Gears of War 4

The beginning of a new saga for the Gears of War franchise, Gears of War 4 follows a new band of heroes as they rise to confront a fearsome new threat. It calls back to the “dark and intense” roots of the original Gears of War and promises a “familiar, yet distinct” evolution of gameplay, including “brutal and intimate action, a heart-pounding campaign, genre-defining multiplayer, and stunning visuals powered by Unreal Engine 4.”

Beginning on April 18, a beta for users who purchased Gears of War: Ultimate Edition will begin, which will expand to all Xbox Live Gold members on April 25. It will run through May 1.
