Fast paced, exciting, and at all odds against a swarm of aliens, Gears of War 4 is the best sci-fi war game experience that you can find on the Xbox One. The fourth game in the critically acclaimed Gears of War series has you as the son of Marcus Fenix, the previous main character in the older games.
Gears of War 4 is an over-the-shoulder third person shooter filled with beautiful visuals and set pieces with the constant element of action. Players must work within a squad, fighting through hordes of invading aggressive aliens using weapons like chainsaws, explosive drills, and machine guns. Gears of War 4 features both an online and offline co-op multiplayer story mode too, so you and a friend can battle through the frenzy of aliens and save humanity once and for all.
