Gears Of War 4 community just became a little bit more lit! The Coalition announced today that they’ve implemented cross-play between the Xbox One & PC in their social playlist. A few months back they conducted a cross-play weekend & through the data they gathered they decided to keep things friendly between Xbox One & PC.
The only catch is this cross-play session is just another test. They have plans to make it permanent, but they want to run some more tests for next few months. The Coalition said
“This step is planned to be a permanent move for the future of Social Quickplay, with the first few months being a ‘trial period’ in order to monitor player feedback alongside data to ensure the Test Weekend was representative”
Core & competitive modes will remain independent. So cross-play will only be for the casual game mode. This is a W. Anything they can do to improve the games community will increase the longevity of the game. Hats off to The Coalition. Feel free to check TBH’s Gears Of War 4 review.
