E3 2016: Gears of War 4 will be Cross Play and Cross Buy, New Trailer

Gears of War 4 is undoubtedly a huge pillar in the future of Xbox One so it makes sense that Microsoft would start their E3 press conference with the visceral franchise. A new gameplay video was shown off at the top of the show along with some very exciting announcements.

First off, Gears of War 4 will launch day and date for Xbox One and Windows 10. If that’s not enough to wet your whistle then imagine yourself buying it for one console and automatically receiving it for the other platform. Again, buy the game once and it won’t cost you anything to also play on the other platform. This initiative is something new from the Xbox team called Xbox Play Anywhere and is also featured with many other recently announced Xbox games.

Lastly, Gears of War 4 will feature crossplay between Xbox One and Windows 10 for all co-op modes.

Join the horde in Gears of War 4 on October 11, 2016 for Xbox One and Windows 10.
