Gears of War 4 Free This Weekend for Xbox Live Gold Subscribers

By Dave Horobin, 23 days ago
Microsoft has announced that Xbox Live Gold subscribers can play Gears of War 4, the latest release in the long-running Gears of War series, for free this coming weekend.

Gears of War 4 upcoming free weekend

During the Free Play event, which begins on Thursday, January 31st at 12:01 am PT and ends on Sunday, February 3rd at 11:59 pm PT, players will be able to play Gears of War 4's campaign, Horde, and multiplayer game modes.

Released in October 2016 and currently sitting at a score of 4.3 stars out of 5 from over 6,500 community votes, Gears of War 4 has received numerous free updates since its release, with new co-op achievements to unlock with your friends, and Xbox One X enhancements for Xbox One X owners.

During the Free Play weekend, players will unlock achievements. Of course, it goes without saying that with achievements like Seriously 4.0 to unlock, there's no chance of a full completion over the weekend.

If you do decide that you like the game once the free weekend has ended, your progress will be saved, and you can continue playing Gears of War 4 with Xbox Game Pass, along with all of the other games from the series.

We've got the full list of Gears of War 4 achievements - check the list for guides to unlocking them.
