If you’re looking forward to the next Gears of War game, you may want to check this piece of news out.

Developer The Coalition will be launching a “Versus Multiplayer” tech test which will begin on 19 July. The test will give players access to the Arcade (a new Versus mode), Escalation, and King of the Hill game modes on two new multiplayer maps. Also added for this test is a new Bootcamp training mode and a “mini Tour of Duty” that allows players to unlock exclusive Tester Weapon Skins for use in the full game.

The studio said that this technical test allows them to stress test the servers over two focused Test Periods so that the game offers the best possible experience when large volumes of players rush in at launch. To be frank, the game will still break at launch but at least the downtime and damage won’t be severe.
