    :(

    At least this is

    a) indicative of some news soon

    b) not a bump about fucking *dolls*

    ;-)

    Please be real!

    Sorry about the actual YT link, but I can't get another picture of the all Red model.
    ...that is sexual chocolate, right there. I will be buying any ltd Gears console of course, but would love that.

    Sorry to bump with no actual news. I can't tell you how much I NEED Gears4 news.

    Well now we know: Gears 4 set 25 years after 3, and JD is Marcus' (and presumably Anya's) son.

    NEWS.

    @Ghostoftrout
    Trout it is Gears man, come on baby step aboard.
    Personally I can not fookin wait.

    I did really want 4 player co-op, such great memories. Hopefully Horde will still be 5 player.

    I'm looking forward to finding out more. I still don't really know where they can go after the end of 3, but at least we have a few details now.

    @Ror probably the same as Halo 4: introduce a new enemy and find an excuse to bring the old enemy back, all of this without radically changing the gameplay.

    Some kind of Q&A tomorrow.

    The Covenant returning in Halo 4 made narrative sense, as well as gameplay sense. They were a vast, interstellar empire that broke into civil war. Something like that is never going to end cleanly. I think people will be annoyed if the Locust come back (outside of Horde), given what happened at the end of Gears 3.

    Looks amazing hope it goes back to the gears roots. Judgement was horrible.

    Nicked from shinobi602 on GAF:

    -2 player couch co-op (Online TBA)
    -Set on Sera 25 years after Gears of War 3
    -Imulsion weapon set off at the end of GOW3 killed off all fossil fuels
    -Humanity has become an endangered species huddled in walled cities seeking shelter from devastating wind storms (as a result of the bomb & intense war aftermath)
    -Called "windflares", sort of a melting of a hurrican and volcano
    -4 categories of weather in the game: Start out as heavy breeze (trees, leaves, dust kicking up) and grow into violent category 3 windstorms that can affect combat and weapon usage
    -Category 4 windstorms have you just trying to survive, super violent, dodging lightning strikes, etc
    -Think of the wind when fighting: Putting the wind behind could help projectile travel, but fighting directly against the wind could throw bullets back at you
    -Enemies also affected by the weather (which you could exploit and use strategically)
    -"Outsider" camps outside of COG
    -Heavy inspiration on the setting from Northern Italy (forests, forts, etc)
    -Want to get back to the "intimacy" and "boogeyman" feeling of the original Gears
    -Team settled on story that features 3 protagonists and stretches across a 24 hour span in game
    -JD Fenix (main character) is Marcus Fenix's son
    -JD: Joined the COG militia, classified incident forced him to AWOL
    -Del: JD in the campaign, befriended him at boarding school (deep bond)
    -Kait: Outsider, capable survivalist, shares Outsider perspective with JD/Del
    -Story begins as their Outsider village is invaded by a mysterious new force; kidnapped
    -The trio goes into the forest in search, wondering why only they were spared
    -New enemy is called "The Swarm"
    -After the war, too many Locust to bury so many were tossed into mass graves (our trio believe this new threat may be linked)
    -First mission sets off with the trio in the forest, discovering giant cocoon-like pods, pale monstrous creatures erupt looking almost human
    -These enemies are dubbed "Juvies" (harkening to their seemingly first evolutionary stage of a new enemy)
    -Juvies can eventually evolve into "Drones" (homage to the trilogy), able to use weapons, seemingly the main enemy type
    -Also experimenting with new enemies like the "Pouncer" (E3 demo)
    -Pouncer switches tactics based on player (if you run out in the open, it shoots poisonous quills; stay in cover and it comes after you)
    -New weapons like "construction based" tools repurposed for combat
    -Wanted to revamp the cover system; can more easily mantle kick over any piece of cover & perform knife kills
    -Can also perform a short distance shoulder charge, knocking enemies off balance
    -Enemies can also pull players out of cover and perform their own takedowns
    -Implementing dynamic cover (for example shooting enemy pods from ceilings in an otherwise open area)
    -Big emphasis on multiplayer, saying original Gears development was 90% SP, 10% MP
    -Want to meet needs of recreational players and esports players
    -Acknowledges love for horde mode and promises fans won't be disappointed
    Couldn't be arsed to do any formatting.

    I hope it's horde from Gears 2 so there is no fortifications.

    Sounds good, where do I sign up?

    And I also agree with this. Horde on G2 was much more desperate.

    Morning Gearheads
    How fecking great is this news :) :) :)

    Re Horde. I'm just happy (will be) to have back. If we get fortifications, could be a way to work in microtransactions. I'm almost certain they will think of ways to charge for extras.

    I wonder if we are going to get classic locusts though ?

    Also re MP I feel it really needs to be human V monsters. Cog v Cog was an awful idea. We have Halo for blue v red, which does it wonderfully.

    I'm not so sure about you Halo diehards. Are you ready for full on Gears
    ...hehe, it will be great to have you join us.

    How about Gears Monday. I think it has a ring to it.

    Well at least if I play Horde I won't have to deal with wall-bouncing mentalists!

    I'm not sure about Gears Monday, I'm sure there's something else I do that day...

    Speaking of which, are you ever going to join in some EG Halo sessions? ;)

    You've been contaminated by these Halo diehards fellows Duff. They must give off flood-esque spores or something.



    Surely, Friday is the **OFFICIAL** Gears & beers night! ;-)

    He's trying to undermine the sanctity of Halo Mondays, and make every night Gears night.

    Eh? How can you hold a gun in your hand to fire bullets if the wind force is so strong that it can potentially blow back your bullets?
