Gears of War 4 is likely one of the most anticipated Xbox One exclusives to be released later this year, and if you didn’t pre-order the game yet Microsoft is now giving you even more incentives to do so. A new blog post on Xbox Wire explains that everyone who pre-orders the game will get the “Brothers to the End Elite Gear Pack” including unique characters, weapons skins and more.
To be clear, the new pre-order bonus will be available for all new and current Gears of 4 pre-order customers. Here is what’s included in the pack:
- Three unique characters:
- “Tomorrow Anya” is named after her famous words following the end of the Locust War (“Tomorrow Marcus. We finally have a tomorrow.”) Her appearance is based on her look in the Gears of War 4 television commercial, “Tomorrow,” where she was introduced as the mother of JD Fenix.
- “Old Man Marcus” features an older Marcus Fenix as unveiled in the E3 2016 media briefing demo. Twenty-five years after the Locust War, Marcus and the COG have long since parted ways. His facial hair has grown long and his COG regulation kit has been replaced with by civilian clothes.
- “Zombie Dom” proves there’s no keeping a good solider down, at least in the form of this character skin created as tribute to Marcus’ dearly departed best friend Dominic Santiago.
- The previously announced Vintage Del Pack, which includes the Vintage Del character model and retailer-specific bonus items, including unique weapon skins.
- The Gold Wave Lancer and Gold Wave Gnasher — updated versions of the gold weapon skins awarded to the series’ most-dedicated day one players.
- The entire Xbox 360 Gears of War collection for use on Xbox One. This includes all four previous games: Gears of War, Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3 and Gears of War: Judgment.
All these new goodies seem like a very good value, and if you didn’t play previous Gears of War games this is a good opportunity to get them all for free. Gears of War 4 will be released on October 11 and you can pre-order the Standard Edition or the Ultimate Edition (which includes the game’s Season Pass) from the download links below.
