need to know about Gears of War 4. Our story picks up 25 years after Marcus Fenix
and the Coalition of Ordered Governments, or COG, destroyed the Locust using his father
Adam’s ultimate weapon, ending their war with Humanity on the planet Sera. Mina Jinn, the new head of the COG, commemorates
the anniversary of the victory, but laments the absence of Marcus, who had become a recluse
after losing his wife, Anya. Meanwhile, Marcus’ son JD, a former COG
Lieutenant, has joined a group of his friends and fellow Outsiders, or those who live outside
of the COG restored city states. These friends include Del Walker, Kait Diaz,
and her uncle Oscar. The group are planning to raid a nearby COG
settlement to steal a device called a fabricator that can create various weapons and defenses. However, they are met with opposition from
robotic security forces called DeeBees. Fighting their way through the city, they
are seemingly aided by the cities machinery until they reach and retrieve the fabricator. During their exit, they are accosted by Jinn,
transmitting via a surrogate DeeBee, who accuses them of kidnapping her people. However, the city’s railcar destroys the
DeeBee and the group is able to escape back to their village with the fabricator. There, they are attacked by the security force,
but they are able to hold them off using the fabricator. Although they escaped the threat, village’s
leader, and Kait’s mother: Reyna, reprimands them for angering Jinn and bringing attention
to them. The group try to explain Jinn’s claim of
kidnapping, but Reyna is too angered to listen. Later that night, the village is attacked
by a group of unknown creatures who begin to capture its inhabitants. Reyna barricades JD, Del, and Kait inside
a barn and takes on one of the humanoid creatures, cutting off it’s hand in the scuffle. Oscar attempts to assist her, but is incapacitated
and abducted by one of the “snatcher” creatures. Reyna is then taken by the creature she was
fighting. Oscar is not killed by the Snatcher, however,
and is able to cut his way out of the creature sometime later, leaving him alone to search
for his comrades. After the creatures leave with the villagers,
JD, Del, and Kait exit the barn to examine the wreckage. JD finds the disembodied hand, and removes
a crystal from it. Del recommends taking it to be examined by
an expert: JD’s father Marcus. JD initially refuses, but eventually concedes
that he might be the only way they can figure out where this new “swarm” of adversaries
came from, and the trio head off to his estate. There, Marcus, still angry at JD for both
joining and subsequently abandoning the COG, recognizes the crystal, but shortly after,
Jinn’s DeeBees arrive. The four escape, and head to Fort Reval, where
Marcus explains they’ll find a dumping ground where the COG left thousands of Locust corpses
that were covered in the same crystals. On their way, the group come across a series
of “pods” containing mutated COG soldiers inside, revealing that the abductions Jinn
was referring to was the Swarm, who were using these pods to harvest humans and transform
them into creatures for their army. The group guess that the Swarm is an evolved
version of the Locust, who instead of dying in the explosion produced by Adam Fenix’s
weapon, instead underwent a slow metamorphosis. Shortly after this discovery, the group is
ambushed and Marcus is captured by a snatcher and taken away. The group then chase the snatcher into a mine
to find that the Swarm have converted it into a hive. There, they fight their way to find a pod
containing Marcus. They cut him out, but unfortunately he is
unresponsive. Luckily, he is able to cough up the fluids
in his lungs and regain consciousness. After he comes to, Marcus reveals that while
in the pod, he was connected to the Swarm’s network and could hear their communications. He explains that they were treating Reyna
differently, and are keeping her at a nearby dam. The group make their way to the second hive,
but after seeing it’s size, take Marcus’ advice to call in backup from a friend of
his by heading to a radio tower in the nearby city of Speyer. On the way, they encounter the Elite who captured
Reyna, who proclaims that she is “right where she belongs”, before the group kill
it and reach Speyer. There, they call in Marcus’ friend, Damon
Baird, the founder of DB Industries and creator of the DeeBee units. He is revealed to be the one who helped out
JD and the group with their battle with Jinn a few days prior. Baird, along with Augustus Cole and Samantha
Byrne, help the group infiltrate the Swarm hive in the dam, including taking down a giant
Swarm creature with the help of Baird’s mech. Inside, the group eventually find Rayna, who
is in the process of being absorbed into the Swarm’s network. Knowing she’ll die, Rayna asks Kait to release
her so she can die before becoming one with the Swarm. Rayna gives Kait a medallion before bidding
their final goodbye, and Kait cuts her down, killing her in the process. Outside, the group reunite and console Kait. She holds up the medallion, claiming that
it belonged to her grandmother, whom she had never met. Upon examining the back-side of it, however,
we see that it bears the symbol of the Locust, revealing Kait to be the granddaughter of
the Locust Queen Myrrah, whom Marcus killed shortly before the end of the war. This ominous note is our last before we pick
the story back up with Kait Diaz taking the helm in Gears of War 5. Hey guys thanks so much for watching this
