GearsCON Community Night begins


Starting today, EPIC will begin to host special events each weekend which are part of GCON community nights. Posts called Gears Weekend will be made every Friday informing fans on what to expect that weekend. These posts will included information about Gears related online events and how to win some amazing prizes. This holiday weekend, EPIC will be running a 21 xXP event - July 1st thru July 5th - in Gears of War 2. When you play Gears 2 this weekend you will find 21 xXP, Flaming Bloodmounts, Boomers, Tickers, 4 xMortar Ammo and 4 xHammer of Dawn Ammo.

Twitter fans can join the conversation by using the hashtag #GearsWeekend before, during and after the event. EPIC will randomly select tweets with the hashtag every Monday. That lucky user will receive a prize.
