If you’re worried about the multiplayer maps of Gears of War 4 not being varied enough for your tastes, you won’t have to wait for long. When the game releases in October of this year, The Coalition will also be introducing multiple free DLC packs for rotating Gears of War 4 maps, in order to keep the game fresh.
Gears of War 4 will launch with ten maps initially, but these rotating maps will be coming in and out of operation in order to keep the game varied.
There is, of course, always the possibility that a favorite map of yours will drop out of the circuit in order to make way for a new one, but The Coalition has that figured out too.
All maps will also be available as paid DLC for you to use in private matches, and with that only the host needs to have the maps in order for everyone to play on them.
The news about rotating Gears of War 4 maps comes along with four other tidbits of information given out by The Coalition, such as a new game mode (Dodgeball, where you’re out of the game once you die unless one of your teammates kills an opponent), how it will be focusing on eSports but you can also play casually, how the game’s main competitive mode will soon be revealed, and the multiplayer beta coming out next week, as we reported earlier this week.
Gears of War 4 multiplayer will also incorporate a ladder system, using a series of six badges: depending on what badge you have, you’ll be put into public games with people that also have that kind of badge, which can help keep players in the game by keeping them from being frustrated by players that are too skilled for their tastes and their level.
