Microsoft has announced that all current and future pre-orders for Gears of War 4 will gain exclusive free access to its Brothers to the End Elite Gear Pack. It will add three more characters and two gold weapons to the Xbox One and Windows 10 game.
Xbox Wire says the pack will contain the Gold Wave Lancer and Gold Wave Gnasher weapons, along with these characters:
- "Tomorrow Anya" is named after her famous words following the end of the Locust War ("Tomorrow Marcus. We finally have a tomorrow.") Her appearance is based on her look in the Gears of War 4 television commercial, "Tomorrow," where she was introduced as the mother of JD Fenix.
- "Old Man Marcus" features an older Marcus Fenix as unveiled in the E3 2016 media briefing demo. Twenty-five years after the Locust War, Marcus and the COG have long since parted ways. His facial hair has grown long and his COG regulation kit has been replaced with by civilian clothes.
- "Zombie Dom" proves there's no keeping a good solider down, at least in the form of this character skin created as tribute to Marcus' dearly departed best friend Dominic Santiago
These new characters and weapon skins will be added to Gears of War 4's previously announced pre-order bonuses of the Vintage Del character skin, retailer specific weapon skins and all four Xbox 360 Gears games that can be played on the Xbox One via its backwards compatibility feature. Gears of War 4 will be released on Oct. 11.
