Gears of War 4 open beta download unavailable

By Alan Ng - Apr 26, 2016

While we can see that many are currently enjoying the Gears of War 4 open beta download on Xbox One, others are complaining that the Gears of War 4 open beta is unavailable to them and not working.

As far as we’re aware, some players managed to download the Gears of War 4 beta at a massive 7GB around 12 hours ago. However, some of you may be seeing the following screen instead which doesn’t let you download the file.


We’re not sure what the problem is as given it is an open beta, it should be available to all with no code needed to get in.

The Gears of War 4 beta end time is May 1, so hopefully Microsoft are aware of this situation and plan to fix it on Tuesday so that everyone can enjoy.

We’ll provide updates on this here, but just to see how widespread it is leave a comment below if the beta is also unavailable to you right now.

    I know that on Xbox One, you have to have played GOW: Ultimate Edition to be eligible for the GOW4 Open Beta download. Anyone else?

      That was to get in last week. This week is open to everyone, regardless if you have played the ultimate edition or not.
