The Twelve Days of Gearsmas – 2012

It seems like only yesterday we were celebrating the season of Gearsmas. Once again this year, we will be having twelve days of fun events in Gears of War 3 and we will also be randomly awarding the fans with Gears of War and Epic Swag! We have an Epic Edition, a Retro Lancer, a Gears of War board game and much, much more!

The events start tomorrow morning. Last year’s events were so popular, we’re going to do it all again. Events are subject to change without notice.

We hope you all have a safe, happy and wonderful Holiday Season!
