Gears of War 4's 'Elite Pack,' at present, costs either 4000 in-game credits or a fairly pricey micro-payment. The Elite Packs contain highly-prized cosmetic emblems and skins for characters and weapons, similar to Overwatch's loot crates. The difference between Overwatch's loot crates and Gears of War 4's Elite Packs is the speed of generation.
Earning 4000 credits in Gears of War 4's multiplayer modes can take quite a while, and The Coalition agrees.
In a statement on the official Gears of War 4 forums, The Coalition said they had heard the feedback and will be lowering the in-game cost of the Elite Pack to 3500.
Additionally, the amount of credits earned for completing a Versus match has been boosted.
The Coalition also emphasized that players can work towards any cards they wish by destroying duplicate cards for scrap, to then spend building something more desired.
It's good to know The Coalition are listening to feedback, particularly given the sense of grind earning 4000 credits could induce. Hopefully, the system will go towards funding plenty of free post-launch content as seen with Overwatch, and not simply a way to gouge extra cash.
