Gears of War 4 is now in Open Beta on Xbox One, with players able to download the Beta client via the Xbox store now.
Previously only available to owners of the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, the Beta is now available for all Xbox Live Gold Members to download. The Gears of War Open Beta is available until May the 1st and features three playlists that showcase three different multiplayer game modes – Deathmatch, Co-Op Team Deathmatch and the newly added Dodgeball. It’s lacking a little in innovation, but it’s still Gears of War multiplayer so it’s still fun to play and full of brutal 3rd person combat.
If you’re planning on purchasing Gears of War 4 upon release its certainly worth giving the Beta a go – as any players who reach level 20 in the Beta will unlock special rewards in the full game (a vintage Kait character skin, vintage weapon skins, a vintage kait emblem and a unique bounty card). So rev up your Lancer and join the fray today!
