Microsoft and Gears of War 4 developer The Coalition have announced the beta details for Gears of War 4, and it starts in April.

Those who've played Gears of War: Ultimate Edition (on either Xbox One or PC) will get first crack at the Gears 4 versus multiplayer beta on April 18, when the first wave of beta tokens starts to go out via the Xbox Live messaging system. To qualify through the Ultimate Edition, all you have to do is play it on either platform by 11 PM PDT, April 11.

This early access period lasts until April 24, at which time all qualifying Xbox One Gold members on Xbox One can join the beta until its conclusion on May 1.

Our Take
 With multiplayer more of a focus for Gears 4, the teams on the game should be able to pull some useful data for the beta, so get in there.
