The trailer flicks between Marcus Fenix sharing a moment with his wife Anya and their young son, to the - now grown up - JD Fenix running for his life in a dark wood.
The band's frontman, David Draiman, said in a recent interview with Inverse that the trailer gave him chills.
That was no doubt the intention of the director, Henry Hobson, when opting to use Disturbed's emotive cover of the classic Simon & Garfunkel hit.
Have a look for yourself and see if it is indeed chill-worthy.
Draiman went on to say, “It seemed very, very appropriate for the storyline, for what the main character is going through, and it seems to set the stage perfectly."
A big fan of the franchise, Draiman also added, “The storyline was always so dramatic, it really drew you in and kind of helped you role play, so to speak, while you were actually playing the game. I’ve always enjoyed the series, and it’s definitely one of my favorites.”
An open beta is due at the end of the month in which you'll be able to try out the game's multiplayer before it releases on 11 October.
Adam Fletcher, Director of Community for Gears Of War, teased us with an indication that more news will be coming soon.
