Gears of War 4 Versus Multiplayer Beta for Xbox Live Gold members is finally available in the Xbox Store. You now have the chance to shape  the final version of Gears of War Multiplayer. Two game types are currently availble: the Team Deathmatch, requested by players and the new Dodgeball mode.

New characters will land in Multiplayer combat as well as brand-new weapons, maps, modes and executions. Choose one of the new characters, test them to see what they are made of, grab one of the new weapons and wreck havoc. Pick the Dropshot, a mining tool that shoots a rocket-powered explosive drill bit. If you want to take your enemies by surprise while they take cover, use the new close cover combat moves like Yank.

The Beta version is still work in progress, don’t forget to send your feedback to the team so that they can improve the multiplayer experience. This version is available in English only and you can try it out till May 1st.

Players who have already tested out the Beta version uploaded game sequences on the official Gears of War forum. You can watch them here, simply go to the last page of the thread.

The good news for Microsoft is that the game is in its beta version so it is normal for players to encounter bugs  since not everything has been thoroughly tested. The tech giant was caught by surprise by users’ negative feedback this month when it launched Gears of War on Windows 10 PCs. Complaints kept on flooding the forums triggered by poor optimization, lack of performance and bugs. It appears that things got better, since the user rating for GOW is now 3.6 stars, up from 2.7 earlier this month.
