Microsoft Exec: Gears of War 4 is ‘Mind-Blowing’

By | 8 months ago 

The Coalition producer Rod Fergusson shows off some Gears of War 4 gameplay for Xbox marketing exec Aaron Greenberg, and the response was very positive.

When Xbox boss Phil Spencer was shown some new Gears of War footage last week, he was reportedly blown away and stated that developers The Coalition were making “stunning progress” on the game. This week saw The Coalition studio head Rod Fergusson show off some more Gears of War 4 gameplay to Xbox marketing executive Aaron Greenberg, and the response was also incredibly positive.

Fergusson tweeted he had shown Greenberg some new Gears of War 4 footage, to which Greenberg replied, saying that his “mind was blown” and that the game is in “very good hands” at The Coalition. With Fergusson having recently commented that Gears of War 4 will be a “graphical showcase”, it appears that his words are holding strong for the moment, at least to the important executives at Xbox. The Twitter exchange between Fergusson and Greenberg can be seen below:

Based on the positive comments so far, it appears that Gears of War 4 is living up to the hype and anticipation. Not only is Gears of War 4 looking to set a new graphical benchmark again for games everywhere, but the upcoming game will return to its roots by allowing gamers to play 2-player co-op once again, something which is bound to please long-time Gears fans. In fact, the progress made on Gears of War 4 has impressed Cliff Bleszinski so much that the lead designer of the original Gears of War trilogy recently took to Twitter to share his positive thoughts.

While not much new gameplay footage has some out since that stunning Gears of War 4 E3 2015 trailer, it is almost certain that gamers will see some new Gears of War material very soon, especially with the game’s scheduled 2016 launch date looming on the horizon. Having promised more Gears of War 4 news soon, perhaps some new light will soon be shed on the new protagonist JD, that awesome unnamed female protagonist, and those mysterious new enemies who have replaced the Locasts as humanity’s latest threat.

It’s little surprise that Gears of War 4 is one of 2016’s most anticipated titles, and with the likes of Gears, Quantum BreakCobalt, and Halo Wars 2 on list of 2016 Xbox One exclusive games, it looks like this year is shaping up to be a big one for Gears of War and Xbox fans.

Gears of War 4 is scheduled for launch in 2016 for Xbox One.
