Gears of War 2 20x XP Event Happening Now
Despite Gears of War 3, one of this year's most anticipated games, having been released, a large number of players still indulge in Gears of War 2, primarily the multiplayer component. As most people are aware, becoming a "Gears Veteran" in Gears of War 2 (Rank 100) reaps several awards in the third installment, including a prized in-game medal. Getting to rank 100 has been overwhelming, though, for many Gears-heads, but EPIC Games is continuing to help out players with several XP weekends. With that in mind, EPIC Games announced yesterday that until November 14, players can earn 20x XP in Gears of War 2 multiplayer.
The XP event coincides with the current Gears of War 3 double-XP weekend, so it is no doubt a Gears-tastic weekend for fans of that series. The event has been going for several hours now and continues until Monday. EPIC Games promised to continue with these events to help players get to 100, so expect a handful more of these events in the near future, but for now, get out there COG member and become a Veteran!
