Today, the Gears of War 4 multiplayer beta is now available to all Xbox Live Gold members later today. Those of you who played Gears of War Ultimate Edition before April 11, were given early access from April 18-24. For those of you who are just now being able to play the beta, you will only be able to play from today through May 1.
But that’s not the only news we have for Gears of War fans. Those of you who purchase the Gears of War 4 Ultimate Edition will be able to play the game four days earlier, Oct. 7, (the game will be available to play on Oct. 11, for those who don’t purchase the Ultimate Edition).
