Gears of War 4’s online multiplayer beta is set to begin very soon and fans everywhere are adjusting their armor and dusting off their Lancer rifles.
Not only will the beta give players a taste of what to expect from the full game, it will also allow players to earn exclusive rewards when the final game drops.
GameSpot reports that players who manage to rank up to level 20 will unlock vintage skins for the Lancer and pistol. They will also get a vintage Kait character skin, along with a bounty card which will offer double XP in a match.
It’s not yet clear if the rewards will be usable in the beta or if ou’ll get them when the full game launches. Either way, players with these skins will no doubt distinguish themselves on the battlefield.
The Gears of War 4 beta will begin on April 18 and will be instantly accessible for anyone who bought Gears of War: Ultimate Edition before April 11. Everyone else will have to wait until April 25 to join in.
