If you were watching TV or online at one point in the day yesterday afternoon or evening, you more than likely caught the dramatic new Gears of War 4 trailer. The game isn't scheduled to launch for the Xbox One until October 11th, but at least we now have an idea of what to expect in terms of tone and timeline.
JD Fenix, the son of Marcus Fenix, and he just so happens to be ready to save the world just as his father did 25 years ago. So the trailer digs into his backstory and motivation on a high level.
Check out the trailer below if you haven't already, it's definitely worth it.
Gears of War 4 – Tomorrow:
On Oct. 11, a new generation of heroes will rise and confront an ominous new threat in Gears of War 4, the first chapter of a brand-new saga developed by The Coalition.
Today, we’re excited to debut our first story trailer, “Tomorrow,” which connects the legacy of the Fenix family from father to son and features a foreboding glimpse of the new menace that awaits.
At the conclusion of Gears of War 3, Marcus Fenix wondered what tomorrow would bring. What a world without war would look like. This is the story of two tomorrows – the one Marcus envisioned, and the one 25 years later, where all hope is shattered as a new nightmare is reborn.
“Tomorrow” features Disturbed’s haunting cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence,” and offers a hint of how Gears of War 4 brings the franchise back to the dark, mysterious and intense tone of the original classic.
