Getting Up-Close With The Xbox One S Gears Of War 4 Console

Gears of War 4 is one of the biggest releases for Xbox One owners in 2016, and to mark the launch, Microsoft is releasing a limited edition 2TB Xbox One S console inspired by the series. The console comes in a striking crimson red and has the iconic skull logo emblazoned across the front where the fan vents are. The console features actual etched scratches in the system to give it a "battle-weathered" look and feel.

The package also includes a custom Xbox One S wireless controller, which features the same look of the console including the color scheme and the etched-in scratches, and a full download of the Ultimate Edition of Gears of War 4 for both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. This also includes digital copies of Gears of War, Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3, and Gears of War: Judgment through backward compatibility.

With Gears of War 4 hitting next week (or later this week if you've pre-ordered the Ultimate Edition of the game), we took a closer look at the new Xbox One S design. The limited edition console releases on October 7 to coincide with the Gears of War 4's early access period for Ultimate Edition owners.
