Escalation is a multiplayer mode in Gears of War 4. It is a competitive version of the Domination game mode from Gears of War: Judgment.

Rules and RegulationsEdit

The objective is to control three rings on the map long enough to gain 210 points. Standing in a ring for several seconds will capture it and captures are faster with more teammates. Controlling all rings simultaneously is an automatic win for the round. The first team to win seven rounds, wins.

Matches start out with no pickup weapons. After each round is completed, respawn times increase and the losing team can place weapons anywhere on the map. At halftime, all weapons that have been placed disappear and the rings change locations.
