The embargo on next week's beta has been lifted so there's quite a bit of news.

Gears of War 4's Post-Launch Multiplayer Maps Will be Free… But There’s a Small Catch

All post-launch multiplayer maps for Gears of War 4 will be playable for free, The Coalition's Studio Head, Rod Fergusson, told us when we went to sample the upcoming beta in London recently. But there’s a catch.

Gears of War 4 will launch with 10 maps (9 new maps and a fresh version of the classic Gridlock) with further downloadable maps coming for at least a year after launch. Everyone will be able to play on these post-launch maps for free, in the regular playlists. It means that Gears of War 4’s player base will never become splintered due to the developer’s DLC plans.

The catch is that if you want to play private matches with friends on these new maps, you’re going to have to buy them. Which seems fair enough. However, only one person in your party has to own the DLC for the rest of you to get in on the action. Nice, right?

Gears of War 4’s main playlists will consist of around 10 maps, with new maps coming in and replacing older ones on a monthly basis to keep things fresh. The Coalition reckons there'll be 24 post-launch maps coming for free in the first year.

Overall, it’s an interesting DLC plan by The Coalition, one we can certainly get behind and one that should absolutely please gamers.

Also,

Gears of War 4 Will Have A Bots-Only Playlist

Gears of War has always been a franchise that has looked to ease new players into multiplayer. Gears of War 3 multiplayer had a Casual setting to make the leaning curve a little less steep and it seems like Gears of War 4 is going one step further.

Rod Fergusson, The Coalition’s Studio Head, told us of these plans in London at a recent beta preview event, saying that Gears of War 4 will feature a bots only playlist designed specifically to ease players into the action and provide a taster of what to expect against human opponents.

The human players vs. AI playlist will offer XP rewards on the same level as regular matchmaking, and players can choose the difficulty level of the AI opponents. So not only will you be learning, you’ll be ranking up too. Fergusson said that the bots will be highly skilled and display different personalities.

Gears of War 4 is scheduled for an October 11th 2016 launch with the beta coming April 18th to Gears of War: Ultimate Edition owners and April 25th to everyone else.

Enjoying the beta so far, the dropshot it brilliant, especially the headshots  :) the maps are a bit too big for 5 on 5 but I think they'll work great for Horde, which still hasn't been confirmed as returning yet.

It seems to be a little to heavy on the shotgun at the moment, Maybe just the way people are playing it, Looking great though.

Definitely shotgun heavy, it's a bit overpowered too so anyone who is half decent with it can get loads of kills, top shotty players pretty much destroy everyone.

Yeah, Hopefully it's balanced out a bit more before it's released. I like the new Dodgeball mode.

I'm hoping they announce some campaign DLC for the season pass as £40/$50 is far too much for maps that are already free in social/ranked matches and some weapon/character skins, probably still get it though.   :)

Yeah, not big on the whole skins thing as paid DLC - campaigns is where it's at as far as DLC, IMO.
