The Xbox Wire has outed the dates for the Gears of War 4 beta on Xbox One. Starting in April, those who bought and played Gears of War: Ultimate Edition will be given the opportunity to play the Versus multiplayer beta for a period of two weeks.
“Beginning on April 18, fans who’ve played Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on Xbox One or Windows 10 will begin to receive tokens in waves for early access to the beta. Following the conclusion of early access on April 24, all qualifying Xbox Live Gold members on Xbox One will be invited to join the beta until it ends on May 1.”
Beta access will be granted via the Xbox messaging service at which you can just click the link in the message to start installing the game on your console. What is being offered in the multiplayer beta is still unknown, but if it’s anything like the Gears of War 3 beta, except a few maps and maybe one or two modes in order for The Coalition to collect a decent amount of data, and to find any bugs and glitches before the game’s end of year launch.
Access to the beta has been extended too. Previously, playing Gears Ultimate Edition before March 1st was the only way to gain access, but now you can get involved as long as you play the game before April 11th. It’s also possible that towards the end of the beta period, that the Gears of War 4 beta may be open to the public. We shall find out in April surely.
