Today developer The Coalition and publisher Microsoft Studios revealed new details about the July update for their third-person shooter Gears of War 4. 

The new update brings two maps to the game. The first is a remake of the original Gears of War‘s map Raven Down, which is aimed at bringing back the core Gears of War experience. The second is a brand new map called Reclaimed Windflare. In it you’ll be tasked with killing your enemies while avoiding heavy lightning storms at the same time. This is the first time that Windflares will be a part of the game’s multiplayer.

In addition to the new maps, two new skins will be added to the game, titled Superstar Cole and Civilian Anya.

Finally, new events will also be hitting the title. Raven Down 24/7 will be a playlist that will include only Raven Down, while Horde Mode players will have a new experience to play. Details about the new Horde Mode event were not given, however it should be available to play later this month.

The Coalition also released a brand new trailer to coincide with the announcement of the update. You can check it out at the end of the article.

Gears of War 4 was originally released on October 11th, 2016, and is available on Xbox One and Windows PC.
