Gears Of War 4 Shows 20 Minutes Of Prologue Gameplay

Rev your gunsaws

Given that it's been a fair few years since we last had Gears of War on PC, you might have missed or forgotten what it's all about - other than fridgemen crouching behind waist-high concrete blocks shouting, obvs. Something about aliens? Or were they Moonmen? Morlocks? With pet coconut crabs? Well, with Gears of War 4 [official site] a fortnight away from launching on Windows 10, a new twenty-minute gameplay trailer revisits some key moments from Gearsworld recent history to explain a bit more. It's showing off the game's Prologue chapter, see, with many a fiery set piece.

So The Good Guys had a war with some other fellas on their planet, then they had a war with the people and coconut crabs living inside their planet, and then that was it. After twenty minutes, peace is won and the Prologue is over. From that point on, we can only assume Gears of War 4 becomes a very fancy walking simulator. Wander a peaceful planet, cooing at their shiny city with its shiny statues. Lovely lovely peace!

Gears of War 4 is hitting Windows 10 on October 11th, priced at £49.99. Console prices on PC games are still weird to me. But it'll be one of those 'Xbox Play Anywhere' games, where buying it digitally gets you the game on both Win 10 and Xbone, so our prices go up to match. I don't even have an Xbone. Tch. As for PC technobits like boasting higher-resolution textures, check this.
