screen at once? One bullet to kill the lot? Now that would be brilliant... Ten waves and we'd be done. Here's hoping...
