New Footage Describes the War in gen:LOCK

Watch the newest footage from gen:LOCK featuring narration by Monica Rial as Colonel Marin, one of the leaders of “the Vanguard.”

“We did not seek this conflict, but we will rise to meet it. The Vanguard will do everything we can to protect those who put their trust in us. Be strong and we will get through this…for the people.”
