Gears of War 4 Players Want Insane Difficulty Unlocked Right Off The Bat
Most of them, anyway.
Rod Fergusson, the head of The Coalition, who are currently hard at work on the upcoming Gears of War 4, recently held a Twitter poll- would players want Insane difficulty unlocked in the new game right away? And it seems as though most Gears players don’t want to have to wait- 63% of the 6,417 votes wanted it to be unlocked right away, with 37% saying they wanted to earn it.
Traditionally, Insane difficulty must be unlocked, so if it is available in the new game right off the bat, it would be a departure from the norm. However, the industry as a whole seems to be moving away from unlockable difficulties, instead opting to give players the chance to mold their experience upfront- so The Coalition would be keeping with trends if they did do this.
Gears of War 4 is due out exclusively on the Xbox One in October this year. No version for Windows 10 PCs has been announced yet.
