Series creator Cliff Bleszinski shared some early praise for Gears of War 4's "brilliant" prologue and fun combat system.
I have been very take it or leave it with the series to date but this looks fun.
There's something for everyone between campaign, Horde Mode and Versus. And they even added cross-play and split-screen
Come on Cliffy B., admit it....you wish Gears was still your Baby. -OK, all jokes aside, yeah I'm really excited about this game, most of all it's gonna be great to play Gears of War 4 split screen with my kids.
I have yet to play any of them but they do look fun
We'll see on friday
Can't wait to play it, I already have it installed
Never liked Gears of War saga. But they talk about Gears 4 just fine, now CliffB speaks well too, curious to try it so much.
It would have been petty of him to talk badly of Gears, like he was the only one capable of doing it right. I'll be waiting for more impartial opinions.
Or you can go off the history the main trilogy games scored and base your opinion off of that. Either way, embargo lifts Oct 6th. Really no reason to expect low scores unless you desire them.
Nice. Just waiting for the game to unlock now. Can't wait to jump into campaign and horde mode.
It's gonna be greatness Arms Race mode and Horde here I come
I can't wait
Horde mode is gonna be badass. Has there been any word on beast mode returning?
cant wait to play this, but i dont understand what so special about the Prologue for him to even praise it
Instead of a recap video, they have a recap tutorial. They also show a section of the pendulum wars, with the beloved Dom making a cameo. The Emergence Day and Anvil gate sections show another point of view of a scene you play through in previous games.
Do you also know how to write *spoiler alert*? That would have been nice of you.
Cool to see that the creator of gears is giving it props when he's no longer involved.
Indeed. Though I'm not that interested in his new game, LawBreakers
I unfortunately feel the same about LawBreakers. The Gears campaign looks like something I'll definitely look forward to though!
I didn't even watch the whole prologue. I got maybe 5 minutes into it and shut it off because I'd rather just play the game not knowing anything this time around.
Same. Don't want it spoiled but man are they making it difficult. Lol
i want this game for the horde mode alone. i would buy an xb1 for this if it was cheaper here.
Would jumping into gears 4 be okay if i miss out gears 2 & 3 ?
In the same boat. If my understanding is correct, the game focuses on a new group and the game takes place 25 years after Gears of War 3. So I'd imagine its a new story/saga with some references to the past games. I'm sure reading up or watching a playthrough of 2 & 3 wouldn't hurt though if you can't play them.
Thanks. I suppose if i bought the game it would primarily be for MP. I was never into gears, and the gears 1 ultimate edition is alright for SP. I think if i get the game i'll just jump straight in.
There will be plenty of call back and references to the old games... you will be lost with a lot of that stuff. Also the entire prologue you won't get because you won't know the characters it is referencing...
can't wait for this game :)
