This morning a new Gameplay trailer was released online for Gears of War 4. We got a look at some story beats, a grizzled Marcus Phoenix back in the action, and…are those giant fucking mechs?! Yes, yes they are.
The story seems to be doing its best to invoke nostalgia for fans of the series. With heavy aspects of family bonds, son and daughter relationships and twenty-five years of peace in the Gears universe. You can check out the new trailer above along with Microsofts press release below. Gears of War 4 drops for Windows 10 and Xbox One on October 11th.
