Gameinformer has just released new screenshots of one of the most beautiful games on the market. That game of course is Gears of War 4, developed by the fantastic new company called The Coalition. When it comes to the Gears of War franchise and Unreal Engine, Epic Games didn’t hold back on graphics and quality. Judging by these screenshots and that gameplay demo at 2015 E3. The Coalition isn’t holding back either. Let’s take a look shall we?
So this first image we have a church. What do the inhabitant of planet Sera believe in? It’s funny because I’ve never asked myself that question before. Lead designer Rod Fergusson stated that Gears of War 4 is going to be going back to its horror and darker style experience.
Well, well, well, what do you we have here? These buggers are called Juvies. They look a little bit like Locust but I thought the Locust horde was wiped out in the events of Gears of War 3. Apparently on their own they aren’t much of a problem, but in packs, they are utterly devastating.
This is the power of the Unreal Engine 4. The environment in the previous games were limited due to the power of the last generation. Gears of War 4 will also feature dynamic environments like tornados and lightning storms, but with particles everywhere! They aren’t going to just be simple storms, you are going to see the very surface of buildings and cities being torn apart, brick by brick.
Gears of War has always been known for it’s many different executions. Wait… you mean we finally get to pull out the knives that we had equipped on our armor and use them? I wonder if the knife is only used during executions, or perhaps pull it out any time we want and just run around stabbing people.
So are the Locust back or something? Well one thing is for sure, The Coalition is going to try to jam pack this game with as many combat tactics as possible. Gears of War 3 introduced us to the mantle kick. That’s where you jump over cover, kick your enemies which stuns them, and shoot them. The first Gears of War only had the curb stomp. The third game made it so that every gun had it’s own unique execution. I wonder what this new game will have in store.
