The new Gears of War 4 trailer is a haunting classic


Gears of War certainly knows how to make your spine tingle. 

Back in 2006 when the first game was attempting to fight Halo for the title of "Reason to own an Xbox", the fledgling shooter released a cinematic trailer soundtracked by Michael Andrews and Gary Jules' haunting Mad World. It was a master stroke, a stark contrast to standard video game ads that helped it sell a million copies in its first two weeks of release.

Gears of War 4's latest trailer is looking to repeat the magic, using Disturbed's chilling version of Simon & Garfunkle’s Sound of Silence. Set 25 years after the events of Gears of War 3, spurred by a series of strange disappearances, JD Fenix must embrace his father’s legacy and battle a new enemy. With massive guns.

Gears of War 4 is set to arrive on Xbox One on 11 October

I went in search of the last trainers still hooked on Pokémon Go

Can the app still draw mass crowds one year on, or is it all just Pokemon G(h)o-st towns now?
