Gears of War 4 is now free to try through June 15

If you have yet to give Gears of War 4 a go, now is your chance. Microsoft has kicked off a free trial period for the latest entry in the main Gears series, running from June 9 through June 15.

During the trial period, Gears of War 4 is completely free to try for up to 10 hours of gameplay. The only caveat to be aware of has to do with the campaign, where only the first chapter will be available to play. Still, that's just enough to give you a pretty good taste of what to expect from the rest of the game.

Aside from the first chapter of the campaign, you can use the 10-hour trial to check out as much multiplayer as you like. That also includes all of the new content included in the recent "Rise of the Horde" update, and new players will get bonuses as they level, including weapon skins and horde skills. Everything you earn in the trial will also carry over if you buy the game.

If you're down to give Gears of War 4 a shot, you can download the game and give it a shot on your Xbox One now.
