Gears of War 4 is a great third-person shooter game for the Xbox One and Windows PC. Since the very first day this title was released, fans requested The Coalition and Microsoft to implement crossplay between Windows PCs and Xbox One consoles.
As we already reported, the crossplay feature debate divided gamers into two camps. Taking into account the huge pressure to implement this feature, The Coalition recently held a GOW4 Crossplay Test Weekend from December 2 to December 5.
Judging by feedback from gamers, it’s safe to say that the test was a success. Fans also suggest that the Coalition should continue to hold events like the recent crossplay test weekend every now and then, adding experience or credit incentives to convince more Xbox players to participate.
Gears of War 4 crossplay feature is coming
Sad to see the event conclude. It was a great time this weekend and being able to play with my Xbox friends was a treat.
The people arguing against keeping crossplay are narrow minded and ill informed. There is no reason at all to not have a permanent crossplay list in the social area.
It is worth mentioning that GOW 4 fans noticed that PC players weren’t top of the leader boards during the crossplay test. This is a very good observation because many Xbox One players are reluctant to play against PC gamers. They believe that it’s an unfair advantage to be on a PC and use a keyboard and mouse combo. However, the data offered by this GOW 4 crossplay test should prove them otherwise.
The Coalition should soon release a report regarding the results of the GOW 4 crossplay test. There are still many variables to take into consideration when it comes to implementing this feature. Some fans suggest that a separate playlist for crossplay or allowing Xbox users to disable crossplay would be ideal.
