The Ultimate Edition may have released last week but if you weren’t interested in that, then today is the day for your excitement levels to rise. Gears of War 4 is here…and you can buy it on your Xbox one or Windows 10 PC!
Gears of War 4 will see you fighting to save your loved ones from an ominous, dangerous threat. JD Fenix, son of the legendary Gears solider Marcus Fenix, takes on a monstrous new enemy in a monstrous new world as you get the opportunity to team up with up to two players local co-op split screen style. Alternatively if you want to play online co-op campaign, then of course that option is available.
Horde 3.0 is also in place and introduces skill and ability progression for the first time. You will pick from five combat classes, each with unique special abilities, whilst the addition of classes adds another dimension to Horde as you and up to 4 others fight off increasingly difficult waves of enemies, with a boss round every 10 waves.
Of course, you know all this already, mainly because the Ultimate Edition has been out for a few days and the reviews have been dropping left, right and centre. If you want one of those, then it’s quite possibly for the best that you check out our on review of Gears of War 4.
Available exclusively on Xbox One and Windows 10, the standard edition of Gears of War 4 is available now from the Xbox Games Store for £41.74.
