You can’t stop the Cole train – or hype for Gears 5, for that matter. After taking centre stage at Xbox’s E3 2019 conference, the September 10 2019 release date creeps ever closer, and Gamescom 2019 gave us another look at the campaign and returning Horde mode.
Gears of War 5 is doubling down on returning hero Kait Diaz; it seems that her identity and struggle to uncover her family’s shady past will be a central theme for the game. More specifically, the spectre of the original trilogy’s Locust Queen looms large here. It’s mega-creepy, and you can check it out below.
When it comes to gameplay, studio head Rod Ferguson said that this instalment will feature “a bunch of innovations, changes, [and] things that are really exciting and different but still feel like Gears”. This most definitely applies when it comes to the return of Horde, which is set to bring with it new features that will amp up the action in big ways.
