Gears of War 4 - Storm Gameplay

Well, it apparently doesn’t take long for Papa Fenix to jump back into the fray. Microsoft’s YouTube channel stealth dropped a new gameplay clip from Gears of War 4 today, and Marcus Fenix features quite prominently.

Marcus Fenix Is Back

Courtesy of footage taken from the Xbox One, we watch as “JD, Del, Kait and Marcus Fenix are in pursuit of creatures called the Swarm. With their village destroyed and Kait’s mom abducted, the squad gives chase through the wilds of Sera and must battle through an incredible storm.” Scary has hell is perhaps a more apt description of said storm, as it appears to be something akin to a severe tornado or high category hurricane. Our quartet of Gears must blow through some Locust adversaries before the weather takes them all out in what seems to be quite the stress inducing segment of gameplay.

Also showcased today is the spiffy new Xbox One S model that Microsoft will be launching along side Gears of War 4. The “Limited Edition Gears of War 4 Bundle, featuring a gritty, battle weathered console and controller, 2TB Hard Drive, 4K Ultra HD video, High Dynamic Range, custom system sounds, and a vertical stand. Includes a full game download of Gears of War 4: Ultimate Edition for Xbox One and Windows 10, with early access, exclusive in-game items, a Season Pass, and much more.”

Check the new console out courtesy of the video just below. Gears of War 4 launches on October 11th for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. Get your chainsaws ready.
