As we reported yesterday, the Xbox Team will attend San Diego Comic-Con starting tomorrow and Gears of War fans who will be there should be looking forward to a closer look at the upcoming shooter. Adam Fletcher, Director of Community at The Coalition, published a blog post today on Xbox Wire to share more details about the company’s presence at San Diego and also introduce three new Gears of 4-related videos.
First, there is a brand new gameplay trailer which reveals a game demo that Comic-Con attendees will be able to play at the Xbox booth. Here is the official description:
In this short gameplay demo of Gears of War 4, our heroes JD, Del, Kait and Marcus Fenix are in pursuit of creatures called the Swarm. With their village destroyed and Kait’s mom abducted, the squad gives chase through the wilds of Sera and must battle through an incredible storm.
In addition, Comic-Con attendees will be able to enjoy a hands-on gameplay of the game’s Versus Multiplayer on the just revealed multiplayer map “Forge”. You watch a sneak peek of the map below:
Fletcher also revealed today a cool new trailer that introduces the Gears of War 4 Limited Edition 2TB Xbox One S Bundle that the company announced earlier this month. Here is what Fletcher is saying about it:
Designed in collaboration between The Coalition and the Xbox design team, the first-ever custom-designed Xbox One S bundle is made to look as if it were lifted right out of the game itself. From the laser-etched scratches, to the bloody thumbprint on the controller’s red metallic D-pad and the iconic Crimson Omen, the console and Xbox Wireless Controller – Gears of War 4 Crimson Omen Limited Edition bear the battle marks of a desperate fight against Gears of War 4’s new enemies – the Swarm.
