PC vs Console: Competitive Crossplay for Gears of War 4 This Weekend

A chance to get split in half by random people in comfy bean bag chairs, oh and to conquer your console foes!

In an attempt to bring peace and share some good will this season, Gears of War 4 is seeking to quieten the age old PC vs console debate. To do that Coalition is testing cross-platform competitive multiplayer this weekend, starting from Friday December 2, and ending on Monday December 5.

If your interested? These are the playlist details:

  • Playlist Type: Social
  • Modes: Team Deathmatch, Dodgeball, King of the Hill
  • Maps: All (including Checkout and Dry Dock)
  • Win XP: 1500 (up from 600)
  • Loss XP: 750 (up from 100)
  • Maximum Squad Size: 5

As well as the cross-platform play happening this weekend, there will also be another bonus in the form of increased win/loss XP for match completion -- to give further incentive to play online this weekend.

If this cross-platform public trial run goes well, we might just see this happen with more competitive shooters.

So what games do you think would benefit from cross-play? Are we moving into an age where Xbox and Playstation owners can fight side by side? Let me know in the comments down bellow.
