New Gears of War 4 Reveal During This Sunday's Fear the Walking Dead

Fans should keep their eyes peeled, as even more details may follow on Monday, April 11.


Far from slowing down, the Gears of War 4 hype train continues to barrel full-steam ahead. We learned earlier this week that the game will launch on October 11 of this year, and that owners of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition will be privy to a beta that begins April 18. Today, developer The Coalition and publisher Microsoft Studios dropped a short-but-sweet teaser, and word that another reveal is on deck for this Sunday's season premiere of Fear the Walking Dead on AMC.

Fear the Walking Dead's season two premiere starts at 9pm Eastern. Be there or be zombie food.

Coalition and Microsoft have even more excitement planned for Monday morning. Community director Adam Fletcher took to Twitter and promised "amazing" new info due out on Monday. Fletcher's tease lines up with a countdown clock on the official Gears of War website—which, if our calculations are correct, should strike zero on Monday.

All signs point to Sunday's and/or Monday's reveal having to do with something referred to as "The Nightmare Reborn." Some sleuths over on NeoGAF dug through the official website's guts and uncovered that text, as well as references to a couple of videos.

Fans are dissecting "The Nightmare Reborn" as we speak. It could be a reference to narrative arcs you'll follow through the campaign, or perhaps an official subtitle. Time (and Sunday evening and Monday morning) will tell.
