One of the most notable environmental effects that you’ll stumble upon often throughout Gears of War 4’s campaign is Windflares. These are intense storms that can greatly affect your field of vision and maneuverability, while also posing a threat thanks to their lethal lightning strikes. Though you’ll most likely be focusing too much on just surviving these dangerous scenarios, take a moment to just check out the lightning bolts in a Windflare.
As each one strikes the floor, you can see many smaller bolts forming alongside it. Each one’s impact on the floor is highlighted by a kick up of light and static dissipating into the atmosphere around it, and the lighting effects as you make your way through each meteorological gauntlet is a sight to be seen. Take a minute to just appreciate it next time… just watch out for those lightning strikes.
