"We need as many of you to participate as possible to make this a truly effective test."

In a post on the official forums today, The Coalition announced plans to test PC/Xbox One competitive multiplayer cross-play for Gears of War 4.

The test will kick off Friday, December 2, and will run through Monday, December 5, in an effort to "to evaluate the potential of a more permanent Crossplay solution in the future to allow Windows 10 and Xbox One gamers to play together in Versus outside of Private Matches."

"We care deeply about players on both platforms and we've heard you, so our goal is to use this event to bring in a ton of data and listen to feedback from players on both platforms to examine the results," the post reads. "What comes next after this hasn't been decided - this weekend is an incredibly important first step in this process. Once we use the combination of our data and your feedback together, we'll be able to make an informed next step (or not as the case may be). The key thing we want to stress is that we won't be making any surprise changes all of a sudden based on this weekend."

"We need as many of you to participate as possible to make this a truly effective test."

The test will focus on Team Deathmatch, Dodgeball, and King of the Hill modes, with all of the game's multiplayer maps available with a max squad size of five.

Additionally, anyone who participates will see an increased bonus - 1500 for wins and 750 for losses.
