Are you still clinging on to Gears of War 2, before the launch of Call of Duty : Modern Warfare 2 eradicates its multiplayer scene? You’ll probably be happy to know that from today, November 6 until November 16th, you get to take part in the celebrations.
Not only will you receive triple XP (that’s more than double!), but you’ll also be privy to a special â€œtactical modeâ€ that’ll be enabled across all game types, Horde included. What’s this tactical mode, I hear you ask?
Here’s what you’ll find in tactical mode : increased weapon damage and reduced ammo counts, as well as a few subtle tweaks such as increasing down-but-not-out health, making revives viable. Public Horde will also get a difficulty increase, bumping up to Hardcore – and here’s the kicker; playlists can include individual game typesâ€”meaning you can play exactly what you want, when you want. Why, in the name of all things fried with cheese, is that only available for a week?
Anyway – It’s time to get your Gears on. At least until next week Tuesday, that is.
