The Gears of War Ultimate Edition “Mad World” trailer was released today by Microsoft to kick of the game’s launch next week.
The short trailer for the new Gears of War game features plenty of explosions, gun shots, and chainsaw action. However, one thing is clearly missing. Sound effects. Instead of the sounds of War that you have come to know, the trailer features Gary Jules’ “Mad World.”
Donnie Darko fans unite!
Those of you loyal Gears of War fans will probably remember the marketing campaign from 2006 in which “Mad World” was also played in the background as Marcus Fenix fought for his life.
While this new trailer is obviously a nod to the original trailer of 2006, it shows a very different scene for Fenix. Instead of finding a Corpser in a shelter, the new trailer shows Fenix teaming up with Dom, Baird, Cole, and others to take on a gang of Locust.
