If like us, you're still slowly grinding away to get those elusive Gears of War 2 wings, you're running out of time to level yourself up to the max before Gears of War 3 hits the streets next month. So, as the first in the final five consecutive planned bonus XP weekends gets underway today, Epic Games has released details of when the next four will be taking place and how much additional XP you'll be able to earn.
This weekend, from now until Monday, 22nd August 9:00AM EST, you'll be able to grab 5x XP, then over subsequent weeks, the XP multiplier will go up in increments of five until Gears of War 3 launches, and most of the community migrates to the new game, leaving the Gears 2 battlefields comparatvely quiet. We'd imagine.
Here's the deets:
- 8-19-2011 9:00 AM EST Through 8-22-2011 9:00 AM EST 5x XP
- 8-26-2011 9:00 AM EST Through 8-29-2011 9:00 AM EST 10x XP
- 9-2-2011 9:00 AM EST Through 9-5-2011 9:00 AM EST 15x XP
- 9-9-2011 9:00 AM EST Through 9-12-2011 9:00 AM EST 20x XP
- 9-16-2011 9:00 AM EST Through 9-19-2011 9:00 AM EST 25x XP
There'll also be 'Tickers by the Boatload' in Horde, with 32 rounds of shotgun ammunition to blow them up with just to mix things up a bit. And why not? Jump onto Gears 2 now to get yourself some 5x XP action, then keep the schedule above to hand for the next four weeks.
Gears of War 3 is out on September 20th, 2011 worldwide, except Japan, where it launches on September 22nd. Tick, tick, tick, tick, boom!
