I tried to summarize the news provided from 2020 This Week in Gears announcements.
Taken from https://www.gears5.com/news (This Week in Gears)
I didn’t capture every new featured Hive or detail the Operation changes.
Some things I noticed:
- Versus Events were held almost weekly, though not always unique, they rotated through several different events. I think I counted 17 unique VS Event types.
- New Escape maps showed up more frequently than new Horde content, less frequently than Versus.
- New Horde content was few and far between
- Operations were the main source of new Horde content
Check out the list, I can add modify if people point out stuff that I misrepresented or missed altogether. Draw your own conclusions. Let’s discuss how we feel about content.
