If you haven’t attended any of our events or heard of Gears Community Online Network (GCON) before here is what will be going on this Saturday. We will be hosting different types of Custom, Cooperative, and Public Lobbies that everyone is welcome too join. Lobbies will start opening at 5 PM EST with hosts from several different regions worldwide to give you the best connections possible. To join a match, simply message a host from your desired region from the list that we will post on Saturday about fifteen minutes before the event starts. Once you are in a lobby, we invite you to stay as long as you like and most lobbies run an average of three to five fours depending on attendance
• Themed Multiplayer Lobbies: Our private multiplayer lobbies. Play with other community members on connection and personality-tested hosts for some great community experiences. This season also marks the return of our old school “GCON themed” nights, which adds new twists to your Gears of War 3 experience. Don’t forget, these multiplayer lobbies count towards earning those Onyx Medals for your profile too!
• Cooperative Multiplayer Lobbies: We now offer dedicated hosts for Arcade, Horde, and Beast mode at every single Community Night event in the future. We’re also assisting all our cooperative hosts in unlocking as many mutators as possible so you don’t have to.
• Public Multiplayer Lobbies: For those of you simply looking to get into the action online with some new friends, we’ll be running public lobbies throughout each Saturday event.
