Microsoft have revealed the Gears of War 4 launch trailer. The trailer starts with the all too familiar gravelly voice of Marcus Fenix setting the scene. It’s been 25 years since the events of Gears of War 3, and in that time some sense of normality has returned to the world. Marcus has a son, JD, who he almost literally passes the baton to before scenes showing Marcus in mortal danger.

After once again highlighting some of the foes they will face, the video follows the new gang as they tackle a variety of explosive situations in an attempt to rescue the ones they love. There’s even a cameo from Augustus Cole. All aboard the Cole-Train baby!

Gears of War 4 is available worldwide on October 11 on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC as an Xbox Play Anywhere title. Buying the Gears of War 4: Ultimate Edition allows you to play four days early, starting October 7.
