Gears of War 4 Beta Codes Will No Longer Roll Out Chronologically

on April 19, 2016 12:24 PM

Xbox One owners are likely anticipating their codes for the Gears of War 4 multiplayer beta to start rolling in at this very moment, but a small change in the process has been detailed on the official Gears forums. While it was promised that codes would be sent out in the order at which players purchased and logged onto Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, it seems that is no longer the case.

An administrator post on the official site contained the following message:

Microsoft Operations had an issue this morning with their code drop and unfortunately the codes will not be distributed in chronological order as originally messaged. We will be doing another code drop this evening to help address some of the issues. As noted before, codes will be going out in waves as we ramp up our servers through the beta.

Starting this morning, codes will be rolling out to more players, regardless of when they played Ultimate Edition.

We will be sending out a higher volume of codes to help compensate for this change and due to server stability seen during Day 1 of our beta.

This change and volume will carry on through Wednesday and Thursday morning (pacific time) which will cover off on everyone for early access.

The multiplayer beta will open up to all Xbox Live subscribers on April 25, 2016.
