Gears of War E-Day feature

Microsoft has officially announced Gears of War: E-Day, and its has shared its first in-engine trailer

Microsoft has announced the next part in its GoW series, Gears of War: E-Day. Gears of War: E-Day will be powered by Unreal Engine 5, will be developed by The Coalition, and will be a prequel to the first Gears of War.

The game takes place 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.

Gears of War: E-Day promises to deliver unprecedented graphical fidelity thanks to UE5. And although MS and The Coalition did not share any additional details, we can assume that the game will take full advantage of both Lumen and Nanite.

To celebrate this announcement, MS shared the following in-engine cinematic trailer. As you will see, it looks absolutely stunning. The last panoramic shot, in particular, looks phenomenal. So I’m curious to see whether the game will be able to match these visuals during gameplay.

Finally, there is no ETA on when Gears of War: E-Day will come out.

Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
