Gears of War is a video game franchise created by Epic Games, developed and managed by The Coalition, and owned and published by Microsoft Studios. The series focuses on the conflict between humanity, the subterranean reptilian hominids known as the Locust Horde, and their mutated counterparts, the Lambent & the Swarm. The franchise consists of five third-person shooter video games, which has also been supplemented by a comic book series and five novels.
Microsoft has just published a new blog post that's revealed a range of notable Xbox statistics and achievements from 2016; almost 400 new games were released for the Xbox One last year and in addition to this, Xbox One owners put in more than 265 million hours for Xbox 360 games through the Backwards Compatibility system.
The developer behind Gears of War 4 has just announced that the game will be getting a competitive multiplayer trial this weekend; this test will determine how The Coalition handles the future competitive multiplayer modes in the future.
Not everyone has upgraded to the Xbox One just yet but these Black Friday deals could be enough to persuade most Xbox 360 gamers who are itching for a new console; the Xbox Scorpio is due for a late 2017 release and rumours suggest that the console will be very expensive due to its 'premium' nature.
