Gears Of War 4 (2016) Xbox One
Gears Of War 4 was the series debut on Xbox One and as of right now it is one of the biggest exclusives that the Xbox One has. This is not a spin off game, it is a follow on from Gears Of War 3, all be it 25 years later.
The Locust and the Lambent threat have been over for years and mankind is living in huge walled cities and is living under martial law from the COG. Some humans rejected the COG’s new rules and live outside of these areas. The game is centered around the son of Marcus Fenix, JD and his squad. The Locust is not quite as dead as humanity thought add to this these huge wind flares (which boast some of the most impressive effects on the Xbox One) and humanity could very well be wiped off the face of Sera!
Gears Of War 4 is a fantastic game. While it introduces us to a new cast of characters. Marcus, Cole, and Baird all come along for the ride. It is the perfect balancing of mixing old with new and it was done very, very well. The game did have a cliffhanger ending, but it only made you want to experience more from this new group of heroes.
The team behind the game, The Coalition spent a lot of time making sure the multiplayer was just right and many gamers agreed that they did a fantastic job and even a year later, Gears Of War 4 has a strong multiplayer community on Xbox Live.
Gears Of War 4 has certainly opened up the series and we are super excited to see what JD and his team are up against next.
