Gears of War 4’s March update has been detailed.

The major update for Gears includes new features in addition maps. There is a new ranked lobby system, improvements to the Gnasher, and a teaser of more content. The new maps are:

Diner: A lone neon-lit Diner in a dusty wasteland is the latest battleground in Gears 4. Developed over the course of the last 18 months, this map represents one of the most refined tactical experiences yet seen in a map from The Coalition. Combat inside the Diner is intense and claustrophobic as you fight for control of the kitchen and Sniper Spawn. Expect smaller engagements that demand close-quarters skills to come out on top. The parking lot is a more open affair where the focus shifts to ranged combat. Work as a team and win the outside and open up new flanks to catch out your opponents in the Diner.

Old Town: One of the standout maps from Gears of War 3, this map has been re-imagined in a snowy UIR Costal town, complete with a looming UIR Base lurking in the background. Old Town features the same layout fans know and love, with its clearly defined three lanes and asymmetrical elevation change from low to high. Fight over the Torque and Sniper under the Belltower, stall to stall in the market, or hunkered down in the tight, long sight-lined alleyway.

Gears of War 4 is available on Xbox One and Windows 10.
