Gears of War 4’s New Beta Tutorials Video Focuses on Multiplayer Modes

Developer The Coalition has released today the third video installment in its Gears of War 4 ‘Beta Tutorials’ series.

In the latest video, which can be viewed below, The Coalition QA director Prince Arrington explains the main objective behind the two multiplayer modes in Gears of War 4’s beta — Team Deathmatch and Dodgeball — and how teams can turn the tide if they’re on the back foot in a fight.

The first episode in Beta Tutorials focused on players getting to terms with ‘the basics’ of Gears of War 4, while the second episode placed more of an emphasis on map control and the best routes to make in all three beta maps: Harbor, Dam and Foundation.

The Gears of War 4 beta officially kicked off as of Monday, April 18, for Gears of War: Ultimate Edition owners, who began to receive their early access codes for the beta.

Meanwhile, the Gears of War 4 beta will eventually become public to all Xbox Live Gold members from Sunday, April 24, with The Coalition planning to end the beta on May 1.

Running on the Unreal Engine 4, Gears of War 4 is scheduled for a worldwide release on October 11, 2016, for Xbox One.
