The Coalition's Rod Fergusson about how the new Horde mode is closer to that of Gears 2 than Gears 3.
"When I started up Gears 4 what I really wanted to go back to was this notion of emergent gameplay," says Fergusson. "I liked Gears 3 horde, but it became a tower defence game, kind of like a vending machine. You put in a coin, fortification appears and that was it. And what I loved about Gears 2 horde was that notion of that you're playing shields, and you're planting grenades and you're just sort of barely surviving, but you're also making it up as you go along."
