New Gears of War 4 trailer connects the legacy of the Fenix family.
Developed by The Coalition, Gears of War 4 is the first installment of a new series of games that pick up 25 years after the conclusion of Gears of War 3.
The Tomorrow trailer introduces JD Fenix – the son of Marcus Fenix, star of the original trilogy of games. It also does a Mad World by featuring Disturbed’s cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s The Sound of Silence. Despite being a tonal retread, it’s pretty effective.
The trailer also serves as a reminder that, beginning on 18 April, players of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition will start receiving tokens for early access to the Gears of War 4 beta. Following the conclusion of early access on April 24, all qualifying Xbox Live Gold members will be invited to join the beta until it ends on May 1.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
