Gears of War 4 trailer Disturbed the Sound of Silence

In order to attempt to recreate the magic of the first Gears of War trailer “Mad World.” Microsoft released a brand new trailer for Gears of War 4 which features Distrubed’s masterful cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence.”

The video, which premiered last night during AMC’s Fear The Walking Dead, introduces us to JD Fenix, the son of Gears of War protagonist Marcus Fenix, as well as a new monstrous threat. While nothing was mentioned about these new adversaries, they do look very nasty and extremely feral. Here we though Locus was the worst to worry about on Sera.

Gears 4 is set to launch later this year on Oct 11th, and will feature a new cast of characters. The Open Beta for the upcoming cover-based shooter will begin later this month with “early access” starting April 18 for those who played Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on Windows PC or Xbox One. For the rest of us, the beta will open on April 25. The beta will run until May 1.
