The Coalition has detailed the July update for Gears of War 4. 

Two new maps are joining the rotation this month including fan favorite Raven Down from Gears of War 1. Windflares have also been added to Reclaimed which will make player Versus and Horde mode even that much more of a challenge when players are blasted with strong winds.


Two new characters are also being added to the game including Superstar Cole and Civilian Anya. Additionally, there are new events happening in June that players can participate in:

  • Raven Down 24/7: To celebrate the release of the ever popular Raven Down, we’ll be running Raven Down 24/7 across multiple game modes later this month!
  • More for Horde Players: We recently released a new variant of Horde called ‘Anything Goes’, which pits you against 50 waves of randomized enemies. We’ll have another new Horde event for fans to take on later this month.
