The Gears of War 4 beta is finally about to begin! The "early access" beta begins today, as codes are being sent out to eligible gamers.
Gamers who played the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition before April 11 are eligible for the early access of the Gears of War 4 beta. According to Gamespot, the codes are being sent out chronologically, so gamers who played the Ultimate Edition the earliest will get access to the beta sooner than late players. The last ones to get their codes will get them on Thursday, April 21.
The beta will officially open to everyone on April 25, with those that have early access due to playing Ultimate Edition having an advantage of getting to level 20 before everyone else — leveling to 20 in the beta will earn you some sweet rewards in the full game when it releases later in October.
If the beta isn't enough to get gamers hyped for Gears of War 4 then there is always that remixed version of the Gears 4 trailer that combines the trailer footage with Mad World to get the hype flowing.
