Good news for PC gamers, as The Coalition reported that the preload of Gears of War 4 for Windows 10 is now available.
To begin, you should know that you need the latest update of Windows 10, we refer to the KB3194496 update, which was launched by the company last September 29. If you do not have this requirement, you could have problems to start the download.
Once you have your PC in order, you must go to the application of the Windows Store, search for Gears of War 4 and select the edition of the game you want to pre-order and, consequently, start preloading. The file, as reported by users, has a size of 73.33 GB, so we recommend you to get the game as soon as you can.
Also, Gears of War 4 can be automatically downloaded in the background, but this option takes longer, according to The Coalition.
This day, we learned that Microsoft will launch new bundles of Xbox One S with Gears of War 4.
