Last week, we told you about (and showed off) Gears of War 4's multiplayer action. Playing is believing, however, and Xbox Live Gold members will get a chance to experience the action themselves next week. In advance of the multiplayer beta, Microsoft has released a new trailer, set to the sonic stylings of DJ Shadow, featuring El-P and Killer Mike.

The clip shows some of the new tools that players will have access to, including the ability to do vaulting kicks and yank unsuspecting opponents from cover. In other words, your turtling tactics may not see you through the end of the match.

The beta begins April 25 and runs through May 1. Participants will unlock a Vintage Kait character for the full version of the game, when it launches later in the year.

Tomorrow, Microsoft is hosting the worldwide reveal of the new Escalation game mode, with 10 pro players facing off live. You can tune in to the official Twitch channel tomorrow at 8:00 a.m. Pacific to see all the action.
