Gears of War: E-Day

Gears Of War Prequel, Gears Of War E-Day, Revealed At Xbox Games Showcase

The Gears series is back with Gears of War E-Day. The debut CGI trailer showed off series protagonist Marcus Fenix fighting a Locust in an apartment, barely making it out alive. Marcus takes out the Locust as the ground below him caves, saved by Dom Santiago at the last minute. The title is a prequel, taking us back to Emergence Day, fourteen years before the original Gears of War events. No release window was given.

Gears of War E-Day will launch on Xbox Series and Xbox Game Pass some time in the future.
