Gears of War 4 Beta on Xbox One Won’t Have a Pre-Download; Codes Will Come in Waves

The multiplayer beta for Gears of War 4 will start on April 18th for those who own Gears of War: Ultimate Edition and The Coalition Studio Head Rod Fergusson provided a couple of useful tidbits of information for those waiting for their code.

First of all, there will be a single code sent to those eligible, and there won’t be a pre-download available. Codes will be sent starting on the 18th.

Secondly, codes will be sent in waves in order to make sure that the servers can handle the load. This means that you should probably wait to actually get your code before you ask time off work to your boss.

Those who did not get Gears of War: Ultimate Edition will have to wait until April 25th in order to get access to the beta, provided that they have a Xbox Live Gold subscription.
