Gears of War 4's old Marcus

We're still nearly three weeks away from the release of Gears of War 4, but for some strange reason Microsoft has decided to release its launch trailer anyway. This little detail aside, fans of the melancholic Gears of War trailers will be delighted to hear that this one features plenty of action set to a dramatic, escalating soundtrack - in this case a cover of Metallica's Nothing Else Matters.

While I won't say its as good as the original Mad World trailer, it does give you a pretty damn good idea of what's happening in the story, and more importantly, what's happening with a few of the fan favorite characters. Have a look:


On a slightly unrelated, but equally interesting note, The Coalition has recently announced that the PC version of Gears of War 4 will support split-screen co-op, as well as cross platform play with the Xbox One. Naturally, this will be limited to the campaign and private lobbies only, but its still a rather exciting addition, and one that is well worth celebrating. 

Whether Gears of War 4 itself will be worth celebrating, that we'll be able to find out on October 11th once it finally releases.
