Xbox One S Gears of War 4 Limited Edition will see an earlier launch on Oct. 6

If you have your eyes set on the Xbox One S Gears of War 4 Limited Edition bundle, it looks like you'll be able to get your hands on the console a day earlier than originally expected. Initially set for an October 7 launch — coinciding with the early access date for Gears of War 4 Ultimate Edition buyers — the console will instead now launch on October 6.

Xbox's Aaron Greenberg spilled the news on Twitter:

To recap, the Gears of War 4 bundle packs an Xbox One S decked out in red design inspired by its namesake. The console runs $449, but includes a copy of Gears of War 4, all of the Xbox 360 Gears games, the Gears of War 4 Season Pass and some exclusive in-game items. In addition, those who pick up the console will get to play the game ahead of its official October 11 release.

  • I don't yet have a 4K TV, but this... this I must have... i have to say out of all of the other Xbox 360 model the gear was always my fav... and this two shall come to be... The white one is really nice too though :)
  • Is there anyway you can download the free games without a credit card? I buy the xbl cards so that I don't have to use a credit card.
  • Iink if you have enough credit on your accout, from xbl cards, and preorder the game, you will get the free backwards compatible games too.
  • It won't let me download any of the free games without a credit card even though I have a gold account.
  • I don't know, but may I suggest a prepaid credit card. I never tried it myself, but I currently have a cancelled credit card and can add games without issue.
  • I love the design very much.
  • This design is awesome.
  • I wonder if this means the other, standalone limited edition Fenix controller will be released early to pre-orders as well? 
  • I'm getting excited. I can't wait to for this to release. Bring it on!
