Original Story: Gears of War 4 review embargo is going away before early access begins, The Coalition confirmed. The Ultimate Edition of the game will give players access to Gears of War 4 starting October 7, four days before the game is out.
The development studio confirmed that the review embargo will be lifted ahead of early access. Exact timing is yet to be revealed but we will hear more about it in the coming week.
Gears of War 4 Ultimate Edition contents includes:
- Gears of War 4 Ultimate Edition includes the base game (physical disc), a collectible SteelBook, and Season Pass.
- Gears of War 4 Ultimate Edition is your gateway to Early Access for Gears of War 4, allowing you play on Friday, October 7 – four days before the game’s standard release date.
- Season Pass includes the exclusive Vintage VIP Pack, one year of unlimited map access, early access to an exclusive VIP playlist and six Gear Packs.
- Never Fight Alone: With Gears of War 4, enjoy two-player co-op with friends locally via split-screen, over Xbox Live Gold or LAN. Player 2 can select either Kait or Del.
Early Access is also available with Collector’s Edition but it will cost you an arm and leg. Gears of War 4 is releasing on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC on October 11.
Review Embargo being lifted ahead of early access means we will have plenty of time to see what the critics think about the latest installment of Gears saga.
