Gears of War 4 Campaign Looks Amazing, Return of Marcus Fenix Teased

Thanks to Microsoft’s E3 2016 press conference, we were shown a lengthy demonstration of the campaign mode of Gears of War 4. The game looks marvelous, footage showcasing wind effects rendered in real-time, a couple of new weapons, and plenty of combat.

The Coalition revealed that Gears of War 4 will be bringing back the Horde mode from Gears of War 2, a game type where a team of players have to withstand never ending waves of enemies. The developer also stated that the new installment in the series has a greater focus on multiplayer as compared to its other titles.

Gears of War 4 is part of Microsoft’s new Xbox Play Anywhere initiative, where gamers have to simply purchase a game once to be able to play it on both Xbox One and PC. In this regard, every cooperative mode in the game will support cross-play in every way, confirmed The Coalition. Note that regardless of what platform you play Gears of War 4 on, the game will keep track of your progress and achievements, sharing statistics between both systems.

Gears of War 4 is the first game in the series from The Coalition, also debuting JD Fenix, son of our previous protagonist Marcus Fenix. Incidentally, the on-stage demonstrage teased Marcus’ return in some way. We’ll see if the aged hero will get a mission of his own in the game.

Gears of War 4 is scheduled to launch simultaneously on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC on October 11. The release will be accompanied by a special Xbox Elite controller, customized with the bloody Gears of War theme.
