Beta Giveaway, Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Updates & Gears 4 Beta News

Yesterday at the Microsoft E3 presentation it was announced that the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition (Gears UE) beta was available to play right away.

There have been a few issues with the roll out but all in all it has gone very well. If you are still experiencing issues though head over to the Gears of War Forum as they are providing regular updates on issues that have been identified and when they are being resolved.

The beta has been extended by one day so if you were unable to get on yesterday or are still waiting for your code you will still end up with a full week of beta access.

Rod Fergusson has announced this morning that the Gears UE EUwill cost you $39.99 and will include in it a beta code for Gears 4. That’s a pretty good deal if you ask me.

For the moment parties and splitscreen are not available in the Gears UE beta however Rod assures us that these features will be included in the full game.

Now for the fun part, EXL Gaming has been sent an additional beta code for the Gears UE beta and we want to help get one of you online and playing one of the most amazing franchises to ever hit a console.
