For a generation of console shooter fans, Gears of War 2’s Horde Mode was an initiation into the wonderful world of co-op. Teaming up against legions of enemies naturally lends itself to memorable moments, like finally figuring out the perfect way to flawlessly clear a wave of baddies, or wading into a mob of monsters for a desperate last-second revive that results in a clutch victory. After its lamented absence in Gears of War: Judgment, the beloved game mode is back for Gears of War 4. The basic framework is just like you remember – five players against 50 waves of increasingly grueling deathsquads – but there are some key differences in what the developers at The Coalition have dubbed ‘Horde Mode 3.0’. Suffice it to say, this Horde Mode looks like it could be shooterkind’s first M-rated take on tower defense.
