Microsoft has quietly opened registrations for the closed iOS beta of Gears Pop! On iOS , its new mobile game that will blend together the Gears of War franchise and Funko Pop bobbleheads. Microsoft recently announced the closed iOS beta on its Xbox Insider Hub on Windows 10, where the company is asking users to complete a dedicated survey.

You’ll need to indicate your Apple ID to get the chance to be selected for the closed beta, and Microsoft didn’t say when the first batch of invites will be sent to users.

Gears Pop! was first announced at E3 2018 along Gears 5 and Gears Tactics, the latter being a new turn-based strategy game for Windows 10 PCs. We don’t have much information about the game itself, except from what we’ve seen in the first trailer last year. Gears Pop! is expected to ship later this year on iOS and Android devices.

To be clear, anyone with an iOS device and an Apple ID can sign up for the beta after downloading the Xbox Insider Hub app on Windows 10. If you’re running Windows 10 version 1809, you can also use the Xbox Insider Hub to try out the brand new Windows 10 Game Bar with Spotify integration and several new customization options.
