Microsoft announces the Gears of War 4 – Brothers to the End Elite Gear Pack.
Another hour passes, another pre-order bonus is revealed. This time it’s for Gears of War 4. The Brothers to the End Elite Gear Pack pays homage to some dear-departed characters from the Gears universe and even turns poor old Dom into a zombie. How’s that for a tribute?
The pack also revives the series’ tradition of offering gold weapons to day one players, with a Gold Wave Lancer and Gold Wave Gnasher included for the pleasure of Scaramangas everywhere.

All new and existing pre-orders will also receive the previously announced Vintage Del Pack, which includes the Vintage Del character model plus various retailer-specific items, such as weapon skins.
Now if only they would sort out the dreadful cover artwork, that would be a pre-order bonus.
Gears of War 4 will be released on Xbox One and PC on 11th October, 2016.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
