Gears of War 4 will launch worldwide October 11.
Originally posted over at Xbox Wire on the official Xbox website by Adam Fletcher, Director of Community from the Coalition, Gears of War 4 will feature new protagonists named JD Fenix and hopes to capture some of the magic from the original series.
Fletcher goes on to say in the post “Gears of War 4 marks the beginning of an epic new saga for one of the gaming’s most celebrated franchises, as a new band of heroes rises to confront a fearsome new threat. Harkening back to the dark and intense roots of the original classic, fans can expect a familiar, yet the distinct evolution of gameplay, including brutal and intimate action, a heart-pounding campaign, genre-defining multiplayer and stunning visuals powered by Unreal Engine 4.”
Luckily fans won’t have to wait long for some at the taste of the action, as the beta will be available to everyone who played Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on the Xbox One, April 18. The beta will then be opened to everyone with a Xbox Live Gold membership, on April 25.
Gears of War 4 was announced during Microsoft’s keynote address at last year’s E3. It is the fifth installment in the franchise and the first not to be developed by creators Epic Games.
