    Gears of War 4's global Versus multiplayer beta will be getting underway next month, with Early Access for Gears of War: Ultimate Edition owners available from 18th April. If you've yet to play the Ultimate Edition to be eligible for beta Early Access, there's still time. You can still acquire eligibility until the extended date of 11th April, rather than the previous deadline of 1st March.​
    The Coalition is creating Gears of War 4's multiplayer component in collaboration with UK-based Brink, Quake Wars and Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory developer Splash Damage, having contributed to Gears of War: Ultimate Edition. Apparently, the studio was drafted in to help with "a lot of the level design stuff", veteran Gears dev Rod Fergusson told Game Informer.​
    "Especially with meshing of multiplayer maps, we're tapping into the expertise they got from Gears of War: Ultimate Edition," Fergusson explained. "They also have a lot of expertise with online systems, in terms of matchmaking from Ultimate Edition ... They basically had to rewrite for Xbox One."​
    Gears of War 4's multiplayer beta Early Access will run from 18th April until 24th April, before the beta is thrown open for all Xbox Live Gold players on 25th April to 1st May on Xbox One​

    They have always done well in the past on the series, yet the last company did a better job than the one this group went to.
