The Gears of War 4 pre-load is now available, and it comes with the day one patch. That way, come release, you’re all good to go.
Specifically, the PC pre-load is now live, as the Xbox One has been up for a few days. The PC pre-load is different though, as Microsoft suggests that you update your Windows 10 in order to fix the download issues that it has been having.
You’re going to want to download the pre-load now, if you want to get to playing quickly on release day, as the download comes in at a whopping 73.3GB.
The pre-load does come with the day one patch, however, so you won’t have to worry about downloading that on release.
Early access for Gears of War 4 starts on October 7th, and the game officially launches on October 11th for Windows 10 PC and Xbox One.
