It’s been a monthly process since the launch of Gears of War 4, and today we’re here once again, bringing you news of two more fresh additions to the Gears of War 4 map roster.

The first map of the two takes us to the once proud vessel of the COG navy fleet, to board the long abandoned and rotting cruiser that lies in a dried seabed. Named after the Imulsion sickness introduced by the Locust, Rust Lung is a beloved map that first came into play in Gears of War 3’s first DLC pack, the Horde Command Pack.

It’s a small map, but what is lost in size is more than made up for with the inclusion of Smoke Grenades and a Silverback in the centre. There are also switches on either side of the map that, when flipped, will raise or lower torpedo clusters in the middle of the map forming temporary cover from the open slaughter zone in the centre.

The second map is a personal favourite of mine, and is a welcome return to the series after first arriving in Gears of War 2. Avalanche is a map that is set in a mountainside resort, overlooked by a steep mountain bank in which the slightest rumble of combat may be just enough to trigger a deadly oncoming avalanche, which transforms the battlefield and brings new weapons into play, such as the Torque Bow and Boomshot. Avalanche is another of the smaller maps you will find in Gears of War 4, but with an avalanche ready to drop at any moment, the transformation brings enough variation to stop even the most hardened Gears of War players from getting too comfortable.

Both maps are available to download now individually for the price of £4.19 each. Owners of the Gears of War 4 Season Pass will find both included for free and can install them now.

Are either of the latest maps enough to tempt you back to the Gears universe once more? Let us know in the comments below or via our usual social channels.
