Gears Of War 4 Celebrates Halloween With “Pumpkin Ball”

The Coalition has revealed Gears of War 4’s first special event, the Pumpkin Ball. It sounds like it is going to be a very intense and fast paced match of dodge ball with pumpkins.

“Pumpkin Ball is a remix of Dodgeball that introduces 1 second respawn times and reduced respawn protection, resulting in a faster paced Dodgeball experience where the dead don’t stay dead for long,” the developer explains. It sounds like it will be an interesting way to vary up the game play experience and keep everything interesting.

The Pumpkin Ball playlist offers bonus XP to those who participate and will be featured on these maps:

  • Fallout
  • Forge
  • Harbor
  • Impact
  • Lift

Making a return in this mode is the series’ Pumpkin Heads. This time around they have a new mouth inspired by the game’s Juvies.

Lastly, the Halloween Elite Pack arrives in the in-game store on October 27th. These packs contain cards that are exclusively from the Day of the Dead Legendary Collection.

Gears of War 4 is out now for the Xbox One and PC.
