Microsoft has posted a new teaser video for tomorrow night's Gears of War 4 reveal. Released on Twitter, the video shows Gears of War 4's main characters standing in front of a statue of Marcus Fenix, the hero of the past three mainline entries. Check it out:

Among the cast for Gears of War 4 is JD Fenix, the son of Marcus Fenix. However, specific story details, including how Marcus Fenix's legacy will factor into the game, remains to be seen.

As announced previously, the new Gears of War 4 reveal is scheduled for sometime during the Fear the Walking Dead season two premiere tomorrow night at 9 PM EST on AMC.

On April 7, Microsoft launched a teaser website featuring a countdown clock set to end on Monday, April 11. People on NeoGAF pored over the site's source code and found a reference to something called "The Nightmare Reborn," along with two videos, each of which showcases a downed plane in a lightning storm.

A teaser clip for the announcement released on April 8 showed Gears of War 4's main characters running through the woods while being hunted down by monsters.

Gears of War 4 is scheduled to launch on October 11 for Xbox One. A PC version may also be released, but nothing has been confirmed at this stage. In other news, it's been confirmed that the game will offer split-screen play for multiplayer, though frame rate drops to 30 FPS when playing this way.

The Gears of War 4 multiplayer beta will begin later this month--check out this post to find out how to get in. On the subject of multiplayer, producer Rod Fergusson recently said Gears of War's multiplayer--since Gears of War 1--has been "under-served," and explained why Gears of War 4 will change that.
