Social Quickplay in Gears of War 4 sees controller meet mouse and keyboard in Gears of War 4’s post-apocalyptic playgrounds.
Microsoft recently held a beta for the feature, in which there were over 750,000 matches played, with over 115,000 participants.
According to the announcement post, both platforms had similar K/D ration results, scores, and kills, based on the data gathered. Match quality was also perfect for most, so they’ve decided to roll it out.
You can now select Social Quickplay from the Cross-Play playlist, but it might be a bit shaky the first couple of weeks while Microsoft track the stats when far more players are stressing it.
Core and Competitive will remain platform independent, only matching Xbox players with each other and Windows 10 players with each other.
