Microsoft has released a new trailer for Gears of War 4, the upcoming third-person shooter video game developed by The Coalition and fifth installment in the Gears of War series. The trailer features Marcus Fenix‘s son, JD Fenix, embracing his father’s legacy as he battles an all-new enemy threat. Gears of War 4 will be released for Xbox One on October 11th, 2016. It is currently available to pre-order on Amazon.
Gears of War 4 takes place 25 years after the Imulsion Countermeasure weapon destroyed both the Locust, Lambent and Imulsion. Unfortunately this also knocked out fossil fuels, forcing humanity to adapt new ways for survival. This also caused Windflares; powerful windstorms that form across the planet. Following the aftermath of the Lambent Epidemic, the reformed Coalition of Governments estimated that hundreds of thousands of humans are left on Sera. To prevent the population from declining, cities that are walled in were built to protect the citizens from the dangers outside.
