LOS ANGELES — A lot of heavy-hitters appeared on behalf of Xbox during the gaming console’s E3 2016 press event, including Gears of War 4. Set to launch October 11, the latest entry in the Gears series takes place 25 years after Gears 3. The Locusts have been all but eradicated, but a new threat is rising to take its place.

This time around, the hero is it’s J.D. Fenix, son of hero Marcus Fenix. I had the opportunity to play through a mission of the new game and I’m happy to report that this is the Gears you know and love with more refined gameplay.
