Description

Gears of War 4 is a third-person shooter developed by Gearbox Studios and published by Microsoft Studios. The game takes place 25 years after the events of Gears of War 3. The story revolves around J. D. Fenix, the son of Marcus Fenix from the previous installments, who has to fight a new alien force known as The Swarm. Alongside with his father and couple of crewmates, they set out to combat the alien threat.

The gameplay is very similar to the previous Gears of War titles, with linear levels and third person perspective. You play as J. D., can switch between a variety of particularly violent weapons, such as a massive damage close-range shotgun or a saw blade shooter, and slaughter enemies with the help of a classic Gears of War cover system.

Recommendation

Gears of War 4 received critical acclaim, with many believing it is on par in quality with the previous titles in the series. The game’s environment design and the varied color palette was a welcome change from the steel and alien environments the series is usually known for. The multiplayer is more of an evolution rather than revolution, and it’s good that it is so - with the usual, high octane, highly violent fighting the series is known for.

Key store recommendations

Key resellers are sites that sell game keys at (usually) much lower prices than traditional retailers. They do this through a combination of ways, like selling keys that come in a bundle, that were on a sale and many other ways.

The reason why we separated them from traditional retailers is that these stores have been the subject of a divisive discussion for a long time.

The reason we include them is that you can buy keys on these sites usually for very big discounts, sometimes quite ridiculously cheap. In 99 % of cases, they will work the same as a much more expensive key would. For many people, especially people from countries with lower standards of living, this can mean big savings that have a significant impact on their life, while also playing the game and not resorting to piracy.

If you are buying on these stores, we have a few recommendations to follow:

  1. Just know there is a tiny risk. Either your purchase will fail and you will use your money, or that the key you recieved won't work. It has never happened to us or anyone we know, but it has certainly happened to a number of people on the internet. That is partly the nature of the business, partly un-consumer business practices of some of the stores. In 99.9 % of cases, the purchase will be ok, but sometimes it won't.
  2. If the price is not cheaper on key stores (it almost always is, though), then we recommend to buy from the traditional, established retailers.
  3. If it is a store with multiple sellers with ratings, always pick the one with the highest number of sold keys and ratings. The probability of a successful purchase is much higher if buying from a reputable key seller.
