Due for release on October 11th, we found out at E3 that Gears Of War 4 will be launching on both Xbox One and Windows 10 as part of Microsoft’s “Play Anywhere” strategy. One cool little bonus that wasn’t brought up, however, was the extra content fans can expect when they purchase the sequel later this year.
The Coalition’s studio head, Rod Fergusson, confirmed that anyone buying the game will gain access to the entire series, completely free of charge.
Didn’t really talk about yesterday – for a limited time you get all previous Xbox 360 Gears games free when you buy Gears 4.

It’s a fantastic offer for Xbox fans, though we’ve yet to hear any confirmation as to how this will work. Chances are, buyers will receive codes to unlock the games via Xbox One’s backwards compatibility scheme. It’s feels a little too soon for Microsoft to be giving away its recent Gears Of War: Ultimate Edition, though fans can always keep their fingers crossed.
