Microsoft and The Coalition have already given us a glimpse at Gears of War 4‘s Launch Trailer, but there’s still a lot more to see before the game’s October 11th launch. Yesterday, The Coalition’s Rod Fergusson and Matt Searcy sat down to play through the game’s Prologue chapter.
The video includes more than 20 minutes of gameplay and, according to the Xbox Wire, players will get the chance to visit three “pivotal” moments from the franchise’s history:
Dropping players straight into the action at the opening of the game, Prologue immerses you in a series of pivotal moments from the Gears of War universe never before seen in a Gears videogame – including Emergence Day and a key battle from the Pendulum Wars.
After a brief introduction by The Coalition’s Studio Head Rod Fergusson and Lead Campaign Designer Matt Searcy, our uncut gameplay of Prologue will have you joining the fight across three decades of Gears history: the COG’s raid on UIR forces to secure the Hammer of Dawn technology at Aspho Fields, Emergence Day at the House of Sovereigns, and the Locust’s siege of Anvil Gate.
Gears of War 4 is an Xbox Play Anywhere title, so everyone who downloads it through the Xbox Games Store will receive a copy for their Xbox One and Windows 10 PC.
