The first game to be shown off at Microsoft’s E3 2016 press conference was Gears of War 4. The audience were treated to an impressive campaign trailer, showcasing the game’s graphics and dynamic storm systems. The section of the trailer saw JD Fenix, Kait and Del attempting to rescue Kait’s mother from the Swarm.
The trailer showcased the use of a buzz saw weapon and also showcased some of the deadly Swarm enemies, before ending with the reveal of a massive Swarm monster. Fans also got a tease of former main protagonist Marcus Fenix, who showed up sporting a pretty grisly beard.
Gears of War 4 is also seeing the return of the hugely popular Horde mode, in Horde 3.0, however no other details were given.
Gears of War 4 is being developed by The Coalition, under the watchful eye of Rod Fergusson, formerly of Epic Games. Gears of War 4 will release October 11th on Xbox One and Windows 10.
