You can probably guess by the headline what the main character’s last name in Gears of War 4 will be – and no, it’s not Carmine.


According to the latest cover reveal for Game Informer, this character is none other than Marcus Fenix’s son, JD Fenix.

Set 25 years after Gears of War 3, JD apparently ran away from home to join the COG militia and goes AWOL after a “classified incident” which will be revealed through gameplay.

Two other playable characters were also revealed to the magazine by the game’s developer The Coalition: Kait Diaz and Delmont “Del” Walker.

Liam McIntyre (Spartacus) takes on the role of JD in the game, Laura Bailey (World of Warcraft) plays Diaz, and Walker is played by Eugene Byrd (Battlefield Hardline).

The article goes on to state the studio is taking the fourth outing back to its “darker, horror-themed roots.”

Gears of War 4 will host a multiplayer beta this spring and is set for a full release this fall on Xbox One. It will feature two player couch co-op and a new close-cover melee system.
