Microsoft released Gears of War 4 official launch trailer today. The game will be available October 11th, 2016; but Microsoft it’s giving us a glimpse of what’s coming. The video is actually titled “gameplay launch trailer” suggesting a cinematic trailer may come later.
The gameplay launch trailer sets up some of the story, showing off the new cast of characters, JD Fenix, Kait, and Del, who fight alongside original hero Marcus Fenix in some sequences. Also highlighted here are some new enemy-types and vehicles. Lissie’s cover of Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters” is heard behind the action.
Gears of War 4 launches on October 11 for Xbox One and PC, though if you buy the $100 edition, you can play four days early, starting on October 7. The game is part of the Xbox Play Anywhere program, so if you buy it digitally on Xbox One, you get a free digital copy of the PC version for free and vice versa. Some images of the game can be seen below.
