Tonight The Coalition has released their first story based trailer for Gears of War 4. Titled “Tomorrow,” the trailer reveals peaceful scenes of a post-Locust War life as longtime series protagonist Marcus Fenix enjoys some gardening with his family. But the calm is cut with scenes of a time further away where Fenix’s grown son, JD, is shown being hunted by a new threat. All the while the scenes are set to Disturbed’s cover of “The Sound of Silence.”
With a tagline like “The Nightmare Reborn” it seems like Gears of War 4’s story may bring about the reintroduction of mutated life lifeforms attempting to wipe out humans living on Sera yet again. Though whether or not these new “Swarm” creatures are directly related to the Locust that hounded the previous generation of heroes remains to be seen. Prior to this trailer was a gameplay reveal back at 2015’s E3 presentation.
Gears of War 4 will be released on Xbox One on October 11 with a multiplayer beta dropping next week for Gears of War Ultimate Edition owners.
