The latest trailer for Gears of War 4 is here. The latest Xbox One exclusive – which is set to launch on October 11 2016 – marks the beginning of an epic new saga for the franchise, as a new band of heroes rises to confront a fearsome new threat.
Harkening back to the dark and intense roots of the original classic, Gears fans can expect – according to the developers – a familiar, yet distinct evolution of gameplay, including brutal and intimate action, a heart-pounding campaign, genre-defining multiplayer and visuals powered by Unreal Engine 4.
The trailer is set 25 years after Gears of War 3 and features JD Fenix who must embrace his father’s, Marcus Fenix, legacy and battle a terrifying new enemy.
For those looking to get some hands-on time with Gears of War 4 a little early… beginning on April 18, consumers who purchased the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on Xbox One or Windows 10 will be able to join the beta on Xbox One, which will expand to all Xbox Live Gold members on April 25, 2016.
