    At E3 2015 during the Xbox press conference, Black Tusk's upcoming Gears of War 4 was officially announced. We know that Gears of War was going to be at E3, but it was nice to see an actual demo that showcased some of the action. We saw two new characters with a fast-paced chase, massive buildings being destroyed, shredding through gates, and a terrifying encounter with some new enemies. The environment was covered by a bunch of corruption, which could be Imulsion.


    The game will be headed exclusively to the Xbox One around holiday 2016.

    Gears of War 4 - Beta Expected Spring 2016.

    Microsoft slipped in their landing page for the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition that the beta for Gears of War 4 will start in spring 2016. Naturally, this will be an Xbox One exclusive. Those who purchase the Gears of War Xbox One bundle in August (Gears of War-themed Xbox One that includes Gears of War: Ultimate Edition) will be given early access to the beta as long as they play the Ultimate Edition by March 1, 2016.

    There is no other information on the beta other than the expected release window.

    Gears of War 4 - Returning to More 'Intimate' 2-Player Horror.

    The E3 reveal of Gears of War 4 was meant to evoke the original Gears of War, and its lack of spectacular action was by design, according to The Coalition’s Rod Fergusson. Speaking to IGN about the teaser, Fergusson said:

    With Gears of War 4, Fergusson explained:

    Gears of War was a Monster game, and as the series advanced, by Gears of War 3 you’ve got a war game. The Locust is an enemy army you know how to defeat, Wretches aren’t scary anymore. He said:

    The story that conveys all this, as we saw from the first trailer, focuses on younger soldiers — JD and Kait are not the battle-hardened war veterans Marcus Fenix was. He said:

    Gears of War 4 will innovate on the series, Fergusson promised, he admitted that The Coalition must show the respect for the franchise…. We have to do it right before we do it different…. We’re going to treat it properly. Then we can talk about greater innovations.

    Gears of War 4 - Monsters will scare you.

    The E3 2015 showing of Gears of War 4 was not the usual spectacle the series became known for. That’s because the game is a bit different from previous iterations. Gears of War 4 will be a more personal and intimate story, according to The Coalition’s Rod Fergusson. Fergusson told IGN:

    The upcoming sequel will bring back the horror and mystery side of Gears. It will be dark game, letting you once again fear things going bump in the night. The E3 2015 demo certainly showed that. To tie it all together, the game’s story also won’t retain the black and white nature of the previous games. He added:

    Whatever The Coalition is bringing to the table with 4 won’t retract from their desire to be respectful of the franchise. He said:

    Gears of War 4 is out in 2016 on Xbox One.

    Gears of War 4 - To be a graphical showcase on Xbox One.

    Gears of War 4 will be to Xbox One what the original was to Xbox 360, it terms of visual fidelity. When Microsoft first showed Gears of War 4 at E3 last year, it looked good. When it finally releases later this year, it will be one of the best looking games on Xbox One, according to studio head Rod Fergusson. Fergusson, who worked on all three mainline Xbox 360 games, told Official Xbox Magazine:

    Fergusson hinted at Gears of War 4 multiplayer running at 60 frames-per-second, but didn’t outright confirm it. He said:

    Gears of War 4 is due for a multiplayer beta this spring, with a full release in the fall.

    Gears of War 4 - Stars Marcus Fenix's son.

    Gears of War 4 is set 25 years after the events of Gears of War 3 and features three new playable characters, one of whom is Marcus Fenix's son. Microsoft snapped up the latest Game Informer cover reveal and the US magazine has first dibs on a raft of details.

    Marcus Fenix's son is called JD Fenix, and he's the primary protagonist of the game. He's described as an idealist who ran away from home to join the COG militia. JD goes AWOL after a classified incident you learn about as you play the game. JD Fenix is played by Liam McIntyre, who stars in TV show Spartacus.

    Other playable characters include Kait Diaz, played by Laura Bailey (Jaina Proudmoore in World of Warcraft), and Delmont "Del" Walker, an ex-COG soldier who became friends with JD at boarding school. Del is played by Eugene Byrd, who recently played Marcus "Boomer" Boone in Battlefield Hardline. Game Informer said Gears of War 4 developer The Coalition is trying to bring the series back to its darker, horror-themed roots. Two-player couch co-op is confirmed. There's a new close-cover melee system, too.
