June 10, 2024 by Alex Novichenko

The Gears of War franchise is expanding with the announcement of Gears of War: E-Day, a prequel set at the dramatic beginning of the epic saga when the Locust first emerged. Although no release date has been confirmed, it has been announced that the game will debut on Game Pass.

The reveal came with a cinematic trailer, set to a melancholic rendition of "Mad World"—a song synonymous with the franchise's most iconic trailers. This choice hints at a deep, emotional exploration of the series' early days and its original characters.
