Microsoft unveils the next Gears of War

Xbox 360's greatest cover shooter is back

Microsoft has unveiled the next chapter in the Gears of War series.

Teaser art over at Game Informer suggests that the game is set before the events of Gears of War 3, with Locust Reavers clearly visible in the background.

In the foreground: a chap in glowing blue handcuffs, flanked by COG soldiers. All very mysterious. Expect more details at Microsoft's E3 conference next week.
