Possibly the Xbox One’s hottest upcoming exclusive, Gears of War 4 will get a limited beta starting April 18th, which is a month away. In order to get in on the action, you’ll first need to own Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on either Xbox One or Windows 10. That’s not all, though. You’ll also have to play the game before April 11th to be eligible for a code to the Gears of War 4 beta.
Here’s an official statement on how this is going to go down:
“Beginning on April 18, fans who’ve played Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on Xbox One or Windows 10 will begin to receive tokens in waves for early access to the beta. Following the conclusion of early access on April 24, all qualifying Xbox Live Gold members on Xbox One will be invited to join the beta until it ends on May 1.”
Gears of War 4 is under development at The Coalition and does not have a release date at the moment, but we expect it to come out sometime in Fall 2016.
