The Coalition and Microsoft have teased Gears of War 4’s upcoming Halloween special event which could possibly see the resurgence of its iconic Pumpkin Head.
The official Gears of War Twitter account tweeted the following message just a moment ago:
As you can see from the image attached to the message, it appears Gears of War 4 will continue the tradition started by Gears of War 3 of replacing the heads of all players in various multiplayer modes with giant pumpkins.
Of course, these weren’t normal pumpkin heads as each they all had an evil look to them and were much wider than a character’s normal head. Judging by the teaser image released today, it appears The Coalition might have a new look for the Pumpkin Head as its eyes are more hollowed out, although it still appears to have its two-slit nose and intimidating smirk.
Gears of War 4 received its first bonus XP event on the weekend of October 15th, which The Coalition extended by an additional day due to it having issues keeping its servers online while it ran. While we don’t know yet if the upcoming Halloween event will also offer bonus experience points, we at least know players should expect to see way more pumpkins in the game than they’re probably comfortable with.
