    Well, there it was!
    Let the speculation begin!

    What the hell were those... things?
    They didn't look like locust.

    And I wonder what's with the shortened name?
    Just for E3?

    Cliff Bleszinski recently tweeted a lot of facts about the development of the previous Gears games - https://storify.com/iMinnesotaStyle...&utm_source=t.co&utm_content=storify-pingback

    It's not totally related to Gears of War 4 but he mentions a lot of big decisions done by Rod Fergusson. I know he was heavily involved in the making of the previous game but I previously didn't think he made as many major design decisions as he did.

    Actually, yeah.
    I'm beginning to think it's fake.
    As Badger points out, the font looks off, and the game has the full Gears of War title.

    It's a definite fake. I just assumed everyone knew it was fake based on the fact it's not called Gears 4.

    I'm getting even more excited for Gears 4.
    Look at those screens and the obvious descendants of the Locust.
    And I didn't realise that
    JD's last name was Fenix and that he's Marcus' son. I guess something happened that made Anya able to have kids(she was meant to be unable to have kids according to the novels) or he boinked someone else

    Just watched that video, with the flashlight... And I'm thinking to myself, why the hell hasn't the future invented the CREE style LED torches we use today instead of those pissy wee things they use? :D

    Not to get anal about it, but story wise, this is set about 25 years after a 16 year war against the locust, which was preceded by the 79 year pendulum wars.
    Human technology has been left decimated.

    Obviously these storms are going to factor into the story.
    Maybe a side affect of Adam Fenixs lambent countermeasure?
    Also, notice the statue of Marcus in the background to the left?

    I really can't wait to get my hands on this!!
    I've never been overly fussed with multiplayer.
    I prefer the story.

    Well I'm not going to be able to play the beta, but looks like I'll be picking up a One in time for Christmas!

    Really wasn't expecting it this year. It's a nice surprise.

    Yeah that's what I meant :)

    Changes my whole gaming schedule now. Will be very little sense in me picking up any other games during the Autumn. Gears will rule them all! :D

    They better keep the no HUD option from Gears of War 3 or at least a no HUD but with crosshair option. Don't want it wrecking my plasma if possible. :mad:

    There's always been some form of HUD in all Gears of War games.
    It fades out after reloading, and there's the squad HUD thing that's activated by pressing one of the bumpers, but none of it was ever always present.

    And you'll find with newer plasmas that image retention isn't an issue.
    I've had my Pani plasma for just over 6 years and have never shied away from playing games with permanent HUDs, and I've not got any screen burn/IR.

    I used to have noticeable IR in the early days, like when I'd have BBC1 on in the morning the clock would still be visible when I turned the TV on again in the evening, but it faded very quickly(within about 30 minutes) and it no longer happens.
