Sarah Kerrigan from StarCraft became the queen of the Zerg. Hopefully gears 5 does something unexpected.

Good stuff mate! Looking forward myself to see where they take the series in this new open area format.

Side note: Can't believe people are down voting because some one is excited for a game. Although it is N4G, so I shouldn't be surprised. There's some sad as fuck fanboys on here who hate the idea of anyone enjoying anything. Pathetic.

Yeah a lot of folks don't like when you get excited for anything good Xbox related

Very interesting to see how it plays out. I wonder if there will be side missions and such. I'm really liking the direction they seem to be taking this series in. It could turn out to be awesome. Haven't been this hyped in quite a while.

It seems every act is a different open world area and there are main missions and side missions to do in those areas, as well as collectibles. Since they have things like relic weapons and JACK upgrades, you get those things by doing side quests or exploring the open world.

The missions themselves are the same cinematic Gears missions, but to get to them you have to traverse the open world.

I think its going going to be like how battlefield does there small sandbox levels, still kinda linear but open at the same time, (i.e. bf3)

Yep side missions that flesh out the story, as well as collectables to find that add to lore, also relic weapons that have unique properties and attributes. As well as upgrade materials to upgrade and modify JACK to provide you with buffs.

And since you do have the opportunity to freely run into enemies, they no longer immediately target you and attack. They are using a player instigated attack now, which gives you an opportunity to plan attacks, ambushes, and use stealth. And that even goes for some of the linear level set pieces. Now you can actually tactically use the cover system to set up flanks before a battle even starts.

That sounds pretty damn awesome.

I believe they confirmed side missions will be in the game.
