Game Informer revealed via their April issue that Gears of War 4 will feature three playable characters with JD Fenix, the son of Marcus Fenix one of them. Gears of War 4 will be set nearly 25 years after the events of Gears of War 3. The next month of Game Informer has new additional details on Gears 4’s three playable characters, as well as new gameplay systems which include close-cover melee and fierce windstorms which tear across the planet Sera.
Developers, The Coalition told Game Informer that Gears of War 4 will see the new trio JD Fenix, Kait Diaz, and Delmont Walker surviving “one night in the woods” while encountering a lot of terrifying new enemies. Both Del and JD were involved in a “classified incident” which players will learn about throughout Gears of War 4. Gears of War 4 will also support 2-player couch co-op.
JD Fenix, voiced by Liam McIntyre of Spartacus and Flash is the primary protagonist in Gears of War 4, and the son of legendary war hero Marcus Fenix. JD is an idealist who ran away from home at a young age to join the the COG militia only to go AWOL after a classified incident that players will learn more about during the game.
