Gears of War 4 recently received two presents from The Coalition: The long awaited Gearsmas and a controversial UIR Gear Pack — controversial because thousands of fans called TC greedy because of this move. To them, spending all their credits on the Gearsmas offering and having to pay real money for the UIR Gear Pack was unfair.
Gamers say that this was developer’s plan from the very beginning. To add more fuel to the fire, GoW4 fans also feel betrayed because they didn’t get the items they wanted despite spending thousands of credits on Gearsmas and the UIR Gear Pack.
Despite all the backlash, a new GoW 4 UIR Gear Pack will be released after Christmas. For the time being, there is no exact date available as to when this UIR Gear Pack lands. However, we believe the pack should arrive on December 26.
Since this piece of news came shortly after the recent Gearsmas UIR Gear Pack story, fans once again vented their frustration the developer’s forum.
It is hard to control yourself. […] It’s a science and it’s designed to empty peoples wallets. It’s a disgusting thing and I feel sorry for anyone who is suckered in by it. They only see us as cash cows, just remember that.
There are over 2000 replies to the GoW4 forum thread where fans discuss TC’s UIR Gear Pack strategy. For the time being, TC hasn’t offered any official statement regarding these greed accusations. TC’s PezRadar, one of the community administrators confirmed he passed over fans’ feedback, but that’s about all. Naturally, this adds to player’ anger.
PezRadar also added that the upcoming GoW4 UIR Gear Pack is coming after Christmas and will be available for more than one week.
To be a bit more specific as I think the OP didn’t come across it very well, the UIR content will be available again right after Christmas and for an extended period of time. (Well over a week)
In a nutshell GoW4 fans, you’d better save your credits for the upcoming UIR Gear Pack — that is, if you still want to support TC.
