Microsoft Reveals Gears of War: E-Day, a Prequel to the Gears Series

Go back in time to when the Wars first started Gearing.

A new Gears of War game was heavily rumored to be revealed at this year's Xbox Games Showcase, and that's just what we got. Gears of War: E-Day is a prequel that allows players to take control of Marcus Fenix, the original Gears series protagonist, as he endures the series' famous Emergence Day event. We don't have any gameplay details yet, but E-Day is likely to feature campaign co-op and a cooperative Horde mode.

The reveal trailer shows a young Marcus Fenix as he gets attacked by a Locust drone. We don't want to spoil anything, but it's likely that Marcus pulls through this attack. Marcus also encounters his buddy, Dom, who will surely have a long and happy life ahead of him. The Gears of War series isn't mopey at all, after all. In all seriousness, the serious is famous for its approachable third-person shooter action and excellent co-op features, so we're excited for E-Day.

Official description:

Fourteen years before Gears of War, war heroes Marcus Fenix and Dom Santiago return home to face a new nightmare: the Locust Horde. These subterranean monsters, grotesque and relentless, erupt from below, laying siege on humanity itself. Built from the ground up with Unreal Engine 5, Gears of War: E-Day delivers unprecedented graphical fidelity.

Gears of War: E-Day has no release date yet. It will be released on Xbox and PC. For more information, check out this article on Microsoft's Xbox Wire.
