The Redmond company made a publication in which it talked about what it expects for the next months. There it reiterated that Gears 5, the next installment of the Gears of War saga, is scheduled to release this year.
Good to know
I have a good feeling about this one
After seeing the trailer I have a very bad feeling about this one. Gears was always a fun dude game that had fun witty dialogue. Fun characters like Marcus, Baird and Cole. The story was always crap and the game play was a bit monotonous but it had those other things going for it. This new one looks like it will have none of those things that made the first 3 fun.
Being a Gears fan i will play this.. Will borrow my friend's xbox and play this game.. Still yet to use 14 days game pass trial. So will use it for Gears.
Quite liked no 4, but hopefully no more robots in the series. That almost killed it off for me, totally changed the tone. Thankfully they were mainly at the start of the game. Best thing they could do is move the series more to the feel of Gears 1 - that dark, horror theme was great.
Didn't come close to killing it off for me. However it did feel off for the series. Also the sounds they made in MP made them easier to detect... to me anyway :)
The first trailer did have the robots. Let’s just hope they are less of a focus in this one
It just needs the robots to both have a more interesting reason to be there, and to make them scarier. Have them charge at the player, or make them incredibly intelligent tacticians. Enough of this slow walking and shooting rubbish.
Based on the first trailer it seems they will definitely be there, but the new swarm enemies seem to be integrating themselves into the robots creating a half robot half swarm enemy that should hopefully be much more interesting to fight.
Robots were awful, I stopped playing when it got to that bit. They are just not as fun to shoot as the locust. I had the same problem with the later halo games, the covenant and flood are just more fun, robots are boring.
Nice. Looking forward to this. Really enjoyed 4!
Gears 5!!!!! My xbox 1X is and my sony bravia are ready.
What about your xbox pro controller or your monster hdmi cable or your surge protector. 😂😂😂 28514; Anything else we should know
I've got a 55" 4K TV with HDR and we have the Pro and of course the XOX as well. @81BX is proud of their set up and so am I. Don't be a [email protected] @Highlife, leave your bitter comments out of things
No pro controller. Had an elite controller and it broke... MS sends me a new replacement and that breaks in a month! MS isn't exactly know for reliable hardware :(
I hope they try to make gears 5 mote.colorful and more outdoor areas like they did in 4
Based on the E3 trailer I was seeing frozen landscapes, lush jungles, desert areas and some dark and nasty looking streets and underground facilities. I think it's safe to say we will have a nice variety of locations.
It could be a cross-gen game.
I'm not sure the next xbox will be out this year.
I believe it but Gears isn’t what it used to be.
Cant wait for this
NO Male hero = not buy
How about a PC port of the 1st Gears that actually works? 2 and 3 on PC would be nice too. This is literally the only MS exclusive series I'm trying to get into.
I thought Gears of War 4 sucked it wasn't really dark like other Gears of War games.
Gears 3 wasn't really dark either
Gears 5 is really intriguing me since it seems like this one will be a pretty big departure from the small corridor levels from the first 4. I really hope that the open areas don't make the game feel too boring or tedious. I thought God of War handled the semi open world very well. So if Gears 5 follows that style then I could be okay with that.
ive just bought gears of war 4 for £3.95 off cd keys on offer, its a cross play title so it redeemed in windows store. 135GB download tho. always liked the gears series
I miss the old Gears. Since Epic sold the brand it hasn’t been quite what it used for be. I wish I could be excited, because it’s the one franchise that will get me to buy another XBOX. Gears 2 was one of my favorite games last gen and the biggest reason I “Jumped in” and started paying for Live. It feels a little stale these days and somehow unauthentic. Like that EA shine, but without the weight and substance of a game that’s loved by the developers creating it as much as the players who buy it.
4 was a massive disappointment and so far this just looks cringe, seems to have taken too much from Tomb Raider... Can’t believe this is the same franchise that introduced us to Marcus, Dom, Cole, Baird, Carmine, Hoffman, Dizzy, Kim and Tai. The new characters don’t even come close.
