the prices for the New gears is absolutely outrageous I'm boycotting it or this new business model will flourish. The "season pass" is the ability to be able to play all Maps in private matches which means they cannot actually be used by none season pass holders even though they are in the game. The whole offer from gears is an absolute mess. not voting cold though as this price deal is good in relativity if you go for it. But I will not be buying this gears iteration even though I'm a huge fan. These crazy rascals.

What are you talking about? The game comes with 10 maps, which can be played by EVERYONE.

They are then rolling out 2 new maps every month, which are rotated into the online map cycle for FREE.

If you get the season pass you can play these extra maps privately at any time without waiting for them to be cycled in.

Furthermore only one person needs to "own" the extra maps all the people joining do not.

yeah I understand the model they're using. I'm saying that whoever buys the season pass is getting a pretty raw deal. and it's £80 for a video game....mental

Seems pretty fair to me. No real need to get the season pass unless you hardcore play the game.

What baffles me is who actually sees value in this season pass. To make the season pass even LESS valued only the private match host needs to "own" the map to play the map in a private match. Surely the amount of people that would buy this is tiny.

Why not just make the maps free for all in constant rotation at that point.

More baffling is that people are looking straight past the fact they are basically giving away 24 dlc maps to play on throughout the year. They should be commended, you won't see COD do anything similar. No one is forcing you to buy the ultimate edition. It is obviously aimed at the hardcore players as most ultimate editions are.

Oh definitely not, don't mistake my post for looking past the free maps. But the game has "packs" to open like Halo, which will no doubt be tied to micro transactions. Why not just go all the way rather than rotating the maps.

​I don't agree with nay of this lol. season passes have been around for years now. Before that it was just map packs would come out and would cost more than a season pass. and the 'packs' I don't even know what your on about. they have bonus cards which cost nothing and are there to help you rank up and have different objectives on mp. these are similar to the burn cards in Titanfall.
#15
and it isn't £80 just for the game. it's also including the season pass. it just giving you the option to buy standard game or the game woth the map packs (which gives you a bit of discount)

I don't actually understand why this has got cold. if you don't like the game it doesn't make it a bad deal. it makes it a good deal for anyone that wants to purchase the game

It's the cheapest way of purchasing it, but there's minimal benefit from buying the season pass, than buying just the game @ £20 cheaper... And again don't forget to game share reducing the cost by half

It's not that they're only available in private but for that point in time (which they're not available for normal players) they will only be available in private while they wait for the next to rotate in.

So while 2 are out for the normal players everyone can play them then when the next 2 come out the previous 2 will only be available for season pass players....Just as an example. It might not be 2 at a time. Sorry if I've misunderstood your question.

There's more information here:
http://www.trueachievements.com/n23476/gears-of-war-4-ultimate-collectors-editions-available-season-pass-detailed.htm

This might sound patronising if you know all of this already and I've misunderstood.

Just seems like a raw deal for those that shell out just because they want more maps available at all times....and more so because of the high price they are originally asking for. At this Deal price it seems not so bad to be honest but I still think Coalition are taking the P**s a bit.

No single player DLC. Poor ill be giving the season pass a miss

​but for people wanting it, it's a good deal. this site is for deals and discounts etc. you are voting cold because you don't agree with what the developer is offering. I've also put in the description about standard price which again is cheapest.

Hey pal in my first post up there at the top I was saying that I haven't voted it cold specifically because the deal was good. Wouldn't vote cold on a ok deal.

Just pi**ed at Coalition for the horrible pricing.

Sorry for any confusion.

​but everyone is owing cold for what I assume to be the same reasons. the fact is that the deal is good considering its more expensive elsewhere
#25
It's a tough sell on this one. I agree that the deal is good (in relativity to the original cost) but most people are pretty pi55ed about the announcement of what the Season Pass entails. The voting on here doesn't always match the quality of the deal unfortunately.

That's why I didn't vote cold because it's not your fault that The Coalition have been a jerk at offering a terrible Season Pass that doesn't seem to have any single player content or anything of substance. People are voting cold because the overall cost and quality of what you'll get with Gears seems pretty damn awful.

Some people will vote cold because of the region thing too. Not everyone will want to bother changing regions I've seen many Canada deals that I've loved and have gone for that still had a ton of cold votes.

#27
It's great the maps are in matchmaking rotation for all players. Region pricing aside, the asking price for the pass/ultimate is obviously absurd given the content that has been detailed at the moment. If there's a significant story expansion and classic Gears' character skins to go along with those private maps, then it might just be an easier pill to swallow.

Horde mode hasn't been confirmed yet either, but is expected to make its return. While versus multiplayer in private matches may not be too common, playing Horde privately most certainly is, so there may yet be value in a group member 'owning' the maps.
