Everything new coming to Gears of War 4 Multiplayer


There are few things more satisfying than running up to an opposing online player, revving up a chainsaw bayonet, and brutally cutting them in half. Gears of War 4 will soon be bringing this joyfully bloody offering to Xbox One. I got a chance to take on a swarm of opponents in Gears of War 4’s multiplayer, and the good news is that all it’s gory, blood-soaked goodness is intact. However, with a new iteration comes some tweaks to the multiplayer formula, and developer The Coalition is making some significant changes to the competitive side of the game.

I played an early pre-alpha build of Gears 4 that showcases some of the new mechanics. Everything from the weapons in your arsenal to the way you use cover has seen some adjustments, but from what I’ve played so far, it feels like going back to the old-school Gears gameplay we all fell in love with… with a few, necessary modern features to top it all off.
