Gears 5 ‘All Hallows Eve’ Halloween Event Revealed
Gears 5 is already a spooky game, with monstrous beings attempting to claw your eyes out at every turn. But things are about to get even spookier because Halloween has descended upon Sera! Gears 4 brought back the Halloween events in a big way that included loot like Flaming guns, and Gears 5 is bringing even more Hallowed goodness with its own Halloween event which is now live!
A blog post on the official Gears of War website details the “All Hallows Eve” special event. First off is the return of Pumpkin Ball. Pumpkin Ball is a returning game mode from Gears 4 that is a variant of the base game’s Dodgeball mode. This mode typically has 5 players on each side fighting it out, with players getting revived if they score a kill and survive for 5 seconds. In Pumpkin Ball however players will only be able to kill enemies if they score a headshot, or blow them up, and players are revived instantly instead of having a delay.
Gears fans will also have the opportunity to gain new skeletal themed skins, participate in a Terminator-centric Horde Mode, and try out the new “The Labyrinth” Escape Hive. The Halloween event is live right now and will be available to all Gears 5 players until early November. Be sure to check it out before it’s over! Gears 5 is available now on PC and Xbox One, and it is currently available to all Xbox Game Pass subscribers as well.
