The inside story of Microsoft's surprising Gears of War 5 reveal

Everyone expected Gears of War 5 at E3 2018. Nobody expected Gears Pop and Gears Tactics. This is how Microsoft hopes to turn the series into its next mega-franchise.

The story is too old to be commented.

I have high hopes for this game. I want drive that sledge thingy

Yeah the E3 presentation they showed had me intrigued

This is not my GoW...
This is more like Gears of Drama with a mediocre gameplay.
To me, the real Gears of war ended with GoW2.

Gears 4 had a short forgettable story. I hope Gears 5 expands on it and makes us care this time.

Yeah I am currently at act 4 and even though I love linear games more than open world game, the level design in this game is way too linear. It's like you chase the snatcher and then horde of enemy's come and over and over again. It kind of feel like the old Uncharted games where swarm of enemies approach you to slow down your progression. (That's why I liked the slow and sensible progression in U4)The character development is not occurring at all so that is another minus. At least old Uncharted games had great story and fantastic character development. They really should address this in their next installment.

Yep and right when the story seems to be picking up the game abruptly ends.

Linear is Linear there is no(it's way to linear), that's just daft to say because your either following the routes set out for you or it becomes a free to roam where you want. Gears of war has always been linear mostly and I say mostly because now and again you can choose different paths to go at times.

However though there is enough of the map while fighting,for it to feel like it's not a linear experience as i never really felt like it was while playing.

Hehe, why did you expect anything related to Gears at this year's E3? I sure as hell didn't expect three Gears games!

ShadowWolf712118d ago

Because they needed to combat the idea they didn't have First Party in the pipeline so I fully expected the return of Halo, Gears, & Forza.

Which missed the point of taking risks and needing new IPs, as did half their acquisitions as they bought devs almost exclusively working for them already who will likely keep making the same games, but I digress.

Point is, I'd have been more shocked to NOT see all three on that stage.

More like a surprisingly big check from Microsoft.

And im not saying other publishers don't do this either.

What was surprising about a new Halo, Gears and Forza game being announced at E3?

JerseyDon118d ago

Seems like the Coalition is focusing on the story this time around. Which I already okay with a more single player focus. I still love Gears MP but I've always felt it could be a better Single player experience than MP if done correctly.
