Microsoft and The Coalition have finally detailed when and how we’ll be playing the much awaited Gears of War 4 multiplayer beta. As you should know, you have a chance to play it substantially first if you have bought a copy of Gears of War Ultimate Edition, the remastered version of the original Gears of War.
All the dates are as follows:
- Early access for Ultimate Edition players – April 18
- Open beta – April 25
More importantly, early access has been extended to everyone who’ll play Gears of War Ultimate Edition before April 11. So play Ultimate Edition before that date, on both Windows 10 PC and Xbox One, and you will be able to enter the beta on April 18.
Gears of War will also be at PAX East this year with the Gears eSports ESL Pro League Season 2 finals, a panel and Gears 4 playable on the show floor.
