The Gears of War trilogy may have wrapped itself up this past September, but for 6 men in Scotland the war is far from over.
On November 18th through the 20th 6 Gears fans will be undertaking a mission so unthinkable that even Marcus Fenix would have to bark ‘COME ON!’ to the skies of Sera.
48 consecutive hours of Insanity level Horde Mode. Why? For charity of course. In this case said charity is the Skylight Miscarriage Organisation – www.skylightmiscarriage.org.uk (Charity Code: SC045573)
The entire event will be live streamed on Justin.tv – www.justin.tv/horde4charity as well as live tweeted on the Gears 4 Charity Twitter – www.twitter.com/horde4charity and live blogged on their Facebook page - www.facebook.com/Horde4Charity.
Everyone is encouraged to watch, tweet and post to the team and donations during the event will be possible via PayPal.
So what are you waiting for? Clear your weekend, sit back, grab those snacks, crank open that wallet and prepare to watch 6 increasingly insane Gears fanatics chainsaw the Locust Horde a new one!
