Gears of War 4 - Xbox One
Gears of War 4 is the fourth main game in the series and aside from some early work it no longer involves the original developer Epic Games for the first time. It is set 25 years after the end of the Pendulum Wars between the Coalition of Ordered Governments (COG) and the Union of Independent Republics, the two superpowers of the planet Sera who fought for control over the natural resource "immulsion". Three of these battles are part of the interactive introduction mission of the game. The war was ended when COG gained the advantage, but it was immediately followed by a Locust attack on what is known as Emergence Day or E-Day. This ended in the destruction of all immulsion resources with the Imulsion Countermeasure weapon, which also took out the Locust and the Lambent. The aftermath has led to a society with a reformed COG with only hundreds of thousands of humans left, but void of fossil fuel and with powerful "windflare" storms that form across the planet Sera where the game takes place. To prevent the population from declining, cities are now walled off to prevent against outside danger. This has also led to the formation of Outsiders. These are survivors that reject the COG rule and live outside of the jurisdiction, conducting raids for resources.
