Gears 5 is the latest entry in this long running hardcore shooter franchise that was developed by The Coalition. It is the next main entry that aims to expand the scope of the experience in new ways. The campaign features a crumbling world where the Swarm has corrupted the Coalition’s robot army and is descending upon human cities. Kait Diaz breaks away from the action to uncover her connection to the enemy, and the true danger to Sera that is herself.
With Escape, you work as a three player squad to escape dangerous hive locations that are filled with enemies. There’s also a map builder that allows the creation of custom Escape maps to challenge others with. Versus continues to expand with new additional modes, and ways to play in this highly competitive area that’s been a staple of the series.
Horde has you working with others to defend positions, and endure intense waves that continue to grow in strength over the course of the match. New elements add replayability to this Horde setup. The campaign can be played with three cooperative members online, or two players locally with splitscreen. Check out our franchise hub for more coverage of the series.
