Gears of War 4 is due out in October with all sorts of treats for the kiddies that pre-order. Those that pitch their lot in early will be given skins that pay homage to the Gears franchise. These even include the traditional Gold Skin Lancer, because who doesn’t like a 24 karat gold chainsaw kiss?
Pre-ordering early birds will receive:
- “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.
The Elite Gear pack also includes the Gold Wave Lancer and Gold Wave Gnasher — updated versions of the gold weapon skins awarded to the series’ most-dedicated day one players.
All pre-orders of Gears Of War 4 will also come with the Xbox 360 Gears collection: Gears of War, Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3, and Gears of War Judgment. Gears of War 4 is all set for its October 11, 2016 release.
