Gears of War 4: Gears of War 4 Prologue shows twenty minutes of new gameplay footage

Microsoft and game developer, The Coalition, 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.

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.

“With Gears of War 4, I’m very proud of what the team at The Coalition has achieved. Not only is it the most technically ambitious Gears game yet – with split-screen play on both Xbox and Windows 10, Xbox Play Anywhere support, Cross Play across all co-op modes, and available 4K graphics – it’s a return to the grounded, tense and brutal tone that made so many falls in love with this universe, story and characters for the first time.”
