Gears of War 2 Valentine's Day event

Friends with benefits.

Epic plans to reward the Gears of War 2 community for its loyalty with a special Valentine's Day event that increases bonuses for friends who work together in-game.

Originally proposed by forumites, the Valentine's event offers double points for revives and doubles XP in Wingman and Horde modes.

There's no immediate word on how long the conditions will be in place, but it seems safe to bet on the weekend of 13th/14th February.

Sadly though, Epic wasn't able to include some of the forum's more exotic suggestions, which included "If your wingman dies, you die as well" and "When picking up a meatshield, you get +50 points (physical love)."

Never forget.
