The updated Gears of War 4 box art has been revealed, advertising for the four bonus Gears of War games being included for a limited time.
Anyone know if Overrun or Beast mode will make a return??
Neither mode is confirmed. For the love of god no one wants Overrun. Beast 2.0 will probably make a return in Gears 5 since they hit a reset on the Gears creatures with 3 and 4 meant they had to make a lot which means Beast mode might need another sequel. And Horde 3.0 should be the primary focus.
They're so unconfident with Gears 4 that they're giving away 4 other games on top of it? Damn man. How bad is the game going to be?
Dunno, but the PC version doesn't stand a chance with competitive VS mode unless it pulls a Quantum Break and goes to Steam with Win7-8 support. It'll end up being a barren wasteland for competitive modes as a Win10/Windows Store/UWP exclusive. UE on PC is in it's grave right now for multiplayer, because everyone avoids the Windows Store like the plague.
Yeah the persistence of MS with the Windows store baffles me. Like might as well make more money throwing it on steam then spending millions maintaining and designing a store no one really wants.
@Concertoine, Exactly! LOL @ the downvotes, expected it on n4g. Simple minded kids. If the store was anywhere near a respectable, functional store, with decent policies and had half the restrictions, then fine - make it exclusive like other Publishers do with 1st party games on their stores. That's not the case with the Windows Store though. Not only is it a nightmare, they're pushing Win10 exclusivity along with the UWP/Windows Store exclusivity. So that just compounds the issue for online multiplayer games where you need a large playerpool for it to survive. Gears 4 will have cross-play only for co-op modes, so just like UE on Windows Store, Gears 4's competitive multiplayer on PC will be dead within a few months. They're just killing the franchises chances on PC, along with losing out on tons of $$$$. It's idiotic really, but that's M$ for you, they rather go full force with this obvious GFWL 2.0 disaster. What can we do but watch?
Don't dismiss Windows 10, with over 270 million users as of March this year, I don't think thats going to be a problem. If it's microsoft's IP and they are providing an online ecosystem with xbox live what's your problem, why should they drop it on Steam?
@PinkCrocodile75, Here's a little education on the situation of the Windows Store, and why they should just drop it on Steam to save the game. http://www.howtogeek.com/24...
So complaining because it's free
Wow..such ignorance. The Gears games are all Backward compatible and you complain because it's been given to those buying Gears 4 for free? wow. what does that even have to do with sales?Do you even own the console? or do you just go into every Xbox article to talk BS?
xbox is so desperate giving their games away lmao. #TEAMBESTATION
JCW2005 All these perks only makes Gears 4 look temping due to all the competition from Battlefield, COD and Titanfall. What Sony got Your Grandpa Grand Turismo and How to Train Giant Dog Sim for Dummies...
That's one of the most naive comments I've read in a while.
That's an amazing deal
Yup, especially for people new to the series. I already have physical copies and additional digital copies of the 7th gen Gears games, since I bought Gears UE. When I pick up Gears of War 4, I'll give away my codes to friends.
5 games in all? Nice deal
If it's anything like it was when they did this with gears of war ultimate then I feel sorry for people who fall for this. There were thousands of us who were screwed over with that and left waiting for nearly 9 months to get the games. Also the only way to contact them was a stupid forum were they said we are looking into please wait. And left you hanging for months. It's the reason I will not even be buying gears 4. They really pi$$ed me off. Edit: what are people disagreeing with? You didn't have to wait for your codes? Great. There was alot of really angry people veing very badly treated over these codes. I will never fall for an offer like this from ms again. I just don't trust them.
So what things happen you how many people probably brought that game then sending all them free codes out me i call and in a few days i got my free codes for all the gears of war games
Where? Lol I reply to your first comment and you said What? i mean what you cant read what i said should i cap all my words for you
