The trailer for Gears of War was recently launched and the clip shows off some new action sequences and a couple of surprises. This release means that the countdown until October 11, the release date for Gears of War on the Xbox One and Windows 10, has officially started.
Gears of War 4 belongs to Xbox Play Anywhere, which means that you can either play it on your Windows 10 PC or on the Xbox One console, taking with you the Achievements, progress and Gamerscore saved on Xbox Live. You can even play with others on a different platform in the co-op mode “Never Fight Alone”. This is great because it doesn’t limit your options anymore when it comes to choosing a friend to play together.
All in all, the clip promises a very interesting game filled with adventure, suspense and special effects. Moreover, it seems that the developers have prepared other surprises for the fans too, some of which are not shown in the trailer.
The trailer follows the story of JD. He is trying to fight and survive a new threat that appeared, called the Swarm, together with his friends Kait and Del. JD is the son of Marcus Fenix, the character who, 25 years before, fought together with the Delta Squad and managed to make Sera a safe place for the upcoming generations. Apparently, his son inherited his courage and spirit of adventure, since after living in peace for so many years, he is ready to fight against the new threat.
The new trailer is narrated by John DiMaggio, the voice actor for series mainstay Marcus Fenix. The cover used for the clip is “Nothing Else Matters” from Metallica, performed by Lissie.
