Gears of War 4 was officially announced at last year’s E3, but since then we’ve heard next to nothing about the game. That’s all about to change considering it’s Gameinformer’s cover story for this month’s edition of the magazine.
The story in Gears of War 4 takes place 25 years after the events of Gears of War 3 and features a whole new cast of characters, including the son of Marcus Fenix.
The first character that was revealed by Gameinformer is JD Fenix, who is the main protagonist of the game. “JD is an idealist who ran away from home at a young age to join the the COG militia only to go AWOL after a classified incident that players will learn more about during the game,” said Gameinformer.
Next up is Kait Diaz. Kait “was born and raised outside of the walled city-states protecting most of humanity,” describes Gameinformer. “Her parents were leaders of this group of Outsiders, but her father died tragically years ago. Kait isn’t familiar with how the COG works, but she is a capable survivalist who forms a quick friendship with JD.”
Finally we have Delmont “Del” Walker. Del is an “ex-COG soldier,” according to Gameinformer. “Del was an orphan who became friends with JD at boarding school. When JD ran off to join the Army, Del followed his lead. Unfortunately, Del was also involved with the classified incident that sent both of them running out into the wilds of Sera, seeking refuge among the Outsiders.”
As for the actors behind these characters? JD will be played by Liam McIntyre who played the role of Spartacus in the hit-TV show on Starz. Kait is played by Laura Bailey who was the voice of Olympia Vale in Halo 5: Guardians and Del is played by Eugene Byrd who acted Marcus Boone in Battlefield: Hardline.
