Gears of War 4 is the fourth installment of the Gear of War franchise that has been developed by The Coalition and that was release by Microsoft Studios. The game was made available for Microsoft Windows and Xbox One. The game can be characterized as a third-person shooter game and it became very popular soon after the release in late 2016. The first major difference between this installment and all the previous ones is that this is the first installment that is not developed by Epic Games and it that can be seen when you start playing the game. According to some reports, many fans of games like this have made up their mind that Gears of War is the best third-person shooter game that has been released so far.
25 Years After
The game is set 25 years after the events of the previous installments in which Imulsion Countermeasure weapon was used in order to destroy all Imulsion that was on the planet Sera. Additionally this move caused humanity to adjust to a new way of life because this weapon also took down all the fossil fuels on the planet. The main characters in this game are J.D. Fenix (son of Any Stroud and Marcus Fenix), Del Walker and Kait Diaz. The game is played through the perspective of J.D. Fenix and through playing we witness his struggles. Since there was a change in regards to the company that developed the game, every fan did not know what to expect from the latest version. Being fans of the previous versions many though that there is a strong possibility that the change of creators might ruin this franchise.
Those fans who expect to see completely new Gear of Wars installment will be disappointed because the latest version kept all the good features from the previous versions and the touch that Epic Games put in all the versions of this franchise is even felt in the latest version of the game. However, The Coalition, developing company, managed to introduce new elements that made this game even more appealing. In regards to the single-player campaign we can notice that new main enemies in the game are totally different than enemies from the previous version of the game and because of that it will require new approach and new tactics in defeating those enemies. Besides the enemies, the refreshment was also done on the weapons. The new weapons somehow fit perfectly in the already established world of the Gears of War franchise. These new weapons are available for gamers whatever campaign they choose, whether it is a single-player or a multiplayer it makes no difference.
Single-player and Multiplayer Experiences
When we talk about the single-player campaign it must be said that the gameplay in this campaign is truly amazing and that the design was lifted to high level. Additional advantage of this installment is that it is developed in way that it enables players to play in the multiplayer campaign with other players who are not using Xbox One but rather PCs. The improvement in the graphics segment is seen clearly in the moments of bad weather. In those moments gamers will be able to see all the details and effort that creators have put into creating this game. In regards to the multiplayer campaigns, we can say that the game provides big number of modes in which gamers can play this game. We did not witness any major improvement of the multiplayer campaign but what we did notice were the small improvements that made this campaign even more interesting. While playing in this campaign games will have dozens of maps at their disposal and which they can use.
However, despite all of this, probably the best multiplayer mode in this game is Horde mode. This mode enables five players to play at the same time. When you kill an enemy in this mode they will throw away their weapons and gamers will have to pick it up and take it to the Fabricator, a place where objects on the map are being constructed. Besides this, this game also includes the story that has become really important factor in games like this one. It will take the gamers on a ride full of twist and turns and that will be one of the reasons why fans will like this installments equally as the previous ones, if not even more. Unlike some similar games that do not put a lot of emphasis on the story, Gears of War 4 made the story of the crucial elements in the game.
In comparison to the previous Gears of War installments, the fourth installment is actually a bit faster and that might be a surprise for many players. However, that does not mean that the quality of the game is suffering because of that. Some of us may be surprise with that but the only reason for that is that he have got accustomed to the slow-pace rhythm of the previous versions of the game. Another feature that might be a bit surprising to the fans of the previous installments is the type of enemy in this game. In the previous game, the enemy Locus Horde, as we all know, was completely destroyed. In order to develop the new game, The Coalition had to come up with the new enemy and the new enemy in the 2016 version of the game are robots. This might be big shift from the previous games but do not judge this feature before you actually take up playing this game.
Gears of War franchise has set the pole very high for any future games from this genre. Sometimes it seems that even they cannot reach that pole but on the other hand, with every new installment of this franchise we are always convinced otherwise. Good graphics, amazing background story, very good animation, and good sound effects are just some of the features that make this game one of the most popular third-person shooter game in the market. Whether or not you were a fan of the previous installments from this franchise you will most definitely be a fan of the Gears of War 4.
