Gears of War 4 Announced for Xbox One in 2016. Campaign Gameplay Revealed (E3 2015)

Gears of War 4 AKA Gears 4 is coming in 2016 exclusively for Xbox One announced Microsoft at their keynote E3 2015 Press Conference, including the world-premier of gameplay footage for the single-player campaign for Gears of War 4!

Check out the first ever gameplay footage of Gears of War 4!

Huge kudos to Microsoft for shortening the name to simply “Gears 4”, considering that Gears of War is always shortened to simply “Dude wanna play some Gears?” by regular people. Haha.

Gears of War 4 looks absolutely awesome. However, fans will largely see a game that is unchanged from what they know & love.

Unlike say the “Roadie Run” that was introduced in the first game (released for Xbox 360 in 2006), along with the “Kill.Switch” (PS2, 2004) inspired blind-shooting & cover mechanics (which set the standard for all future third-person shooters); Gears 4 doesn’t look to offer any new mechanics… At least nothing yet shown.

What it DID show was an absolutely gorgeous, slower-paced, eerie environment to explore with two seemingly all-new characters, a female & a male.

We do see some shooting action take place, as well as the Lancer, Gnasher Shotgun and Chainsaw weapons in action.

Even with nothing new to get excited about, Gears 4 still impressed and is already looking mighty fine.

Are you excited about Gears 4? Do you believe there will be any new elements?
