Peppering the enemy with your Gnasher in the Gears of War 4’s multiplayer is becoming a reality, as the beta codes have officially started to roll out!

Last month Rod Fergusson announced that we’re working on the multiplayer component of Gears of War 4, and now that the beta is here we’re looking forward to hearing your feedback!

Running in two stages, the beta begins with an Early Access period which is officially underway. It then opens to all qualifying Gold Members on April 25th, and comes to an end on the 1st of May.
