Microsoft has today announced that the Gears of War 4 multiplayer beta will be starting in Spring 2016, but firstly for people who purchase Gears of War: Ultimate Edition.
The announcement is more of a reading-between-the-lines by fans, who have discovered that the small print attached to the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition‘s box art details a beta that begins next year. Players must have purchased the game, and played it with a valid Xbox Live account by March 1st, 2016.
However there’s still no further details on the beta, such as when other players without Gears of War: Ultimate Edition will be able to participate, or what the beta itself will actually contain. Gears of War 4 was only announced less than a month back at Microsoft’s E3 conference, so perhaps we shouldn’t expect to hear more soon.
