Our Take

The Coalition continues to kill it (pun intended) with Gears 4.  This is a massive update that includes a ton of fan requested additions such as Avalanche, the Carmines, new achievements, ranked crossplay, Wings, etc….   Even better, TC has already said more updates are coming in June including additional Horde updates that will add more variety to the waves of enemies in the modes.
