There’s plenty more to come from Gears of War 4 in 2017! Halloween is just around the corner with new characters to collect, new weapon skins to earn and some spooky-themed events!
Following that, we’ll be leading into our month-long celebration of the 11th Anniversary of Gears of War! November is going to be jam-packed with things to do and new things to collect all in the midst of our launch on Xbox One X and we can’t wait to share more.
October Update Heads Up
We have a few tips to share for those of you ready to jump in to our October Update.
Our October Update makes further optimizations to the storage it requires on your hard drive for both Xbox One and Windows 10. Expect a bigger download, but even with the new content delivered in this Update, your overall file size for Gears 4 will be smaller than it is today.
The October Update also requires the latest Xbox One Console Update. To download this Update in advance of the Gears of War 4 October Update, head to Settings -> Updates to manually update your console.
Planning on picking up an Xbox One X? You can pre-download our Xbox One X Enhanced content before you own your console by going to System -> Download 4K Game Content. Once this Update releases, you’ll be able to manually download the content for easy transfer (via external HDD or local network) once your console joins your Xbox family.
Don’t forget that only the Xbox One X has the power to take advantage of our Enhanced content, so please do not toggle this option if you’re not planning to upgrade. You’ll just be taking up storage space!
Have a great weekend Gears fans – we’ll see you on Monday to battle it out on Lift Apex and Fuel Depot!
