If you’re a season pass holder, then you can get your hands on two new Gears 4 multiplayer maps today. The Coalition vowed to regularly release new maps and true to their word, they’re going live with two new gameplay arenas. The first two available are remakes of classic maps from Gears of War 3, Drydock and Checkout, while completely new maps will be made available on a monthly basis. If you’re not a season pass holder then you’ll have to wait until November 8th before you can get your hands on the new content.
Rainbow Six Siege Japan DLC Teaser
An image Tweeted by Rainbow Six developers Ubisoft, along with the phrase “the time has come” (written in Japanese), suggests that the game’s final DLC isn’t all that far away.

There is currently no official release date for the DLC pack.

Rockstar went all out for their GTA Online Halloween event, including launching an Angels vs Devils mode; a twist on the Lost vs Damned mode where players are rewarded depending on the time of day. There were also a host of other bonuses available.
