Gears of War has one of the best cover mechanics of any 1st person game. Now in its 4th edition, Gears of War 4 is now available for pre-order directly from the Xbox Store or from retailers. As a pre-order bonus, fans will receive an exclusive Vintage Del Gear Pack featuring a Vintage Del character model, emblem, two Vintage weapon skins and a special Vintage Del bounty.
The game is available both digitally (lets face it, its 2016, you want this version) and at retail. Gears of War 4: Ultimate Edition will cost you the handsome sum of A$139.95 RRP and the only way to join the action early when the game launches in October.

• Gears of War 4 Season Pass ($59.95 AUD value)
• A limited edition SteelBook

Today we also get detail on what’s included in the exclusive Vintage VIP Pack featuring Vintage JD and two Vintage weapon skins, permanent access to 24 additional DLC maps (two per month for a year) for private play on dedicated servers, an exclusive Developer Playlist that grants access to new maps, modes, and features that can be tested prior to broad release and six Gear Packs (which unlock character and weapon skins, emblems, equipment and boosts).
If you’re just after the raw Gears of War 4 experience, the standard edition will cost you A$99.99 (JB HiFi has it for $89) and launches Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2016 worldwide. Thanks to the wonders of international timezones, this should mean Aussies are among the first in the world to get into the action in GOW4.
