I tried to play Horde on casual earlier. It didn't take long for the game/server to matchmake me to other players. However, I can't seem to play King of the Hill. It's stuck at the finding players screen.

Is it trying to find local SG players only?

I do not know how this all works. This GOW4 is the only online game I've tried to play in years.

PVP don't have crossplay for PC and Xbox players, currently Gow4 is testing crossplay only for social... GOW4 PC is already dead for competitive PVP maps.

I have checked out the Microsoft US website for a Xbox One S deal. Currently, there are two price ranges to choose from since it is a Black Friday there. 1) US$249 (500GB) and 2) US$299 (1TB). The best thing is that you get to choose a free game and your console color.

After a simple conversion, I find that in Singapore dollars, the 500GB is about S$355. I have not checked whether the shipping free or not. But is it worth it to buy from the US website?

I am waiting until mushrooms are growing on my head for the release of Xbox One S in Singapore.

https://gearsofwar.com/en-us/forums/...8c51b3b2/posts

The time has come for us to run a special test weekend event to trial Crossplay Versus in Gears of War 4. This test is being conducted to evaluate the potential of a more permanent Crossplay solution in the future to allow Windows 10 and Xbox One gamers to play together in Versus outside of Private Matches.

Crossplay is divisive in any Versus experience, and Gears of War 4 is no different. From the beginning, we stated our intention to keep both platforms separate in non-cooperative game modes in order to preserve competitive balance. Conserving a fair, competitive environment remains a top priority for us.

The purpose of this weekend is to give Crossplay a trial run in a public playlist. We care deeply about players on both platforms and we’ve heard you, so our goal is to use this event to bring in a ton of data and listen to feedback from players on both platforms to examine the results.

What comes next after this hasn’t been decided – this weekend is an incredibly important first step in this process. Once we use the combination of our data and your feedback together, we’ll be able to make an informed next step (or not as the case may be). The key thing we want to stress is that we won’t be making any surprise changes all of a sudden based on this weekend.

We need as many of you to participate as possible to make this a truly effective test. As a thank you for participating, we’ve increased the win / loss XP for match completion and allowi squads of up to 5 players into this Social style playlist. Some of you may play this weekend and never match with another PC gamer. Others will. Regardless, we’d truly appreciate your feedback.

The settings for this test are as follows:

Playlist Settings
PC and Xbox players can matchmake together in this special Versus Playlist from Friday December 2nd - Monday December 5th.

Playlist Type: Social
Modes: Team Deathmatch, Dodgeball, King of the Hill
Maps: All (including Checkout and Dry Dock)
Win XP: 1500 (up from 600)
Loss XP: 750 (up from 100)
Maximum Squad Size: 5

Please do let us know your feedback by posting in this thread. Please tell us the Platform you play on and how you felt about the gameplay experience if you knowingly played with players on another platform.

Even if you haven’t been in a match in Crossplay, we still want to hear your voice. Let us know your concerns or hopes for Crossplay Versus in this thread along with which platform you primarily play on.

Thank you in advance for your feedback and time to help us perform this special test.

The Coalition

The Festive Collection

Gearsmas brings a whole bunch of new festive-themed items to customize your look in the spirit of the Holiday!

The Gearsmas Pack is full of Holiday Presents with 28 pieces of unique content to collect. For 400 Credits, each pack contains One Bounty and two items from the Gearsmas collection listed below:

3 ‘Ugly Gearsmas Armor’ Characters – JD, Kait and Swarm Drone
4x Gingerbread Weapon Skins
4x Festive Tree Weapon Skins
4x Snowman Weapon Skins
4x JD Wrapping Paper Weapon Skins
4x Kait Wrapping Paper Weapon Skins
4x Swarm Wrapping Paper Weapon Skins
1 Commemorative Gearsmas Emblem
For the first time, there’s also some special timed rewards to collect that can’t be found in the Gearsmas Pack. Our new Daily Rewards system will be handing out some holiday presents on the days listed below – simply jump on Gears of War 4 to claim your gift!

December 16th: Chuzzmas Emblem
December 24th – 26th: Ice Boomshot
Special Events

On top of all the new customization items to add to your collection, there’s also new ways to play!

Snowball Fight is a brand new special event that features the first custom holiday weapon for Gears of War 4 – the Snowshot. This icy looking Boomshot that fires Snowballs which, in true Gears fashion, still gibs enemies!

The mode is a variant on TDM where everyone starts with the Snowshot and 2 Snowballs. Just like real-life Snowball Fights, you’ll have to scramble to pick up more Snowballs when you’re out!

In the spirit of coming together during the holidays, Crossplay Versus is also back in a Special Event playlist. Throughout Gearsmas, Xbox One and Windows 10 players can game on together in Social with squads of up to 5 players.

As an additional thank you to our fans, both of these playlists feature 1.5x XP for the duration of Gearsmas!

New Surprises

There’s even more to come throughout December for Gears fans. Later this month, the UIR are joining the fight with their own UIR Gear Pack – we’ll be revealing more information on dates and content in this pack next week.

Speaking of the UIR, fans have hunted down many an Easter Egg in our Campaign – but there might be something new to find on December 25. Good luck in your Easter Egg hunt Gears fans!
