Gears of War 4 is gearing up for launch later this year. As the final cogs are being put into place, Microsoft has announced the bonuses that will be coming with a preorder.
The Brothers to the End Elite Gear Pack will feature three different characters, as well as two gun skins for use in multiplayer. The characters will be an older, post-COG Marcus, a zombie Dominic Santiago and Anya as she looks in a commercial spot for GoW4. The character descriptions as provided by Microsoft are:
Tomorrow Anya is named after her famous words following the end of the Locust War (“Tomorrow Marcus. We finally have a tomorrow.”) Her appearance is based on her look in the Gears of War 4 television commercial, “Tomorrow,” where she was introduced as the mother of JD Fenix.
Old Man Marcus features an older Marcus Fenix as unveiled in the E3 2016 media briefing demo. Twenty-five years after the Locust War, Marcus and the COG have long since parted ways. His facial hair has grown long and his COG regulation kit has been replaced with by civilian clothes.
Zombie Dom proves there’s no keeping a good solider down, at least in the form of this character skin created as tribute to Marcus’ dearly departed best friend Dominic Santiago.
The gun skins are two Gold Wave skins for the Lancer and the Gnasher, described as, “updated versions of the gold weapon skins awarded to the series’ most-dedicated day one players.”
The bonuses come in addition to all that have previously announced.
Gears of War 4 is set for release on October 11, 2016.
