Gears of War 4

Gears of War 4 is free to play on Xbox One for the next four days.

Xbox Live Gold members can download and play The Coalition’s Xbox One shooter, Gears of War 4, for free until February 3 at 11:59pm PT.

The free weekend is the latest in a long line of Xbox Live Gold Free Play Days from Microsoft. Previous promotions have included games like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, The Crew 2, and Fallout 4.

The full single-player campaign is included, along with the Versus, Escalation, and Horde online multiplayer modes. The game has also been updated since release with support for full 4K and HDR on Xbox One X.

Grab Gears of War 4 by clicking on the Gold Members section of the Xbox One dashboard, or via the Microsoft online store. All save data can be transferred to a purchased copy of the game if you don’t manage to save the world by Sunday night.

And if you’re tempted to dip back into the history of the series, Xbox Game Pass members can play every previous game in the franchise – Gears of War, Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3, and Gears of War: Judgment – all of which are compatible with the Xbox One via Backwards Compatibility.

Microsoft announced Gears 5 – plus mobile and PC spin-offs – at last year’s E3 media briefing. We expect more news on those, and perhaps even their release, later this year.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
