Gears of War is back! It’s been 3 years since Gears of War: Judgment came out, and the series was seemingly dead for the past couple of years. Judgment was a big disappointment as it felt rushed and done without inspiration. Microsoft bought the Gears of War of franchise of Epic Games soon after, and handed over the reins to The Coalition. I am happy to say that the game is return to form to the franchise. The campaign is fluid, cinematic and great fun. I love that the Gears of War humor is still intact here, and that it’s self aware of the ridiculousness of it all. The gameplay is as fluid as it’s ever been. The controls feel amazing. My only qualms with the story is that the ending felt a little abrupt to me. I like most of the new characters, but the three main characters (JD, Del, and Kait) are excellent. They’re funny and likable. I like the mix of old and new by The Coalition, especially not overshadowing the new characters with fan favorites.

Gears of War 4 takes place 25 years after the Imulsion Countermeasure weapon destroyed all Imulsion on the planet Sera, taking the Locust and the Lambent with them as well. Unfortunately, this also knocked out the use of fossil fuels, forcing humanity to adapt new ways for survival. The countermeasure also brought the advent of “Windflares”, powerful windstorms that form across the planet. Following the aftermath of the Lambent Epidemic, the reformed Coalition of Ordered Governments estimated that only hundreds of thousands of humans are left on Sera. To prevent the population from declining, walled-off cities were built to protect the citizens from the dangers outside. The COG also declared martial law, preventing any travel from outside of city walls. Some human survivors rejected the viewpoints of the COG and formed a group called the “Outsiders” that live outside of the COG jurisdiction, conducting raids on COG territory to gather resources

As always we used relevant gameplay, important dialogue and all cutscenes to create a fluid cinematic experience. We hope you enjoy!
