With the release date confirmed and the beta rapidly inbound, the excitement for Gears of War 4
is becoming very real! Unfortunately for the game’s new main character, so are the nightmares as a new threat needs to be confronted in the the first chapter of a brand new saga.

Xbox has released a new trailer showcasing some juicy Gears visuals. Marcus Fenix, the main man from the first three Gears titles, can be seen with his family that includes his girlfriend/wife
and his son. The trailer switches from what looks like a peaceful moment for the Fenix family, to JD Fenix running from a new nightmare 25 years later. Take a look at the trailer that features music from Disturbed as they cover Simon and Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence”.

If you played Gears of War: Ultimate Edition before today, then you have the opportunity to take part in the Beta for Gears of War 4 next Monday on April 18th. Everyone else can take part on April 25th.

Gears of War 4 will be releasing worldwide for the Xbox One on October 11th, 2016.
