This weekend to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, Epic games has cooked up something special in the oven. This holiday inspired event will be called “Thanksgibbing”, the playlist will feature King of the Hill with the shotgun being replaced by a modified Boomshot called the Cluckshot and also normal Boomshot pickups will be replaced. Also to celebrate the holiday there will be a free versus multiplayer map pack being released that will require downloading before going into public matchmaking. The versus map pack will include five maps: Bulletmarsh, Clocktower, Azura, Rustlung, and Blood drive.
The Gears “Thanksgibbing” event will start on Thursday November 24th at 12 pm EST and at that time players will be prompted to download the map pack or they can download it on the Xbox Live marketplace.
