Rod Fergusson and Matt Searcy, Studio Head and Lead Campaign Designer respectively over at The Coalition, sat down to take us through the first 20 minutes of Gears of War 4. The introduction to the game isn’t at all what I expected – which is fantastic. However, I must warn you, HEAVY SPOILERS are to follow.
Okay, you’ve been… The beginning of Gears of War 4 doesn’t begin with our new heroes at all. No, J.D. Fenix and his crew aren’t involved – because they likely don’t exist yet. Instead, we are taken back to the glory days of The Cog. It’s here during the game’s introduction that we are actually thrown into the midst of a few of the most infamous battles mentioned in the series.
The description to today’s (unlisted) video simply reads “Revisit the Sera of Gears past and learn more about the Sera of today, 25 years later.” There’s a lot more to Sera’s past than the video lets on though. Battles that were mere mentions in the past are on full display here. And friends that were lost are back to make nostalgic fans happily heartbroken.
If you haven’t hit play yet, consider not doing so. This one might be better off begin experience for yourself when Gears of War 4 launches on October 11th.
