Mariaaaaa. Mariaaaaa. Braaaaains. Mariaaaaa. Braaaaains. Mariaaaaa braaaaains. Oh, you know it. Zombie Dom would totally eat Maria’s brains. He’s Zombie Dom now, not OMG You Guys Where’s My Wife Dom. All those protective, nurturing instincts are gone, replaced by the simple impulse to feed on living flesh. He’d probably eat Marcus’s brains too, actually. If Marcus didn’t gib him with a Gnasher first.
Which he would. He’s Marcus. Look at that badass. He’s got a beard now and everything.
Ahead of the game’s launch in October, Microsoft has revealed the Gears of War 4 “Brothers to the End Elite Gear Pack” pre-order bonus, which features the Gold Wave Lancer and Gold Wave Gnasher custom weapon skins, plus three series-classic characters for multiplayer:
- “Tomorrow Anya” is named after her famous words following the end of the Locust War (“Tomorrow Marcus. We finally have a tomorrow.”) Her appearance is based on her look in the Gears of War 4 television commercial, “Tomorrow,” where she was introduced as the mother of JD Fenix.
- “Old Man Marcus” features an older Marcus Fenix as unveiled in the E3 2016 media briefing demo. Twenty-five years after the Locust War, Marcus and the COG have long since parted ways. His facial hair has grown long and his COG regulation kit has been replaced with by civilian clothes.
- “Zombie Dom” proves there’s no keeping a good solider down, at least in the form of this character skin created as tribute to Marcus’ dearly departed best friend Dominic Santiago.
Other pre-order bonuses previously announced include the Vintage Del character, and the first four Gears of War games (Gears of War, Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3 and Gears of War: Judgment) originally launched on Xbox 360 to play on Xbox One. NICE.
