Developer The Coalition and publisher Microsoft are taking some lessons from the Windows Insider Program by launching the Gears Feedback Program. It will allow fans to give their opinions on the upcoming Xbox One shooter Gears of Wars 4.

The details on the program were revealed in a post on the official Gears of War forums:

The Gears Feedback Program is an opt-in program that provides fans the opportunity to provide their feedback directly to The Coalition. The goal of the program is to get better insights from our players, and factor the feedback we receive into the development of our games.

By signing up, you'll occasionally receive emails asking about your gaming habits and your unique perspective on Gears of War. In most cases, it'll be a short survey, but we may ask you to take part in Skype interviews or live playtests. Every request you receive is optional - if you don't want to answer a particular survey or feedback request, that's totally fine!

You can learn more about the Gears Feedback Program, and also sign up to join it, at the link below. The Coalition and Microsoft also plan to begin a beta test of Gears of War 4 starting on April 18. The game itself will be released on October 11.
