Gears of War: E-Day Announced

Players will be able to experience the brutal horror of Emergence Day through the eyes of Marcus Fenix with the release of The Coalition’s Gears of War: E-Day.

Built from scratch in Unreal Engine 5, Gears of War: E-Day will take place fourteen years before the events of the original Gears of War. 

Players will follow the story of war heroes Marcus Fenix and Dom Santiago as they return home to face the subterranean threat known only as the Locust Horde.

Creative Director Matt Searcy said the following:

“We realized that a lot of the words we use to describe the franchise were what our fans also use, phrases like brotherhood, brutality, pathos, awe. Why E-Day?  That’s the moment it all comes together. It’s the heart of the Gears universe. Everything that happens is shaped by this day.”

Matt Searcy added:

“It’s going to feel like a new Gears game, because that’s what it is. It’s us revisiting the tone and the feeling of what makes Gears great, but we’re tapping into new techniques, new processes, and new technology that’s going to make the gameplay feel better than ever. It’s going to be awesome, a game that feels both truly new, and authentically Gears.”
