The Gears of War 4 Beta Begins April 18th

By Mark Delaney, 1 year ago
If you've grown accustomed to multiplayer betas lasting for just a weekend, you may be thrilled to discover the Gears of War 4 one will go on longer, potentially much longer. The open beta will run from April 25th through May 1st. However, if you play Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on Xbox One or Windows 10 before April 11th, you'll be entered into an early access period with the game's beta that runs an additional week: April 18th through 24th.

It would seem likely that many serious fans of the series will then have access for the full two weeks. That's quite the beta period. The early access incentive was announced previously, but now we know just when and for how long this preview of one of this fall's biggest games will occur.
