Now Playing: GS News Update: Gears of War 4 Cast Revealed

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

The cover for this month's Game Informer magazine provided a first look at the cast for the upcoming Microsoft shooter Gears of War 4. Set over two decades after Gears of War 3, the game will feature a new slate of characters, including the son of previous protagonist Marcus Fenix. Here's the GI cover image and a few details about the actor's portraying each role.

No Caption Provided
  • JD Fenix (middle): The son of Marcus Fenix. Played by Liam McIntyre
  • Kait Diaz (right): A survivalist who, according to Game Informer, was "raised outside of the walled city-states protecting most of humanity." Played by Laura Bailey.
  • Delmont "Del" Walker (left): An ex-COG soldier and longtime friend of JD. Played by Eugene Byrd.

This month's Game Informer will also include a 14-page cover story with more details about the game and its voice actors.

Gear of War 4 is set to launch sometime later this year. And if you played Gears of War Ultimate Edition on your Xbox Live account sometime before March 1, you're already guaranteed "early access" to the Gears 4 beta when it launches.

So this is what we've come down to...

From the horror-driven "guys with no necks kicking ass" of the first one, down to playing chicks with pink lancers on the 3rd one, and teenagers with a "wannabeecool" visual on the 4th.

Infamous criticize for dark brooding white male character.

Second son praised for teen edgy character.

GoW admired for generic dark brooding character(s).

GoW roasted over teen characters who have more than 1 emotion that isn't sadness.

As someone who's played all the gow and infamous games, that's my opinion, so don't go hiking up your boy shorts calling me the delusional retard over something I feel and analyzed over the years and recently.

I just have one question....okay two; will Carmine be in this game and will he survive?

Avatar image for Grim_Jackal

"JD". They don't even care anymore. No, I'm sorry, JD is a really cool name, it's not 90's lame or anything.

@Grim_Jackal: I can only think of the countless names it could stand John David, Jack Daniel, James Douglas, or even Jack*ss D*ckbag. Then again, the author of a book that I liked was also named "JD", so I'm banking on Jerome David Fenix.

@SpicyRamen10: D stands for Dom.

They just came out of The Walking Dead episode!
Everybody there looks like them :-)

This looks at least more promising than what we saw at the last E3.

Avatar image for may967873

Wtf, Marcus is the man, not sure about this move

Avatar image for kentray1985

@may967873: Cmon dude, everybody has said how they want to see gears grow and move ahead. This is the right move to me. Marcus Fenix started the story but he not the whole gears universe. Gears have many stories to be told.

Please have son(s) of Carmine in Geow 4 XD, that would be awesome.

Avatar image for rosinmonkekyx17

@Ballroompirate: Or that 4th Carmine we never see

Why does Laura Bailey have to be a VA in every game? She's good but doesn't have a very wide range and so when I'm playing Gears I'm just going to hear Lucina and Shaundi.

Now here's a game worth getting excited for!

Avatar image for cboye18

It's like a crossing between Infamous SS and Sunset Overdrive. But seriously, these kids probably can't even wear COG armor properly...

Avatar image for xcrimsonxsynx

@cboye18: Last E3 video they were wearing armor.

@cboye18 well said lol.:

Avatar image for razik

I'm getting a Star Wars vibe from that concept art

Avatar image for kentray1985

@razik: Wow then then that must be a good thing but I dont get why anyone would think of star wars after looking at this concept art.

Avatar image for profchrisk

Andy Diggle and Weather Wizard join forces, not too shabby..
