Gears of War 4 gets all spooky and scary for Halloween

[Header courtesy of Reddit user Perrinho] Unbeknownst to me, Gears of War has celebrated Halloween in the past. Apparently there was an event for 3 that featured pumpkin heads and it looks like The Coalition is set to follow suit with Gears...

Review: Gears of War 4

The plot of Gears of War 4 is the most low stakes the franchise has ever been. Ironic, kind of, because it's probably the highest stakes ever for Xbox. With Epic Games no longer serving as its guiding hand, Xbox is left to see if ...

Gears of War 4 economy altered due to fan feedback

Gears of War 4 is another highly rated entry in the series by gamers and critics alike (I'm digging the campaign so far), but early access players by way of the Ultimate Edition have had a few complaints. Those issues are being addressed ea...

Bill Gates loved the Gears of War chainsaw gun

Gears of War 4 is out soon and getting rave reviews across the internet. I haven't played it yet, nor do I own a system that would allow me to do so, but I do have extremely fond memories of making my way through the first Gears of War...

Universal is taking a crack at a Gears of War movie

Just ahead of Gears of War 4's release on Tuesday, Microsoft Studios and Universal Pictures have announced plans for a Gears of War feature film "based on the Xbox video game series." Aside from that quote and some initial production credit...

The Gears of War Xbox One S is a neat tribute to the series

I wasn't tasked with designing the machine, but I'm hard-pressed to think of a look for a Gears of War Xbox One S that better fits the franchise. This thing is unapologetically brash, ostentatious, and indiscreet -- all words that...

Buy a GTX 1070 or 1080, get Gears of War 4 for free

Upgrading your PC for the latest games is something of a lost practice. Since a lot of games are based on console architecture, most newer toasters are able to run anything. Some games (Crysis) will push your system to the breaking point, b...

Gears of War 4 will feature split-screen on PC

Fans of couch co-op will be happy to hear that Gears of War 4 will feature a split-screen option on PC. In an interview with PC Gamer, Mike Rayner, technical director for the Coalition, confirmed the option. "We have to deal with multiple ...

Gears of War 4 season pass detailed

I've only been a staff writer for a little over a month and I'm already tired of season passes. Why does every game require one? When something like Lego Batman 3 gets a season pass, you know there are problems with the industry. Tangent as...

Gears of War 4's Horde mode is class-based

Our second look at Horde mode in Gears of War 4 is much, much better than our first. The co-op survival mode will have five players fortifying positions with a mobile Fabricator tool and fending off creatures and even robots across 50 wave...

Are you looking forward to Gears of War 4?

I haven't really seen any major buzz (at least in the community itself) regarding Gears of War 4. I remember there being some excitement towards the initial reveal and the enhanced focus on horror, but not much since. This footage of the ma...

'Zombie Dom' is one of the Gears of War 4 pre-order bonuses

The pre-order bonuses for Gears of War 4 are mostly what you'd expect. Gold weapon skins. Some alternate outfits. The four Xbox 360 Gears titles for use on Xbox One via backward compatibility. Then there's Zombie Dom. Just what in the heck ...

Gears of War 4 doesn't have a locked frame rate on PC

While Gears of War 4 is coming to both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC, the experiences across the two platforms won't be identical. With the Play Anywhere functionality, players will be able to hop between the two versions freely to make t...

Marcus Fenix tags along in new Gears of War 4 gameplay

All new campaign gameplay for Gears of War 4 has been released and it is damned easy on the eyes. Sure, it looks like more of the same, gameplay-wise, but is that really a bad thing? I've always dug the Gears series and even...

This limited-edition Xbox One S is a bit much

I have no desire to get an Xbox One S -- not as a current Xbox owner and especially not with Microsoft's Project Scorpio coming down the line -- but I can't deny how sharp the system looks in white. This first limited-edition model themed a...

Grading Microsoft's E3 2016 conference

Microsoft delivered a solid outing at E3 this year. Most of the games where already known -- save for Forza Horizon 3 and zombie games State of Decay 2 and the new Dead Rising -- but the company (mostly) learned to zip up and show gam...

My pacifist run of Gears of War 4 didn't go great

Gears of War 4 plays a lot like you'd expect a Gears of War game to play. Steven said as much when he previewed the multiplayer component a few months back. The series is so deeply entrenched in its own style that changes have to be mo...
