Gears of War 4, the latest in Microsoft and The Coalition’s premier third person shooter series has been officially announced for inclusion on the Xbox Games Pass service, alongside several other titles such as Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, This War of Mine: The Little Ones, and Mega Man 10.
The addition was heavily foreshadowed last week in a video by Major Nelson covering what was available on the Xbox Games Pass service, a Netflix style option similar to the competition’s PlayStation Now, but allowing users to download the titles. In the video, the Gears of War series logo, the Crimson Omen, made four appearances. Turns out that the Omen’s foretold the addition of the most recent entry in the series, and one of Microsoft’s showpieces for the Xbox One X.
Gears of War 4 joins many other titles from Xbox One and Xbox 360 such as Halo 5: Guardians for unlimited download for $9.99 a month. The other Gears of War titles are already available to play on the service, including your choice of Gears of War 1 in both original Xbox 360 and Xbox One remaster variants.
