Gears 4 is set to release worldwide on October 11th with the beta test set kick off in just over a week on the 18th of April. This new short clip comes after the new TV ad ‘Tomorrow’ that aired tonight during the Season 2 premiere of Fear the Walking Dead on AMC. All of this is a testament to the confidence and faith that the team has in the latest Gears game and this confidence is infectious.
The Coalition have been in full force recently thanks in part to coverage from Game Informer in revealing new details about the upcoming Gears 4. Game Informer’s continuing coverage of Gears of War 4 has recently also unveiled some new details about the approach that Fergusson and The Coalition are taking the Gears of War franchise in. Gears of War 4 is set 25 years after 2011’s trilogy concluder and stars a trio of new heroes – Kait Diaz, Delmont Walker and leading man JD Fenix, son of original trilogy protagonist Marcus Fenix.
To spot this confidence look no further than the beta tests Xbox One owners will be able to enjoy as early as the 18th of this month as a sign of the faith that The Coalition have in their game. Holding a beta test 6 months before the game’s launch reflects how the team must have a lot of faith in the multiplayer portion of their game as it stands but also shows that they’re giving themselves a decent amount of time to make any necessary/fan-requested changes.
Did you think that looks as awesome as we did? Let us know what you think below.
