Microsoft will be promoting the upcoming sci-fi shooter Gears of War 4 with a brief art exhibition, "Gears Art", in Los Angeles from October 1-2. Some people who attend the event might also be able to get an invite to Microsoft's big "Gears of War 4: Live" launch event for the game on October 5.

Xbox Wire has the first details on the event:

The opening night event will be held Saturday, October 1 from 7-10 PM at Nucleus Gallery in the Los Angeles area and will include door prizes, raffle prizes, and the opportunity to attend* the "Gears of War 4: Live" launch event. The exhibition will remain open for viewing through Sunday, October 2nd.

The first 200 entrants to the 'Gears Art' opening night event will receive invitations* to attend the 'Gears of War 4: Live' launch event, a live-stream celebration on October 5th from Burbank, CA featuring creators, cast and top Gears eSports players to be streamed worldwide. Attendees of 'Gears of War 4: Live' will also be among the first to play the game before the game is released via early access on October 7.

The exhibit will include a lot of concept art from Gears of War 4, many of which have never been seen by the public. Tony Moore, the comic book artist best known for his work on The Walking Dead, will also be showing off some exclusive artwork he has created to promote the game, including a new piece that will make its debut at the exhibit. The Gears of War 4 soundrack, composed by Games of Thrones' Ramin Djawadi, will also make its public debut at the art exhibit.

Gears of War 4 will be released for the Xbox One and Windows 10 for people who buy the Ultimate Edition on October 7, and for everyone else on October 11
