Gears of War 4 was unveiled at Microsoft's E3 press event today, with a live gameplay demo:



The demo features two brand new characters and a completely new class of enemy seemingly unrelated to the original trilogy's Locust Horde. It also seems to be going back to the franchise's horror roots from the first game, which could be part of the reason it is being remastered.

Gears 4 will be coming late 2016.

Two things!

 

1: FUCK YES

 

2: I am so fucking happy Marcus, Dom, Baird, and Cole were not in that. The one thing this series needs is a new set of characters. The old ones have had their arc, and it ended pretty damn well. To go back to them cheapens that. I've said this before, and it's pissed stupid people off who don't understand storytelling, but fucking hell I'm so happy to not see Marcus.

 

Looks great.

I agree. I've always said Gears 3 fully closed the book on the Delta Squad/Locust story. Doing either again would just be so unnecessary and negate the whole trilogy story ark.

I am wondering though how this new enemy folds in. Gears has always been restricted to one planet, so it's not like Halo where they can just find another group of baddies out there in space.

Super stoked for this. Loved the reveal, love that it's new characters. The gameplay demo was enough to pique my interest for specualtion. It also looks like they're going back to the Gears of War 1 roots in the aesthetic of the game, such as the atmosphere, dark themes, scary corridors. Though, this could just be the demo of that part in the game, BUT AWWWWH MAYYYYYYN DA HYPE IS REAL!

Another trailer with a good song and a tone that won't be present in the actual game?

Shit, where's Chad Warden when you need him? :(
