It’s time to get excited. With only a couple weeks left until Gears of War 4 is released, Microsoft celebrated alongside The Coalition as the game was released to manufacturing ahead of it’s October 11th worldwide release. The event, referred to as “Going Gold,” marks the release of the gold master disc to Xbox replication facilities around the world.

Gears of War 4 is the first game in the franchise that will be available as part of the Xbox Play Anywhere program which will make it available simultaneously for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. What is even more exciting is the fact that Gears of War 4 also supports Cross Play across Xbox One and Windows 10 PC in all of the game’s modes, including Versus, campaign and the all-new Horde 3.0 survival mode.†  This is something that should make some folks pretty excited.
