Gears of War is, without a doubt, one of the most popular video games series among those who love the third-person shooter genre. The first entry in the series, Gears of War, was published in 2006 for the Xbox 360 and a port for Microsoft Windows was released in 2007. Years have passed, and we’re now waiting for Gears 5, the next installment in the series. Microsoft presented more details on the game during E3 2019, and here’s everything we know.
The original game was conceived by and developed by Epic Games, and the legendary Cliff Bleszinski was the lead designer. The initial concept was named Unreal Warfare, a name which hints that the title was envisioned as a possible Unreal Tournament spin-off. While the title didn’t come with significant innovations, the amount of polish and the excellent gameplay experience attracted near-universal acclaim from reviewers and players alike. Three sequels and a prequel were released by 2016.
A large number of details about Gears 5 was shared during Microsoft’s E3 2019 conference. A noticeable change can be spotted when you look at the name since the ‘’of War’’ part has disappeared.
Here’s Everything About Gears 5 As Revealed During E3 2019
Gears 5 Release Date
Microsoft announced that the game would be released on September 1th0, 2019, three days before the anticipated release of Borderlands 3.
The storyline of Gears 5
The title will continue the story introduced by Gears of War 4, with the return of the main protagonists – JD, Marcus Fenix, Kait Diaz, and Delmon Walker. At one point Kait and Demon will follow a lead which may offer more information about Kait’s Locust legacy. Kait will play a significant role in the narrative, and head of The Coalition stated that the story mode would be the longest in the series.
At E3, a large variety of in-game enemies were teased. The Locust remain the main antagonist, and one of them sported a gory look in the form of a fleshy amalgamation of bits stolen from other enemies.
Players will get a chance to the multiplayer “versus” mode experience on July 17th. Those who pre-order the title or opt for the Game Pass will enjoy first dibs of the competitive multiplayer that Gears 5 would offer.
