Gears of War 4 is still a few weeks out at this point, but I'm excited to start thinking about cutting monsters in half with a lancer once again. The gooey, gritty heart of Gears is important to me, so seeing what The Coalition have done with it is a high priority on my list for the rest of the year.
If you have picked up the game digitally already, and want to be ready to go when midnight comes around October 11th, you can preload the game right now for Xbox One. This will allow the game to download now so you aren't messing around with that on launch day. This was confirmed by the official Gears of War account on Twitter:
Good news! #GearsofWar4 pre-load for XB1 digital pre-orders begins later today at 5pm PDT (12am UTC). Expected download size will be 54.6GB.
