The long wait will soon be over for fans of the Gears franchise as Microsoft announced today that the next chapter in the beloved series, Gears of War 4, will be released on October 11 of this year.

First revealed at E3 2015, Gears of War 4 sees the series saga launch into new territory, where a team of new characters -- JD Fenix (Marcus Fenix's son), Delmont Walker and Kait Diaz -- band together to battle a terrifying new threat. Here's a description directly from Microsoft:

Harkening back to the dark and intense roots of the original classic, fans can expect a familiar, yet distinct evolution of gameplay, including brutal and intimate action, a heart-pounding campaign, genre-defining multiplayer and stunning visuals powered by Unreal Engine 4.
