Gears of War 4: Windows 10 and Xbox One Online Players Shall Meet

38

Last December Microsoft experimented with something it hadn’t done in for quite some time: antagonistic cross-platform multiplayer. For a solitary end of the week, there was a test between people playing against each other in Gears of War 4 on PC and Xbox One. Presently, that is moving from a beta to an official discharge. Gears of War 4’s Core and Competitive will remain stage autonomous, as it will guarantee Ranked encounters are as firmly coordinated and focused as it could be allowed.

“Late last year, we conducted a cross-play Test Weekend to bring our Windows 10 and Xbox One fans together in public Versus Multiplayer, combining fan feedback and extensive data gathering to help us decide the next steps to take to deliver a matchmaking cross-play Versus experience.

As such, beginning today, Social Quickplay will now be a Cross-play playlist!This step is planned to be a permanent move for the future of Social Quickplay, with the first few months being a ‘trial period’ in order to monitor player feedback alongside data to ensure the Test Weekend was representative.

Core and Competitive will remain platform independent, only matching Xbox players with each other and Windows 10 players with each other. Despite the closely matched performance between users on both platforms seen in our cross-play Test Weekend, we always want to ensure our Ranked experiences are as closely matched and competitive as possible. Due to the major popularity of Social Quickplay on Windows 10, we will be looking at introducing new Core and Competitive solutions for Windows 10 players in the future to provide more focused offerings to experience the more competitive ranked play of Gears of War 4.” – Windows 10’s official blog

The war between Windows 10 and Xbox players can now be legally conducted!
