Xbox One and Windows 10 have a variety of game betas currently active for those who would like to 'try before they buy'.
The Gears of War 4 beta does require you to have a code to be able to participate however the Forza Motorsport 6: Apex beta will be open to all come May 5th, and the Overwatch beta will also be open to all come May 4th. You can check out all the details below.
Beta tests can be an important step in the video game development process since it provides developers with bug detection as well as feedback on design and operational readiness in a real world environment. It also provides gamers an opportunity to test and experience these titles firsthand before their official release date. Due to the number of released and upcoming betas that have been announced, I wanted to share a consolidated list of titles with links where you can download/pre-download the beta or visit the official website for more information.
