Gears of War fans are going to have to wait just a little bit longer as The Coalition has announced that Gears of War 4 will officially launch later this fall. First announced at E3 2015, the wait is almost over as Adam Fletcher, Director of Community, the Coalition, took to Xbox Wire today to announce that the next chapter in the Gears of War saga will launch on October 11th.
Gears of War 4 marks the beginning of an epic new saga for one of gaming’s most celebrated franchises, as a new band of heroes rises to confront a fearsome new threat. Harkening back to the dark and intense roots of the original classic, fans can expect 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.
Gamers will be able to get a taste long before then however, as anyone who’s played Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on the Xbox One or Windows 10 will gain access to the multiplayer beta on April 18th, while everyone with Xbox Live Gold subscriptions will gain access on April 25th. The Coalition is using this beta to not only give gamers a taste of what to expect in Gears of War 4 multiplayer, but also to gather feedback and give gamers the opportunity to help shape the multiplayer experience.
