The topic of Gears of War 4 multiplayer has come up on Game Informer‘s Gears of War 4 expose, and the guys at Game Informer have given us a number of tidbits of information about the game’s multiplayer.

Multiplayer is getting a bigger focus this time around; though the game has always been focused more on its story than its multiplayer, The Coalition is dedicating themselves to ensuring that there is a larger focus on multiplayer this time around when the early games never got above around 70% story and 30% multiplayer. Rod Fergusson clarified it in another statement:

“On day one, as we were prototyping our first campaign experience, we were also building multiplayer maps. We really want to meet the needs of not just recreational players but eSports players, and it’s something we’ve been thinking about for the entire development cycle.”

The Gears of War 4 multiplayer beta will begin this spring, allowing fans of the series to be able to get an initial tease of the game’s multiplayer, much like the Gears of War Ultimate Edition multiplayer beta.

Gears of War 2’s trailblazing Horde Mode also has a good chance of returning, as according to Game Informer’s article about it…

“The Coalition wouldn’t confirm the addition of any particular multiplayer mode, but the team is keenly aware of the mode’s popularity and seem focused on making the Gears community happy moving into the future.”

Gears of War 4 multiplayer is also still humanity fighting monsters as well, with the “monsters” side playing as the Swarm and the human side playing as either the COG or Outsiders, the game’s new version of Stranded.

Each faction also has its own style of combat knife in a nice cosmetic touch, which can be seen in the picture below:

The Coalition is also going to try and capitalize on the eSports market this time around, in order to return to the series’ roots of being one of the first areas of competitive multiplayer just as popular streaming website Twitch was getting its start (a tournament that was played with the Ultimate Edition had over 130,000 viewers on Twitch). Casual fans, however, are still welcome.
