LD Fenix and his highly skilled squad will feature in the co-operative mode of "Gears of War 4" in Oct 11 release date. Further, Horde mode is available once again to satiate gamers craving for multiplayer combat.

To recall, "Gears of War 4" was among those presented by Microsoft during Electronic Entertainment Expo when Play Anywhere stole the spotlight. Meaning, this action game can cross-platform between Windows 10 PC and Xbox One. Another good thing to contribute for "Gears of War 4" addiction is sync features for saved games in either of the two.

Meanwhile, "Gears of War 4" hyped up through promo stint by developer The Coalition although it ends today. There were $100 gift cards for US gamers only because of limited slots and impositions from the sponsors. At any rate, expect more universal promo to come as release date draws near.

iTech Post detailed the new "Gears of War 4" multiplayer gameplay available through Arms Race, Escalation and Dodge Ball. Combat aggression is the key to conquer these setups and Horde mode as well. Therefore, gamers should prepare by scouting as early as now for trusty squad of fellow operatives. Again, it doesn't matter if they are hailing from PC or Xbox One because The Coalition is fine with either platform anyway.

Now for those waiting for "Gears of War 4" main game, preloading is available today but gamers must meet several criteria first. Expect a file that requires at least 54.6 GB of disk space for those using Xbox One console. There is no definite date yet for PC preloading but The Coalition assures ample time before launching event, Game Spot said.

Release date is set on Oct 11 for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC but gamers can opt for "Gears of War 4" Ultimate Edition for $100 which warrants playing 4 days ahead of schedule.
