Gears of War joins Halo and Forza as one of Microsoft Studios' flagship exclusive titles. It's a third-person shooter that takes place on a fictional Earth-like planet named Sera, inhabited by humans. After decades of conflict, the remnants of humanity united under an entity known as the Coalition of Governments, (C.O.G. for short). Over the course of Gears of War 1, 2 and 3, the remaining populace is decimated by a subterranean threat, known only as the Locust.
Gears of War is known for it's violently satisfying co-op heavy campaign gameplay, challenging versus modes, and addictive wave-based Horde mode. Gears of War 4 will kick start an all-new saga on October 11th, 2016 as an Xbox Play Anywhere title, meaning that a single purchase will net you a copy on both Xbox One and Windows 10.
