It appears Epic Games have something big in the mix. They announced when Gears of War 3 launched last month that they will test the waters for a month, build stats, and alter the game accordingly.
A month has passed and it appears the first big addition to the game has been announced – excluding DLC.
According to the in-game calender Epic have officially announced that between 25th Nov – 25th December a new weapon skin is available if you complete “impossible mission.”
Only speculation can be made as of right now as to what the new weapon skin is – but we’ve already have a chicken launcher, so I have every faith in Epic Games that we’ll get something worth the challenge. Also, what could the “impossible mission” be? One thing is for sure, i’m liking the sound of the challenge.
