Horde 3.0 marks the return of the popular multiplayer survival mode that pits up to five players against waves of enemies – a genre that Gears of War helped popularise with the release of Gears of War 2 in 2009. Horde is back for the first time in 5 years and it’s bigger and better than before.
Horde 3.0 introduces some modern touches such as classes, abilities and fortifications, there are also new classes of enemies, including the Swarm and the DeeBees. The new class-based system lets you choose from five variations of roles – Soldier, Sniper, Scout, Heavy and Engineer. –The all-new “Fabricator” is a deployable base of operations that allows players to build their defences anywhere on the map and execute their defensive strategy with precision.
The new trailer reveals a new partnership between Run the Jewels and Xbox with a sneak-peak from their highly-anticipated third studio album, Run the Jewels 3, the follow up to their breakthrough sophomore release, RTJ2.
Later this year, Killer Mike and El-P will forever become part of the Gears family by appearing as multiplayer characters in the game. The duo will bring their brutal intensity and ‘can’t nobody save us but us’ attitude to “Gears of War 4” multiplayer.
