Microsoft announced today that on October 7th, they will be releasing a Xbox One S 2TB model that will also include a digital copy of the game for $449.99. You will see a picture of it below. Along with the console, with matching controller, they will be releasing a controller that is skinned to look like JD’s armor (The protagonist for Gears of War 4). Only Microsoft Stores and Gamestop will have access to the controllers, which release in September for $74.99. As a Gears fan, I for one have this pre-ordered, and can not wait for the game to release.
The Coalition took the stage first at the Microsoft E3 Press Conference and showed off a number of things, including a new trailer with Marcus! They also announced that Gears of War 4 will be cross platform with Windows 10! They also showed the Gears of War 4 Elite Wireless Controller which will be released in October. We are still waiting on pricing for the new controller!
Microsoft and The Coalition Game Studios have announced that the latest game in the franchise will be releasing worldwide on Xbox One on October 11th 2016. The Beta will start on April the 18th for everyone, and on April the 15th for Gears of War Ultimate Edition owners.
Gears of War 4 marks the beginning of an epic new saga for one of gaming’s most celebrated franchises, as a new band of heroes rises to confront a fearsome new threat. Harkening back to the dark and intense roots of the original classic, fans can expect a familiar, yet distinct evolution of gameplay, including brutal and intimate action, a heart-pounding campaign, genre-defining multiplayer and stunning visuals powered by Unreal Engine 4.
Those of you, like me, that are BIG Gears of War fans will be very happy to hear that during a live stream, a Microsoft representative announced that Gears of War 4 will move from a “Holiday 2016” title to a “Fall 2016” title. This means it would move out of the holiday window of October, November, and December and possibly into a late August or September time frame. Either way I am excited as this is my most anticipated game of the new year!
