Gears of War: E-Day revealed in Xbox Showcase at Summer Game Fest

It’s been 5 years since Gears 5, the latest mainline Gears of Battle recreation, and quite a bit of followers had been straight-up questioning if there was ever even going to be one other Gears of Battle recreation. The Coalition, the Xbox Game Studios developer that makes Gears of Battle video games, lastly revealed a brand new recreation in the collection known as Gears of Battle: E-Day.

The moody cinematic trailer, which even features a temporary clip of Gary Jules’ “Mad World” cowl that appeared in an old, iconic trailer for the first Gears of War, depicts two Gears troopers combating Locust enemies. It appears to be like like this recreation’s story shall be a prequel to the primary Gears of Battle recreation, as one of the 2 Gears is carrying Marcus Fenix’s headwrap and appears like he’s a younger model of the well-known character who starred in the unique trilogy of Gears of Battle video games (and nonetheless seems as an older advisory character in the latter-day Gears video games). The opposite Gears soldier seems to be a younger model of Dom, Marcus’ BFF from the unique video games. The sport’s “E-Day” title, which refers back to the unique day that the Locust confirmed up, additional cements the prequel thought and tells us precisely when this recreation is occurring.

The primary three Gears of Battle video games, all made by Epic Video games, had been an unique staple of the Xbox lineup in the late 2000s and 2010s. The video games popularized the duvet shooter style in addition to “horde mode,” a survival mode in which gamers face countless waves of enemies and attempt to keep alive so long as they will. Gears video games weren’t the primary to do both of these sorts of gameplay, however they’re nonetheless maybe the most well-liked examples of each. After the discharge of the preliminary trilogy, although, a number of issues modified. The video games’ lead designer Cliff Bleszinski left Epic Video games in 2012, and in 2014, the Gears of Battle license was acquired by Xbox Game Studios.

Most followers (together with this writer) agree that the very first Gears recreation post-acquisition, Gears of Battle 4, was a rocky transition and didn’t “feel” fairly like a Gears recreation, tone-wise. Gears 5 managed to recapture quite a bit of the magic of the originals whereas additionally introducing some new stuff (like open world sections, that are bizarre for a Gears recreation however not un-fun). It’s very attention-grabbing to see the Coalition returning to E-Day and clearly attempting to evoke the texture and the look of the unique Gears of Battle trilogy.

As for a way the Coalition has spent its time since growing Gears 5, it positively wasn’t simply a right away dive into Gears of Battle: E-Day. As an alternative, the studio made Gears Ways (2020), a turn-based technique recreation set in the Gears universe; and The Coalition was additionally tapped to help in the development of Halo Infinite. If there have been ever going to be an announcement of a Gears of Battle recreation in 2024, followers would have anticipated it to be Gears 6, a straight-up sequel to Gears 5, so this announcement comes as a shock throughout.
