If you were thinking about snagging a digital copy of Gears of War 4 to begin pre-loading before tonight’s launch, a deal popped up at the Microsoft Store worth checking out. Now if you pre-order before tonight’s launch get a $10 gift card to Microsoft. What’s unique about this deal is it’s not a physical version of the game, but one of the first incentives to buy a digital code for an Xbox One pre-order.
- Gears of War 4 + $10 Gift Code (Xbox One Download) — $59.99 at the Microsoft Store.
Since Gears of War 4 is part of the Xbox Play Anywhere program, this same code will get you started on either the Xbox One or on your Windows 10 PC. Yep, Gears of War 4 is one of the first games to participate in the new Xbox/Windows 10 cross play program, all tied to your Microsoft/Xbox account.
The deal is set to end once Gears of War 4 release tonight. That said, if you are a few hours late to the party, it’s still worth checking to see if the deal is still valid, as Microsoft tends to keep the offering going a few hours after its official launch time.
The gift card bonus at Microsoft is actually more like a gift code that arrives via email. It can be used to buy anything at the Micrsoft Store, which includes a wide variety of games and PC/tablet equipment.
