Going for over ten years now, the Gears of War franchise has a long-running and devoted fan base. As a humble thank you to gamers that have already supported the franchise, The Coalition is giving away rewards in Gears of War 4.

If you have ever played any of the previous titles, even if you simply booted up the game, and you have an active Gold membership or you are a Silver Member that has logged in in the past year, you will receive an exclusive emblem and a bonus operations pack.

The ‘First-Wave’ emblem can be accessed through the Gears of War 4 customization menu for qualifying gamertags, while the developer is currently sending codes for the operations pack via Xbox Live message. Each operations pack includes one guaranteed customization item and four cards of any type for use in multiplayer.
