Kicking off the Xbox E3 Press event, Gears of War 4 seems to be bringing the series back in a big way, with JD Fenix and his friends Kait and Del as they traverse through the world as a very deadly storm starts to pick up.
Gears of War 4 takes place in the course of one night as JD, Kait and Del embark on a desperate mission to rescue the ones they love and discover a monstrous new threat. It’s a game that’s more intimate, but at the same time more epic and intense than any previous Gears game.
It was also confirmed that Horde mode is back and it’s leveled up! With new classes, skills and abilities tied to cards and more, we are confident this will be the Horde mode that everyone is dying to play with friends. Additionally, Gears of War 4 will feature cross-play on Xbox One and Windows 10 for all co-op modes (campaign, Horde and Co-op Versus), and 4K support for Windows 10. As an Xbox Play Anywhere title, you’ll receive both versions of the game with a single purchase, and be able to switch seamlessly between them through our shared progression system (enabled through cloud saves).
In addition to these features, Gears of War 4 will include split-screen and online co-op, an awesome new arsenal of customizable weapons and characters, 60 frames-per-second Versus multiplayer on dedicated servers, all-new maps and game types, deadly close-cover combat moves, stunning visuals powered by Unreal Engine 4 and more.
