Update: It has come to my attention [Thanks Poddle, Tracy] that XP will only be given out for private Horde sessions and not all private modes as previously stated. Dammit, that means that anyone who wants to shoot other people for XP will just have to deal with the lag.

For just a moment I am going to ignore the fact that even more awesome DLC has been blocked yet again so that I can focus on something really cool from Epic Games. (It can be downloaded using the free EvoGames VPN – If you didn’t already know this then shame on you for not listening to the Lazygamer Podcast).

For the whole of this week, ending August 3rd Gears of War 2 will be dishing out double XP. Not only are they unloading the XP for more than the usual weekend but the double XP can be earned in private matches as well as public, sweet.

The double XP week has obviously been put up as a celebration/promotion for the release of the Dark Corners/All Fronts packs that were put up on Xbox Live this week. I’m sure South Africa was invited, our invitation must have ummm, gotten lost in the mail… again.

How many of you out there managed to get the pack before it was taken down? If you didn’t, are you planning to? Let us know in the comments.
