New Gears Of War 4 Footage Shows Off Brutal Knife Kill

I think Microsoft want you to know that Gears of War 4 is coming out soon. They’ve been releasing a series of cool gameplay clips, and this latest video showcases how you can get handy with a knife.


In true Gears of War fashion, it ain’t pretty. Your character is able to vault from behind cover, boot the enemy in the face, and then slice him up real nice. It’s a pretty sharp move.


This video follows a few from earlier this week that showcase all the grisly ways you’re able to dispose of enemies. I have to give a special shout out to one move where you stab an enemy in the forehead with a knife, if only because they’ve called it “Unicorn-ing“, which is amazing.

Anyway, watch the brief (but violent) clip below.


Gears of War 4 launches on Xbox One in October, but there’s an open multiplayer beta for you to get stuck into on April 18.
