Gears of War 4 has debuted a new trailer – featuring a familiar face.
Adopting Simon & Garfunkel’s The Sound of Silence as its soundtrack – much the same way that the original game used Gary Jules Mad World – the trailer introduces us to J.D. Fenix, the son of Marcus, the hero from the first three games. What’s more, Marcus shows up in a childhood flashback.
Featuring a cast of new heroes, Gears of War 4 will be available on Xbox One. A multiplayer beta of the game starts on April 24 for Xbox Live Gold subscribers, with ‘early access’ beginning on April 18 for those who played Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on Xbox One or PC. The beta will run until May 1.
The full fame launches on October 11.
