Good news has arrived for all gaming enthusiasts: Gears of War 4 is now available to preload. Gamers who pre-ordered the sci-fi shooting game from the Windows App Store can now load it to their hard drives prior the official release of the game.

The main requirement to preload it is making sure the current 14393.222 cumulative build is downloaded on the Windows 10 devices that will play it, along with 80GB of free storage space. The new build was rolled out on Thursday by Microsoft.

“All Windows 10 players are strongly encouraged to download the new Windows update (September 29, 2016 – KB3194496) immediately before pre-downloading Gears of War 4. This update fixes an issue which could cause your game download to restart.” as stated by the coalition in the official Gears of War forums.

The digital version of the game will officially debut on October 7; the regular version on October 11. To add the cherry on top, purchasing this game digitally gives gamers a chance to get the Xbox One version for free via Xbox Play Anywhere.
