The Coalition took to Xbox Wire today to detail the contents of the update that will be hitting Gears of War 4 tomorrow, May 2.

The May update adds two maps to the game. The first is Dawn, which is a brand new map set in an Outsider village built around an abandoned mining colony. The other map, which returns from Gears of War 2, is Security. This map was highly requested by the fans, so The Coalition remastered the map to fit modern graphical and gameplay standards. You can check out a screenshot of each of the maps below.
