The Coalition has finally revealed the first cinematic trailer for Gears of War 4 featuring Marcus Fenix and his son JD Fenix. The trailer also gives us a glimpse at what type of direction this new entry in the series will focus on, and judging from what we have seen, the focus appears to be on survival horror just like the original Gears of War.
As the trailer reveals, the game is set 25 years after the events of Gears of War 3. We also learn that Marcus Fenix will marry Anya and both will have a son who is going to be the main protagonist in Gears of War 4.
