Gears of War 4 has finally adjusted the costs of their Gear Packs which have honestly been ridiculous to earn since launch. This is great as the packs took a long time to earn and now it seems like what I'd say are completely reasonable numbers versus time played. With the third title pack these Gear Packs are unlocked by use of in-game earned credits from map completions or by purchase with real money as they're microtransactions. The packs each contain multiple cards out of hundreds available that unlock decorative items and are available in waves along with small special limited packs. The original and updated cost of packs follows.
Horde and Versus Boosters - 400 credits or $.99
Operations Packs - 800 Credits or $1.99 (Formerly 1000 Credits or $1.99)
Elite Packs - 2000 Credits or $4.99 (Formerly 3500 Credits or $4.99)
Community Packs - 400 Credits or $.99
eSports Packs - No Credit Value and $9.99
Feature Packs - 2000 Credits or $4.99 (Formerly 4400 Credits or $9.99)
I believe these changes are actually above fair and offer players a decent unlock rate. It's great that The Coalition has been working to improve the game since launch and this should keep be happily playing Gears of War 4 into the future.
