With the new Daily Rewards system in Gears of War 4 you will also have a chance at obtaining a Ice Boomshot on December 27.
Snowball Fight is a new playlist and a variant on Team Deathmatch. Everyone is armed with a Boomshot that fires snowballs, though you only begin with two. More snowballs will have to be obtained on the field. Crossplay Versus returns as well, which will allow Xbox One and Windows 10 players to compete together with squads of up to five players in social playlists only. Each playlist featured offers 1.5 times XP boost throughout Gearsmas, which lasts until January 4, 2017.
