With Gears eSports on the rise once again- with the arrival of the Gears of War 4, the Gears eSports scene has begun to boom but this time around, the developers are right behind them.

Revealed awhile back, The Coalition recently started a new program entitled the “Gears eSports program”, which essentially is a crowdfunding program, of sorts. Players will be able to purchase certain items, in-game packs, and perhaps even more- that will go directly towards the events and prize pools for Gears of War eSports events. It’s a great idea by the developers; especially considering the competitive Gears of War community being in a sort of “reset period”, if you will, after being on the decline ever since the original Gears of War trilogy concluded. This program gives fans a way to directly give back to what they love, and receive some bonuses in return.

With that said, the first ever Gears of War 4 eSports Supporter Pack has recently been revealed. These packs will feature 5 card slots, each card giving you a specific in-game item, which contain the following:

  1.       Escalation Bounty or Gears eSports Emblem
  2.       Gears eSports Black Steel COG Character or Gears eSports Black Steel Weapon Skin
  3.       Gears eSports Black Steel COG Character or Gears eSports Black Steel Weapon Skin
  4.       Customization item from the Gears of War 4 Card Pool (Character, Weapon Skin, or Emblem)
  5.       Customization item from the Gears of War 4 Card Pool (Character, Weapon Skin, or Emblem)

 

The Supporter Packs will be available to purchase for $9.99, starting on October 16th, alongside the launch of the first Gears Pro Circuit Weekly Online Tournament. It has also been started the the Gears eSports Black Steel items, will be exclusive to the Gears eSports Supporter Packs, so if that’s something you’re interested in, purchasing the Supporter Packs will be the only way to get them.


Gears of War 4 officially launches on October 11th, with the Ultimate Edition being available for owners on October 7th.
