New Gear(s) - Gears of War 4 offers some sweet new additions to the familiar arsenal. There are new weapons with some serious style and a sweet combat knife that enables a variety of close-up executions. Combat is getting upgraded with a bunch of new close-cover moves and attacks that bring new strategy to the familiar gameplay of Gears. Oh, and when you get bored of the basic heroes you can play as El-P. and Killer Mike from Run The Jewels. #swag
Horde 3.0 Enabled - One of the sickest features of Gears 4 is the revamped Horde mode. Horde 3.0 allows players to customize their base using materials from the Fabricator. This should add a serious strategic element to the basic survival gameplay. There are five unique classes to choose from and leveling these classes grants access to more skills and upgrades. In addition, you can pick up powerful cards in the cash shop or during play.
Rank It Up! - After you’ve mastered the new gameplay of Gears 4 in single player, head online to check out the new versus multiplayer. There are old favorites and some new additions to the competitive game types. All online play is 60fps and allows competitive, casual, and professional gamers to compete within a visual, equitable ranking system. Whether you’re PC master race or a die hard console gamer, there’s serious competition available in Gears of War 4.
