Microsoft unveiled Gears of War 4 during its E3 2015 press conference, highlighting some gameplay footage from the newly announced game.

Set to release in Holiday 2016, the game appears to feature a new set of protagonists (though they don’t look all that different from the bulky space marines of the Gears games of old), and it also appears to have dropped the “of War” part of their title, with it instead being called Gears 4. What, no Gears of Four?

The game rounded off Microsoft’s E3 2015 press conference, along with the confirmation that the first Gears of War game will be remastered and brought to the Xbox One under the title Gears of War: Ultimate Edition.
