“One more thing” from the Xbox Games Showcase, Gears of War: E-Day obviously caught the attention of all fans of the franchise. If the return of Dom and Marcus could not have left them unmoved, the promise of a return to their roots obviously also resonated greatly with them. On this subject, while we already knew a ton of information about the title, a new burst of details has just been shared.

Gears of War E-Day: history, Unreal Engine 5, ambitions… here’s everything we know!

New details on Gears of War: E-Day

Stephen Totilo of Game File was able to discuss in a collective interview with Nicole Fawcette, the director of the franchise, the opportunity to learn more about Gears of War: E-Day. She revealed a few things that should please longtime fans!

This new opus intends to embrace “the brutality of Gears” while taking care to punctuate the adventure with “sadness” and “the melancholy atmosphere”. Like the previous games, this one will of course be spectacular. Indeed, “it wouldn’t be Gears if it didn’t have over-the-top action, a sort of action spectacle.”

We clearly understood it with the very first trailer, it will be about “never fighting alone”. This statement has always resonated in the franchise, notably thanks to a multitude of playable cooperative modes. Note also that this is a slogan used by The Coalition as part of a prevention initiative against suicide and loneliness. In fact, 1% of franchise profits are used for this cause.

Also, the interview with Nicole Fawcette revealed that this new opus will take place in the city of Kalona and that we can expect to see it destroyed thanks to the use of Unreal Engine 5. Finally, it has been confirmed that the game will be linear and that heavy themes will be there.

It will certainly take a lot of patience before getting a new glimpse of Gears of War: E-Day. Indeed, no release period was mentioned, or even any platform.
