If you've been playing the Gears of War 4 beta, then you only have until tomorrow, May 1, before it's taken offline.

The multiplayer has been available to all Xbox Live Gold members since April 25; before that, there was an "early access" period that ran from April 18-24 for people who played Gears of War: Ultimate Edition before April 11.

Players who reach level 20 in the beta will receive a vintage Kait character skin and emblem, vintage weapon skins, and a unique bounty card that offers double XP for one match. The rewards will be granted when Gears of War 4 launches this year.

Additionally, everyone who plays the beta will receive a free Dodgeball avatar shirt. Dodgeball is a new mode in Gears of War 4 that has two teams of five players facing off against each other in an elimination-style deathmatch. You can see it in action for yourself right here.

Gears of War 4 releases for Xbox One on October 11. The game features Marcus Fenix's son, JD, in the starring role. The story trailer features Marcus, JD, and a cover of "The Sound of Silence" by Disturbed singer David Draiman.
