Did you know that you can get a free copy of Gears of War 4 on the PC? Gears of War 4 PC players should lock and load for this new surprise.
Microsoft’s Xbox Play Anywhere initiative can deliver certain games to both the Xbox One and a Windows 10 PC – at the same time. This means a single purchase can entitle players to free copies of certain games.
Gears of War 4 PC is included in any digital copy of Gears of War 4 provided it’s purchased via the Xbox Play Anywhere initiative. This means that hefty $59.99 purchase is actually worth the while.
Getting the free copy
Gears of War 4 PC players can get the game easily. According to Polygon, first, players have to update their PCs to the Windows 10 Anniversary Edition released last August. This means either PCs have already been updated this way or they can manually do it themselves.
However, cautious players can type “Windows update” on the Start bar. They should click the “Check for updates” button. The rest will do itself.
Second, after accomplishing the update, players can proceed to the Windows app store and log-in. However, players have to log-in to their Microsoft account first. But, this has to be the same Microsoft account used to purchase the Xbox One version of Gears of War 4. Players can easily find their free Gears of War PC game once they do so.
Although players should know that the game has a hefty 80GB requirement. Regardless, with the game’s newest features, it may be worth the wait.
Alien hunting revamped
While Gears of War 4 PC is not all that different than its Xbox One companion, the gameplay sure marks the spot. Players of FPS games would recommend playing the Gears of War 4 PC knowing its framerate options. It will also provide speedier and flashier battles, considering this is a team shooter.
However, perhaps the highlight of Gears of War 4 PC is on the revamped Horde mode and the introduction of Gear cards. Horde mode makes a return to the latest Gears game. This allows players to relish in a 50-wave explosion bonanza while facing wave after wave of enemies.
This allows them to experiment with the new character classes and earn skill “cards.” These Gear cards allow access to new skills and even skins to solidify the game experience.
Although, with news that Gears of War is even getting a new movie, it will surely get Gears of War 4 PC players hyped.
