I loved Co-oping Gears with my brother and friends. I wish more games would do co-op campaigns. So I hope this game lives up to the hype.

^This!!
There are not enough games doing this at the moment! Games that do this like gears, halo and the first resistance were awesome fun with couch co-op. It just seems like it's a dying feature :(

I'm a big fan of gears and I've been hyped for this since i heard rod was going to be working with the amazing talents at blacktusk. They've also got some key guys from irrational games working there now. I've got high hopes for this game. Can't wait to know more. Hopefully at e3 next year.

I haven't played a gears game since the first one. Though I played a little multi player from the third I think. I'm a PS gamer primarily and sold my 360 early on last gen. Regretting that decision now because I'm looking to buy another one to play all the games that I missed! Any game suggestions would be appreciated :P

On Topic:
I'm sure gears will deliver this gen, as far as I know It's been a solid series and from my experience I really enjoyed the first one. I would imagine it's going to look great too. It's one of Xbox's big hitters so I can't imagine anything less than awesome :)

I don't know about there being a hype for it. I loved the first game, the second one was okay, but that was it. Third and after were not good at all.

The fact that People can fly/Epic Poland are not making this one gives me hope. Also the fact that Rod is back at the helm and has acknowledged that they went in the wrong direction with Judgement gives me hope as well.

I am hoping that the backlash towards Judgments multiplayer have have a similar outcome to what happened with 343i on Halo 4. Everything they have detailed about Halo 5 multiplayer shows they have listened and learned from there mistakes and hopefully Black tusk will do the same (even if there aren't there mistakes).

i was about to say the same thing its barely any hype at all for this game. i dont even remember when was the last article on this site. dont mean to be off topic but if you said a ps exclusive with on gameplay or info it would be hyped through the roof.

I really need a next gen Gears. For me all the next gen shooters, have so far missed the spot to keep me playing. Gears i played for hours and hours and rarely got bored playing online.

dont have high hopes for this franchise at all.
castillo  +   17d ago
Someone care to explain what hype, cause for the life of me have no clue what it looks like or how it plays. Some how it has hype.

Ppl just hype them selves too much now a days you just end up ruining it for your self.

We know nothing of the game and your already asking if it will live up to a hype... I'd be willing to bet it will not live up to your hype...

I have a friend that over hypes everything. Destiny is his most recent over hype. I don't doubt that it will be a great game, he just expects it to be god like or something as with every game he gets hyped for. Can't wait to hear him complain, ugh.

Hype for a game that hasn't been announced and won't be with the original developer because they thought about making it multipat for two minutes before MS bought it...I honestly didn't realize there was hype.
Darkwatchman  +   17d ago
It HAS been announced to be in development...
christocolus  +   17d ago
@summons

Wth? Epic was going to keep GOW aside to work on other things and MS decided to pick it up after all it has always been an xbx exclusive game. Have you even played any gow game?cos you seem upset. why would you even be hyped for a game when you obviously seem to dislike MS&the console its on? The game has been announced..its in development. Rod fergusson who worked on the first 3 games( as a producer) and led the development on bioshock infinite is now in charge of this one. He is going to be working with the talents at blacktusk who where recently joined by some talents from former irrational games. Why shouldn't xbx/gow fans be hyped? I sure am.
Summons75  +   17d ago
Where did you get I didn't like it. Geez read to much into the truth. I highly enjoyed Gears but they said they were setting it aside AFTER saying that the exclusivity rights were up and doing an Xbone and Ps4 remaster was possible. Then as MS loves to do is buy what they dont all to themselves...be mad all you want but its the truth.
Dontworrybhappy  +   17d ago
What hype? I have seen absolutely nothing! How can I be hyped for something I haven't seen?!
jams_shop  +   17d ago
What hype??? o_0*
iliimaster  +   17d ago
this game use to be great now all they do is listen to complainers and change the whole gameplay and after 3 months its not even the same game u played and got good at
OpieWinston  +   17d ago
You do realize this is a completely different company right?
Yes they will build it around what people want.

But as far as balancing goes we have no idea how it'll shape up.

Black Tusk currently has over 150 employees. All former Gears devs are welcome to join, as Rod has said.
Doesn't mean it'll be the same experience. Got to give it a chance to see what Black Tusk does.

The only thing hyped is me for Gears Of War. I've never played any franchise more than Gears. The replay value is so high. I'm sure Rod Ferguson will help develop a great game. And off the record Cliffy B. will have some influence. As long as they take their time and stay true to the series, it'll be great. Judgement was rushed and came too soon after GOW 3. Plus People Can Fly who developed GOW Judgement are not developing the upcoming game. I never did like what they did on Bulletstorm. Rod promised to stay true to the series, so that means horde mode will return.

I cant believe people still need to be told people can fly made the campaign, epic made the MP

All of the mistakes made where epic's fault
marioJP87  +   17d ago
What hype? Where? Show me! I haven't even seen a concept art pic of the game.
GusBricker  +   17d ago
Into my Xbox One, that's where it's headed.
