If you’re pre-loading Gears of War 4, you won’t have to download anything on launch day.


Now that the pre-load for Gears of War 4 is available to both Xbox One and PC players, some are beginning to wonder if there’s a patch in works to be released on launch day.

Many games drop a patch at the very last minute – launch day, as developers are usually hard at work on content right up until the official release date. For Gears of War 4, this won’t be the case.

Rod Fergusson, studio head at Gears of War 4 developer The Coalition confirmed on Twitter earlier that the day one patch content is part of the pre-load.

Early access for Gears of War 4 begins October 7. The game officially releases October 11 on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC.
