Microsoft and game developer, The Coalition, have released a new video for Gears of War 4, showing off the first 20 minutes of the newest game in the franchise.
This new video introduces the beginning of the game’s campaign, Prologue, revealing key moments never before seen in a Gears title. As the game begins, players drop straight into action at the beginning of the game, and immerses them into a series of pivotal moments, including Emergence Day and a battle from the Pendulum Wars.
Gears of War 4 takes place 25 years after the events of Gears of War 3, and follows JD Fenix and his friends, Kait and Del, on a mission to rescue their loved ones and discover the source of a new enemy. Fans can expect familiar gameplay, multiplayer and stunning visuals by Unreal Engine 4.
Earlier this week, community director Adam Fletcher hinted on Twitter that major spoilers may be coming in the next few days, and for Gears fans to “stay vigilant if you want to keep things pure.”
Gears of War 4 is scheduled to be released on October 11 for Xbox One and PC. Since it’s an Xbox Play Anywhere title, you’ll be able to buy it digitally on Xbox One and get a free copy of the game for Windows 10 PC. If you can’t wait, you can pay $100 for the Gears of War 4 Ultimate Edition, releasing October 7. The Ultimate Edition includes a Season Pass which contains exclusive Vintage VIP Pack, permanent access to 24 additional DLC maps and the Starter Airdrop, a collection of 17 assorted Gear Packs.
