First Free DLC Maps for Gears of War 4 Officially Revealed (VIDEO)

In today’s announcement made by Microsoft, they dropped some major love for fans of the recently released Gears of War 4. In the announcement, they highlight the first two free DLC maps released for the title.

The two new maps may seem a little familiar to veterans of the series. Checkout and Drydock were both originally featured in Gears of War 3 and now they are back to freshen up the latest title with some versus and Horde competition. You can expect the two new maps to go live on Novemeber 1st for season pass holders, November 8th for everyone else.


These aren’t the only free DLC that fans can expect. The developers behind GoW4 have already announced that each addition will be free but are going to be rotated in and back out. If you want to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the action, the best way to do that is to purchase the Season Pass for 50 USD.

Here is the trailer for the Checkout Multiplayer Map:

And the Drydock Multiplayer Map:

Don’t forget that the Halloween for Gears of War 4 is also going on where you can play an epic version of the Dodgeball mode that makes the dead stay not so dead. You can read the full details here.
