PSA: Gears of War 4 Beta Begins Today for Some
Did you play Gears of War Ultimate Edition? Your code should arrive soon.
The Gears of War 4 multiplayer beta starts its rollout today, April 18, for some players. As announced previously, people who played Gears of War Ultimate Edition on Xbox One and PC before April 11 are getting in first through the "early access" period. Tokens are being distributed in chronological order based on when you played Gears of War Ultimate Edition and should all be delivered by this Thursday, April 21.
Codes will be distributed through Xbox Live messages.
If you didn't play Gears of War Ultimate Edition, you'll still be able to play Gears of War 4's beta. After the early access period ends on April 24, an open beta will begin on April 25 and run through May 1.
Alternatively, if you're attending PAX East in Boston this week, you can play the game's multiplayer mode at the show. For lots more on the Gears of War 4 beta, check out this detailed FAQ.
