Microsoft has released a new seven minute long campaign gameplay video for Gears of War 4. Among the new slice of gameplay is the revelation that series star Marcus Fenix won’t just play a side role in the final game, with him actually joining up as part of his son’s squad.
The entire video is worth checking out for fans of the games, shoing some great new pieces of the campaign. The team seems to be in pursuit of the Swarm, a new enemy for the franchise. “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,” reads the description.
Marcus doesn’t seem to be playing a small role within the team either, actually yelling out orders to D, Del, and Kait. However, it does not look like he will be playable just yet, with the possibility still lingering for a side quest, or special mission. Instead the team has focused on JD and the new characters being added for Gears of War 4.
All of the footage for this Gears of War 4 video was taken from an Xbox One, with a Windows 10 PC version also coming on October 11th thanks to the Xbox Play Anywhere program.
