Video: The executions in Gears of War 4 look brutal. Here is the first one


With every release in the Gears of War franchise something new was always added to attempt an improvement for the series. Gears of War 3 introduced executions. This happens when you’ve downed an enemy that’s still alive and crawling aimlessly waiting to be revived by a companion. Should you get to him before he’s revived you can perform an execution that finishes him off and plays a different animation, depending on the weapon you’ve got equipped. Gears of War 4 is not about to end this trend.

In fact, the executions in Gears of War 4 promises to be quite brutal… and perhaps a little funny for some sadists. The official Xbox Twitter account uploaded the first execution last night on Twitter. Have a look and see for yourself:

Here is a YouTube video for you to replay it over and over:

As it states in the tweet above the Gears of War 4 beta starts on 18 April and the game will launch for Xbox One on 11 October.
