Gears of War 4 Is "Mind-Blowing," Xbox Exec Says



The Coalition producer Rod Fergusson recently showed off Xbox One action Gears of War 4 for Xbox marketing executive Aaron Greenberg and it apparently went well...very well.

Greenberg replied, saying his "mind was blown" by what he saw. He also went on to say that Gears of War 4 is in "very good hands" at The Coalition and teased the game's upcoming beta (via DualShockers).

There is no word yet regarding what the Gears of War 4 beta will entail, though considering it's starting in the upcoming months, we'd expect to learn more soon. You needed to have played Gears of War Ultimate Edition on Xbox One before March 1 to receive early access.

The full Gears of War 4 is due out this fall, a release window it shifted to from holiday 2016. We still don't know much about the game at all, though Xbox executive Phil Spencer recently saw the game and reported that it's making "stunning" progress.

In other recent news, producer Rod Fergusson said Gears of War 4 would be a "graphical showcase" for Xbox One.

"Like how the original Gears of War was a visual showcase for the Xbox 360, Gears of War 4 will be a graphical showcase for the Xbox One," Fergusson said.

Gears of War 4 is the first brand-new entry in the Gears of War series from Microsoft following its acquisition of the brand from Epic Games in January 2014.

Additionally, the Ultimate Edition launched for PC through Windows 10 earlier this week.
