This figure led to the Gears 4 beta being heralded as “the best in the history of Xbox One,” and that the game would go on to be Microsoft’s “biggest game this year.”
April also saw confirmation of the game’s Ultimate Edition. Available both physically and digitally, you’ll be able to grab the game’s Season Pass, four day early access, and the Vintage Del Gear Pack.
