The multiplayer beta for Gears of War: Ultimate Edition has concluded, and to mark the occasion, The Coalition has shared an infographic running down some of the stats from the test.
Over the course of the eight-day beta, 786,415 unique players played just under 1.1 million total matches, adding up to 120 years’ worth of playtime. Curb stomps were more commonplace than kills with the Lancer’s chainsaw, but not by much–there were 1.725 million curb stomps to 1.645 million chainsaw kills. Frag tags, which I’ve always found to be among the most embarrassing and frustrating way to die in Gears, were performed 145,580 times.
With the beta concluded, you’re free to delete the game from your hard drive. Any rewards earned by playing, like weapon skins, will be saved so that they’re available when the full game launches on August 25.
The beta began last week, during E3, when Ultimate Edition was formally announced. Its existence was leaked earlier this year, and we’ve since learned it’s a 1080p/60fps version of the original Gears in development at The Coalition (formerly Black Tusk Studios) and Splash Damage. In addition to Xbox One, it’s set to come out on PC, but the newly announced Gears of War 4 is currently only confirmed for Xbox One.
