Microsoft's released new gameplay of Gears of War 4's campaign.

The video, below, confirms that daddy Marcus Fenix comes along for the ride during at least one point in the game. We only catch a glimpse of him in action in the gameplay, as the player is in control of his son, JD, throughout.

The video showcases the quiet/loud gameplay the Gears series is known for, with cover-based combat and environmental triggers.

There's lots of shouting, lots of blood and a big old storm.

Here's the official blurb:

JD, Del, Kait and Marcus Fenix are in pursuit of creatures called the Swarm. With their village destroyed and Kait's mom abducted, the squad gives chase through the wilds of Sera and must battle through an incredible storm.

Gears of War 4 comes out on PC and Xbox One on 11th October 2016.
