Yesterday, it was confirmed that Gears of War 3‘s Aaron Griffin would be joining Gears of War 4’s multiplayer roster. Now the developers have also confirmed that not only will Griffin be a timed event unlock but will start off the new reward system for Gears of War 4.

To unlock Griffin players will need to log into Gears of War 4 starting tomorrow and get 750 kills in public versus or public or private Horde.

  • Complete the ‘Aaron Griffin Challenge’ timed achievement in Gears of War 4 anytime between April 20th at 10am PT, – April 30th at 10am PT
  • Head to and sign in with the Gamertag used to complete the challenge
  • Click the Claim Reward button on the page. Aaron Griffin will be instantly awarded to your account
  • Those who don’t complete the challenge can purchase Griffin in May.

The Coalition stated that future rewards similar to how Griffin is being awarded will be presented in future events.

Moving forward, our intention is to release Xbox Live Challenges for future special events using the same system as Griffin. This means you’ll be able to track your progress towards Challenge Unlocks (like the Flaming Weapons) in real-time and claim your rewards instantly via Yes, that means the end of manual tracking!

Gears of War 4 is now available for Xbox One and Windows 10.
