In an interview with IGN, Gears of War 4 creative director Chuck Osieja revealed that, thought he will be featured in the campaign, Marcus Fenix will not be a playable character in the campaign mode.
Gives me the impression Marcus Fenix is going to die in Gears 4
That would be such a generic move...it's been done to death. I'm hoping he's alive until this trilogy wraps up. I feel they've done the same to Anya. When a film or game gets a sequel and they can't think what to do with a character, usually a love interest, they kill them off and bring in someone new. I really wanted old man Marcus and Anya to kickass together.
Agreed. They can keep him out of the main story afterwards, but please don't kill him off for the sake of killing him off.
Death has indeed been done to death.
Not even in co-op?
Probably not as he's going to play a role similar to Cole and Baird in the original--solely for story purposes.
I feel they're revealing way too much... By the time the game releases there won't be any mysteries left. They should've kept that Marcus kicker embargoed for full dramatic affect while playing.
Also the robot enemies I keep forgetting the name of.. it seems like this is MS' s last big gun and they dont wanna take risks with it as evident by the offer that if u buy the game b4 year end u get all previous games for free.
They need a lesson in "Less is more". I truly understand the importance of this game as a whole for Microsoft, but spoiling it for everyone just to keep it in the spotlight isn't going to help review scores and will only hurt them in the long run. Luckily for myself I'm in full embargo (didn't appreciate the Marcus reveal at E3, totally dick move personally) So I'll be going in fresh.
@skippypaccino totally agreed.. did the same for uc4. On media blackput for gears but the footage plus news isnt being helpful
If your'e complaining about more games than you're being delusional.
Miss that guy. Bring him back! He'll whip these pansies into shape!
Not be a playable character. ................ for free.
Understandable. Gears of War is not about Marcus, anymore. It's now about JD and the next generation, such as Kait and Del.
There's been a change of plans for me. I have a week before I leave on a vacation I expect not to return from. Wish me luck I'll need it...
