Another Gears of War 4 teaser to get you ready for tonight's reveal0 Comments
Microsoft has released what will likely be the final teaser leading up to their big Gears of War 4 reveal tonight. There has been a lot of speculation as to exactly what Microsoft and Epic Games will be revealing at approximately 10 P.M. EST after putting up a countdown clock several days ago on the official Gears of War site, but NeoGAF users have been pouring over code to bring us the efforts of their source-spelunking. The official reveal video is set to air during Fear The Walking Dead, which returns tonight at 9 P.M. on AMC.
NeoGAF users found an image that read "The Nightmare Reborn," which has now appeared above the clock on the site, and also dug up these two short videos which depict wreckage from a downed plane in a lightning storm. One of the videos has since been removed, and the latter does little to clue us in to what's coming.
Microsoft had also treated us to an earlier teaser video on April 11, that played the same words across the screen as JD Fenix runs through the woods being chased by monsters. This is likely an actual clip from the full reveal trailer that we'll be seeing later tonight; Microsoft has been laying down some heavy PR to advertise the game in advance of its beta coming later this month. Players can get early access to the beta on April 18 if they own and have played Gears of War: Ultimate Edition before tomorrow, but all Xbox One users will get access when the beta opens up April 25.
Gears of War 4 doesn't launch until October 11, so this likely won't be the only batch of teasers leading up to a big reveal with the possibility of additional beta dates for the game. I'm not arguing though, any chance to play-test a game ahead of release is a boon for both the gamer and the developer.
