The developers of Gears of War have announced a new collaboration between Xbox and hip-hop duo Run the Jewels. As part of the collaboration, the duo’s new song is featured in the latest Gears of War 4 Horde 3 trailer.
Seen above, the new trailer for Horde 3.0 in Gears of War 4 features a preview of the group’s new song “Panther Like a Panther.” The song is part of the group’s highly-anticipated third studio album, Run the Jewels 3, It also marks the first time Run the Jewels has premiered a track alongside a video game partner.
Horde, nonetheless, will make a return to Gears of War for the first time in five years. The multiplayer survival mode has not been available since Gear of War 2 in 2009, and the return will bring the classic co-op multiplayer intensity, but with some new touches. Check out the full details on Horde below.
In addition to ferocious new classes of enemies like the Swarm and the DeeBees, Horde 3.0 also introduces new innovations like a class-based system that lets you choose from five variations in roles – Soldier, Sniper, Scout, Heavy and Engineer – to play to your strengths and encourage teamwork. In addition, the new “Fabricator” is a deployable base of operations that allows players to build their defenses anywhere on the map and execute their defensive strategy with precision.
The gameplay of Horde will debut this weekend at PAX West this weekend on the showroom floor. Additionally, on Saturday, select guests will be able to compete to become the “First to Fifty” beginning at 6:30 PM PDT from the PAX Arena (live stream also on Twitch.) Fans in Seattle can also meet Killer Mike and El-P from Run the Jewels and Gears of War co-creator Rod Fergusson and score some very exclusive collaboration giveaways at BAIT on September 3rd .
