Four years after the last installment in the series, a new Gears of War was announced at the Xbox Showcase. The prequel will tell the story of part one

There is cause for celebration for Gears of War fans:Around four years after the last installment in the series – if you don’t count Tactics, it’s even five – Gears of War is returning with a new title.

At this year’s Xbox Showcase from publisher Microsoft, the prequel with the simple additional titleE-Daywas officially announced.

In the Gears universe,

E-Day stands for the so-called Emergence Day, the day on which the genetically modified Locust first emerged from the earth and threatened the people of Sera.

Series fans may remember: Back in 2006, we were given a glimpse of this day in the legendary Mad World trailer for the first Gears of War. And that’s exactly what the new installment of the series plans to follow – or rather anticipate – in terms of style

Because E-Day is set 14 years before the first Gears of Warand tells the story leading up to its events. In the announcement trailer, the two heroes Marcus Fenix and Dom Santiago can be seen taking on a brutal Locust thug

The two then look down on a burning city to the stylized sounds of a piano version of Mad World. And thanks to the Unreal Engine 5 used, this scenery also looks really chic. But see for yourself, we’ve included the trailer above

The veteran studioThe Coalition, which was also responsible for parts four and five of the series, is once again in charge of development.A release date for E-Day has unfortunately not yet been communicated.It can be assumed that E-Day will be released for PC and Xbox consoles. A PlayStation release is currently still questionable.

In addition, there are currently alsoplans from Netflixto produce a series set in the Gears of War universe.
