Gears of War 4 adds hip-hoppers Killer Mike and EL-P as DLC characters

Run the Jewels Air Drop is available today

2

If you have ever wanted to play a hip-hop artist killing Locust in Gears of War, now is your chance. The new Run the Jewels Air Drop DLC for Gears of War 4 allows you to do just that.

Killer Mike and EL-P from the Run the Jewels hip-hop group join the group as playable characters in Horde and Versus multiplayer mode.  Also part of the DLC, which sells for a rather hefty $19.99, is 18 new RTJ-inspired emblems, weapon skins and bounties. The DLC is part of a cross promotion between the hip-hop artists and Microsoft to help promote a new Run the Jewels tour.

The addition of the duo is part of the latest title update for the game, which adds two new maps (Drydock and Checkout) and a developer playlist, as well as numerous changes to the Xbox One and Windows 10 versions of the game.
