Cliffy B gets emotional over Gears 4 trailer
Cliff Bleszinski was one of the people behind the creation of the original Gears of War game and he's reacted to the trailer for the latest release
Gears of War 4 is coming and the marketing campaign is starting to amp up with the release of a stunning CG trailer a few days ago. Here it is to remind you.
Yep - great music, great concept and the use of the original character of Marcus Fenix in happier times to introduce the world to his son, JD. It's also got a very strong emotional core, something which we haven't really seen in a Gears game before and that hopefully will be retained in the full game later this year. The trailer is stirring stuff, and it even got to Cliff Bleszinski , the developer who worked on the very first Gears of War more than 10 years ago.
This made me misty. Even calling it "tomorrow" as in "we have a tomorrow" - that's what JD is to Marcus. Oh man. https://t.co/TPNNFMbzyz— Cliff Bleszinski (@therealcliffyb) April 11, 2016
It is a great trailer, and the promo activity for the Gears series has always been pretty spectacular. Translating that to strong stories has always been more of a problem and Gears of War 4 has a lot of weight on its shoulders as it looks to reinvent the series with new characters for a new generation of gamers. No pressure.
Gears of War 4 is on Xbox One on the 11th of October 2016.
