Gears of War 4 for Xbox One
In the latest in the Gears of War series, JD Fenix, the son of Marcus Fenix (the hero of the first three games) and Anya Stroud, narrowly escapes an attack on his village with his friends Kait and Del. The three must work together to save the village and defeat the new enemy.
It’s a first-person shooter, so there is a lot of shooting, including using the new Dropshot, which can dodge cover to get to your enemy. You can also sneak up and carry out executions with a combat knife. There’s also a horde mode, in which you can up to four others battle wave after wave of enemies until, well, they get you, but in the process, you build up skills.
The game is set on the planet Sera, which suffers from bizarre weather, including windstorms, that can force you to shift your attack mode.
Multiplayer online is available in multiple game types, and local players can play the game in two-play co-op mode, playing as Kait or Del. They can play on the same console via split-screen or via different consoles over Xbox Live or a LAN network.
