A fairly big surprise to open up the Xbox E3 press conference: Gears of War 4 will be heading to PC. Or, well, Windows 10.
The title is part of Microsoft’s “Play Anywhere” thing, where buying the game nets you a copy on both Xbox One and Windows 10. It’ll have full cross-platform play between the two systems, at least in terms of co-op: the co-op campaign, co-op multiplayer, and Horde mode will all be playable between the two systems. All of your unlocks and achievements and so on will also carry over between the two.
Gears of War 4 is due out on 11 October. Co-op gameplay was displayed at the conference, but right now at least, there’s no gameplay footage from E3 2016 online.

When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
