Gears of War is an iconic game franchise first developed by Epic Games (now developed and managed by The Coalition) and is currently owned by Microsoft Studios. First installment was released in November 2006 for Xbox 360 and the franchise currently boasts 4 games, with the fifth one, Gears of War 4, set to be released on October 11th, 2016.
In anticipation of this new game, I decided to bring you some of the best upcoming Gears of War 4 merchandise.
Xbox One S Limited Edition
Gears of War is an Xbox exclusive, so you cannot play it on any other console or computer (except Windows 10). All previous Gears of War games are now backwards compatible, so if you own the game for Xbox 360, you can still play it on Xbox One! Microsoft came out with a limited edition Xbox One S + controller bundle. You can pre-order Xbox One S 2TB Console – Gears of War 4 Limited Edition Bundle at Amazon.
If you cannot afford a new console but still would like Gears of War themed controller, you can pre-order this Xbox Wireless Controller – Gears of War 4 Crimson Omen Limited Edition at Amazon.
If you can’t wait to get your pre-ordered items, you can order some of these posters which are already available for sale. 16.5″ x 11.7″ JD Fenix poster, 16.5″ x 11.7″ Gears of War 4 logo poster, 24″ x 36″ Gears of War 4 poster (or the horizontal 34″ x 22″version).
Are you in love with the entire franchise and don’t want to miss any exclusives? Then this Gears of War 4: Collector’s Edition – Outsider Variant is exactly the thing for you! In this premium packaged box you will find the Gears of War 4 Ultimate Edition SteelBook (physical disk) + Season Pass, allowing you to play the game 4 days before the official launch.
Next the box contains JD Fenix on COG Bike Premium Statue Outsider Variant action figure (19″ x 11″), Frag Grenade Keychain (6″), Exclusive Lithograph and in-game bonus of 3 Gears Crates.
If you are a book worm, need help with the game or just want to appreciate the art of Gears of War 4, you’d want to pre-order these books! The Art of Gears of War 4, Gears of War 4: Prima Collector’s Edition Guide and Gears of War 4: Prima Official Guide.
There is no complete soundtrack for the game as of right now but you can buy the song that was used in the ‘Tomorrow’ trailer. Originally sung by Simon & Garfunkel, The Sound of Silence is a famous song. However, this is a cover by the american metal band Distrubed (from their album ‘Immortalized’) with rock theme. In my opinion it gives the song more urgency and it’s easily one of my favorite covers. You can get The Sound of Silence by Disturbed on Amazon.
Here is the Gears of War 4 trailer ‘Tomorrow’:
