Gears of War 4 is nearly here, but you can get a taste early tonight on Beam!

Daniel Rubino, Zac Bowden and I (Jez Corden) will be streaming Gears of War 4's Horde mode tonight on Beam at 9 PM BST / 4 PM EST. We'll also be giving away an entire set of the Xbox backward compatible Gears of War saga (Gears of War 1, 2, 3 and Judgement), and revealing our next big Gears of War giveaway set to start this Friday.
