Xbox Wire has revealed some details about the two multiplayer maps being added to Gears of War 4 at the start of next month, with Season Pass holders granted a week’s worth of early access.
“Revisit the iconic supermarket in Cole’s hometown of Hanover 25 years after the events of Gears of War 3 in this Legacy Map. Much like the rest of Sera, nature is reclaiming whatever it can following the Locust Wars, but that hasn’t slowed the fast, furious and frenetic combat that takes place between the checkout lanes and the electronics department.”
“Transported from a COG ship building facility to a ship breaking scrapyard on a Seran mudflat, this fan favorite returns with a vengeance to Gears of War 4 Versus Multiplayer and Horde modes.”
Season Pass holders will have access to the two maps from 1 November via the Developer Playlists, which allows squads of up to three to play them in Dodgeball and Arms Race modes in Versus Multiplayer, and Horde mode while on normal difficulty.
The maps will be made available for free on all public playlists from 8 November. Two new maps will be added every month for a year on a rotation basis, with Season Pass owners given access to all of them for offline modes.

Turtle Rock Studios have ended their association with Evolve effective immediately, according to a blog post on the game’s forums.
It seems like the decision was taken out of Turtle Rock’s hands:
“This is the life of AAA game developers who aren’t self-funded and don’t own their own IP. We don’t get to make the call. We all know that going in but we still sign the dotted line because we love what we do.”
Although they may be ending their support for Evolve, Turtle Rock confirmed they will still continue to work on future projects as a development studio:
“Those of you who’ve followed Turtle Rock Studios, this is not goodbye. We have lots of stuff in the works that we hope you’ll enjoy but we are departing on the Laurie-Anne for the last time and must bid a farewell to the planet Shear. We’ll see you all again, another time on another world….”
A special Evolve-themed livestream will be held tomorrow on the game’s Twitch channel, which the developer will use as a final chance to say goodbye to the Evolve community.
