Xbox continues to get funky and have made Run The Jewels playable characters in Versus Multiplayer and Horde 3.0 in Gears of War 4. What?! Both El-P and Killer Mike have lent their voices, likeness, and ‘can’t nobody save us but us” attitude to Gears making them the first two recording artists in the Gears family. The brotherhood that Killer Mike and El-P represent as Run the Jewels perfectly matches the soul of Gears, which at its core is about that brotherhood and never fighting alone.
Also available alongside the playable EL-P and Killer Mike within the Run the Jewels Air Drop are 18 themed weapon skins, emblems and bounties to ensure players have the appropriate levels of swagger to add to their Gears of War 4 Versus Multiplayer and Horde experience.
I haven’t had a chance to try it out yet, but I’m going jump into the action this evening. Hit me up on Twitter if you want to join my party. I call Killer Mike.
As a bonus check out one of my favorite tracks from the Luke Cage soundtrack courtesy of Run The Jewels.
