With just a couple of short weeks until developer The Coalition’s Gears of War 4 hits store shelves, a new 20 minute gameplay video has been released online. We’ve seen some gameplay demos in the past, but in this new video the opening prologue level is played through.
The prologue is set two years before Emergence Day, or E-Day, the massive planet-wide attack on the major cities of the planet Sera committed by the Locust Horde. The original Gears of War was set 14 years after E-Day happened.
You can watch the opening level of Gears of War 4 below.
The demo is also available to watch in shiny super duper high-def 4K for you gamers who like things running at a maximum. In addition to the 4K gameplay demo, the PC specs for the game have also been revealed. You can see the gameplay demo and PC specs below.
We’ve already known that the legend himself, Marcus Fenix (voiced by Futurama star John DiMaggio), would be part of the story in Gears of War 4. Marcus was the main character of the original Gears trilogy.
His son JD Fenix (Spartacus star Liam McIntyre) is the main character this time around, but in a new Gears 4 gameplay demo we see old Marcus is back in the fight. You can read more about the game and see the video below.
Fans of the Gears of War franchise were treated to a new gameplay demo for Gears of War 4, which was first revealed at last year’s E3.
That first gameplay demo was nice and all, but this new one definitely takes things to another level, with more of the enemies you’ll be facing off against, some of the weapons you’ll be using to dispatch them with (including some brutal melee finishers, as fans would expect), and the terrifying world all of this is happening in.
You can check out the new Gears 4 gameplay demo below!
We haven’t heard a whole lot about Gears of War 4. We saw that gameplay demo come out of E3 last year, but nothing much since then. But the game is coming, and soon enough where a beta for the game’s multiplayer is being held in the near future.
The beta will first be open early to those who have played Gears of War: Ultimate Edition. After that, an open beta for all who want to give it a try will start. You can get full details on when the beta is happening below.
