Gears of War 4 beta users experiencing “game breaking” glitch

Gears of War 4 beta users are reporting a “game breaking”– or experience breaking–glitch in the beta.

Apparently, a number of textures are constantly fading in and out making all opposing players in the beta “undetectable” during combat.

“Sometimes when I log on for the first time in a couple hours I get this visual bug, where everything goes invisible and then visible again in 1 or 2 seconds and just rotates, it makes the game impossible to play,” said /r/Gears of War user Kayle98.

Since it is indeed a beta, The Coalition won’t be able to give much support or even patch the issue.

However, one of the /r/Gears of War community members told Kayle98 “just quit the game and start it up again” because that had worked for him. But, sadly, it didn’t for Kayle98: “Yeah I tried that but it didn’t work I’ll just play tomorrow or something. Thanks anyway.”
