Newspaper headline reads "War is Over.

Welcome Gears! Welcome, welcome, welcome!

Today we’re going to be getting down to the nitty gritty and take a look at some things you may have missed within the Gears of War: E-Day trailer and things outside of the trailer that you may have missed! Let’s get stuck right in!

First off, did you know you can get Wishlist Gears of War: E-Day on Steam already? Click here to Wishlist.

We’ve seen a question thrown around over and over, “Is this a reboot? Where’s Gears of War 6?” – But this has actually been answered! Take a look:

“We’re super proud about Gears 4 and Gears 5 and the stories that were told. We’re not retreating from that storyline in any way. But in [this] moment, we had an opportunity to write our next step, and this one just felt too good to miss.”

It’s Image Time

When watching the trailer you might notice the news paper 00:06 seconds in that has the headline: UIR SURRENDERS. WAR IS OVER. You can also see what look to be learning blocks. Now, this could be a completely random home that Marcus and this Locust are playing real life Mortal Kombat in, orrrrr it could be where Dom lives with Maria and their two children Sylvia and Benedicto! If you think about it, the events of Gears of War 1 were 14 years after E-Day and Gears of War: E-Day is set 14 years before Gears of War 1… There’s a chance that they’ve not met their unfortunate fate as of yet and we’ll, possibly, have to play through Dom and Maria losing their two children… But that’s just a theory…

At 00:17 you get a really clear image of the reimagined Locust Drone before the big fight where his face gets all cut up! There’s a few things to notice here. First thing is that there’s cloth covering their hand, but not only that, but their hand seems almost… Human? More so than other iterations anyway. This particular Drone also seems to have leather gauntlets that you can see better in the second image. Over all, the reimagining of this particular seems a little more human and it’s absolutely brutal.

This shot is really good, if you look closely at Marcus’ armour, you’ll actually see tubing running through it! Could we finally get a real explanation as to how Gears don’t melt to death in their super heavy and confined armour? Maybe!

Here’s an even better look at the reimagined Locust Drone stood up.

Seems E-Day may be set within the Kalona District.

While the Locust Drone is munching on some hearty television, you get a little look at the back of Marcus’ armour which seems to include more pipes. The attention to detail is so great!

They don’t show up for long, but you get a full look at Marcus’ COG Tags.

When the Locust Drone attempts to cut Marcus, the glare of the blade seems to go where Marcus will obtain his large iconic scar.

A really subtle thing where if you blink you miss it, is the Retro Lancer’s bayonetted being removed! In the two images below, you’ll see it in it’s locked state vs it’s unlocked state and in the video you see it get removed in one swift motion just before Marcus… ‘Stops’ the Drone.

And we end overlooking the Kalona District. If you look to the right, the dome building looks a little… Familiar, don’t you think?
