The Coalition recently released the May content update for Gears of War 4, featuring lots of goodies. With this, the company’s efforts to keep players coming back for more continue and this time, most fans are happy with what they got. The latest Gears of War 4 update brings back Benjamin Carmine, adds multi-GPU support for Windows 10, and features one brand new map.

Gears of War 4 – Dawn Map

GoW 4 brings a new map to the table titled Dawn, an outside map that features an abandoned mining colony with two defense points for players to storm and/or defend. Franchise fans will also be more than glad for the return of the Security Map from Gears of War 2, complete with Horde and Respawn modes along with its infamous lasers. The Coalition also brought important changes to King of the Hill gameplay, blocking side entrances now.

Benjamin Carmine returns to Gears of War 4

Another thing that will make Gears of War 2 fans happy is the return of Benjamin Carmine. The Riftworm’s meal has seen much better days in the past, but from now on players will get access to the zombie version of Mr. Carmine from the updated May Gear Packs.

Also, Season 1’s tier rewards have also been revealed with Diamond weapon skins.

The update brings Multi-GPU support

Beside the new cool content, Gears of War 4 now features multi-GPU support. This is extremely useful for players trying to match up their graphics cards to the great performances of the Xbox One.
