Gears of War is one of Microsoft’s biggest franchises and one of the main reasons why many people buy an Xbox console. The latest release, Gears of War 4, is likely to be the biggest exclusive the Xbox One has this year and with development handed over to The Coalition rather than Epic Games, it remains to be seen exactly what this new era of Gears will be like. We take a look at some of the reviews of the game to see what critics think about the release.
The open beta for Gears of War 4 is now available exclusively on the Xbox one for Xbox Live gold members. The download gives players the chance to try out the multiplayer on the latest title and experience the new weapons on two distinctive maps. It will be available until 1 May
