Believe it or not, the latest game in the Gears of War franchise, Gears 5, is being released in just a few short weeks. A bit of a shock, I know. Unless you’ve been anxiously anticipating and following the game, of course.
For Gamescom 2019, some new trailers have been released. One looks at the game’s single-player campaign story, while the other looks at the Horde Mode. You can find both of those trailers below along with more info on the game and, as an added bonus, videos explaining the various multiplayer modes as well as a promo for the Halo: Reach character pack.
During Microsoft’s E3 2018 briefing a bit of a troll was pulled when the familiar Gears of War symbol, a red skull inside a gear, appeared on the screen and excited the crowd. This excitement quickly died when Funko POP! versions of the characters showed up, and it was revealed that it was for a new mobile game titled Gears POP! instead of the highly anticipated next game in the series.
Thankfully they didn’t toy with the fans’ feelings for too long before it was announced that Gears of War 5, or simply Gears 5 as they’re apparently calling it, was indeed on the way. This was backed up with a pair of announce trailers, which you can find below along with more info on the game.
With just a couple of short weeks until developer The Coalition’s Gears of War 4 hits store shelves, a new 20 minute gameplay video has been released online. We’ve seen some gameplay demos in the past, but in this new video the opening prologue level is played through.
The prologue is set two years before Emergence Day, or E-Day, the massive planet-wide attack on the major cities of the planet Sera committed by the Locust Horde. The original Gears of War was set 14 years after E-Day happened.
You can watch the opening level of Gears of War 4 below.
