The game includes new features, like windstorms that blow your bullets around or blow away your cover, and new weapons, like the Dropshot which sees a grenade boring itself into either the ground or the enemies you hit.Gears of War 4 also has a robust multiplayer offering which includes both co-op and versus game modes. Notably, the game is set to always run at 60 fps during multiplayer no matter which console or PC you’re playing it on. It also has a revamped Hoard mode where you can build defensive weapons and fortifications anywhere you need it.

There will also be a special Gears of War Xbox Elite wireless controller to go with the game.
