Gears of War
fans have a lot to look forward to after what was shown off at Microsoft's E3 conference. Gears of War 4
(or Gears 4
) was revealed and received a lengthy gameplay preview. Two new characters, one male and one female, stalk a monster through a deserted town on a calm moonlit night. That is until a massive storm rolls in and starts ripping apart everything in its path. Eventually the two, armed with a Lancer, Gnasher Shotgun, and Snub Pistol, face off against these new monsters in classic cover-based, blood-spattering fashion.
Before Gears of War 4
took the stage, The Coalition revealed Gears of War: Ultimate Edition
. It contains the first Gears of War
game running at 1080p / 60fps, and has a public multiplayer beta starting today. If you'd like to take part in it, you can now register over at the game's page
. Gears of War Ultimate Edition
is scheduled to release later this year on August 25th, while Gears of War 4
received a release window of holiday 2016, both for the Xbox One.
