Gears of War 4 is set to freshen the series up with a brand new cast of characters, and you’ll be able to join their fight on October 11th, which is the newly announced global release date for the Xbox One game.

Before then, those who have played Gears of War: Ultimate Edition will be given access to the multiplayer beta on April 18th. Don’t fret if you haven’t played Gear of War: Ultimate Edition though, as the beta will also be opened up for all Xbox Live Gold members from April 25th.

The story of Gears of War 4 takes place 25 years after the end of Gears of War 3 and follows three brand new characters, including JD Fenix, who is the son of Marcus Fenix from the original trilogy.
