All right, Gears fans, it’s happened. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Rod Fergusson, the studio head of The Coalition, has given us a lot to think about including the moment we’ve all been waiting for, the release date of Gears of War 4.

Here are the goods:

Gears of War 4 will be released on October 11th for the Xbox One.

It will take place 25 years from the end of Gears 3. The main character is JD Fenix, the son of Marcus, who is taking up the war heroing business. JD is intended to be a younger hero in his twenties, which will allow the story of Gears of War 4 to have more of an impact on his growth and personality as a character.

Fergusson also reaffirmed that this game is going to move slightly into the horror-action genre in how they are implementing tension and suspense. But if you think that means there is going to be a huge shift in gameplay don’t worry. Fergusson had this to say on the shift: “We’ll never be a survival horror game. When you have guys this big with chainsaw bayonets, you can never disempower them enough.”

So there we are Gears heads. We are on the precipice of chainsaw bayonetting fun once again.
