The Gears of War 4 beta is coming to Xbox One in spring 2016 and if you want to play as soon as possible, there are only a few hours left to make sure you've met the requirement. As Microsoft announced previously, everyone who plays Gears of War Ultimate Edition while signed into Xbox Live by March 1 will receive "early access" to Gears of War 4's upcoming beta. It's February 29, so you don't have much longer to sign in and play.

There is no word yet regarding what the Gears of War 4 beta will entail, though considering it's starting in the upcoming months, we'd expect to learn more soon.

The full Gears of War 4 is due out this fall, a release window it shifted to from holiday 2016. We still don't know much about the game at all, though Xbox executive Phil Spencer recently saw the game and reported that it's making "stunning" progress.

In other recent news, producer Rod Fergusson said Gears of War 4 would be a "graphical showcase" for Xbox One.

"Like how the original Gears of War was a visual showcase for the Xbox 360, Gears of War 4 will be a graphical showcase for the Xbox One," Fergusson said.

Additionally, Gears of War Ultimate Edition is coming to PC this year, though a release date has not been announced. You can see the game's system requirements here.
