There’s a new Gears of War 4 premium DLC pack out now, although for some reason Microsoft is calling these packs “Air Drops”.

The Run the Jewels pack – sorry, “air drop” – adds two new playable characters: EL-P and Killer Mike of the titular hip hop duo. They’re the first recording artists to feature in Gears of War.

As well as the two new characters, Run the Jewels includes 18 themed weapon skins, emblems and bounties for use in Gears of War 4’s Horde and multiplayer modes.

Check it out on PC or Xbox One; since Gears of War 4 is a play anywhere title, purchases presumably carry over between the two platforms.
