Gears 5 Co-Op Stream Recap

It's been over a year since Gears 5 launched, and the Co-Opticrew is finally getting back to it. Nick just wrapped up the campaign and will be heading into the new Hivebusters DLC that just launched, and the whole team decided to dive into the Escape mode, the new 3 player co-op scenario in the game.

Updates, Patches And Presents!

ICYMI: Gears 5 Received New Content and Last Day for “Gearsmas” Goodies

Gears 5 kicked off its second “Operation” (i.e., season) last month, called “Operation: Free For All.” The Title Update 3 brought a slew of bug fixes, maps, and the new Free For All PvP mode to the game, but that’s not all we got for December. Much like in real life, Christmas came upon us and the COGs faster than we had anticipated and with it came some holiday-themed content for Gears 5 in the form of the annual Gearsmas event.

Gears 5 Horde Focuses on the Heroes You Play

A few days ago, The Coalition lifted up the curtain on the new Horde mode for the forthcoming Gears 5. While many of the same systems from Gears of War 4 are returning (i.e., using a Fabricator to build fortifications/guns, gathering energy to power the Fabricator, equipping cards on your character), there are a few tweaks, too.

Pretty sure all these videos should just have Neil Cicierega's "Bustin" playing in the background

Meet The Hive Bustin' Crew From Gears 5's Escape Mode

Last month, The Coalition showed off the new three player co-op mode that, Escape, will be a part of Gears 5 when it arrives in September. Rather than staying in one spot and fighting off wave after wave of enemies, Escape puts you in the boots of one of three members of a "Hivebuster" crew and tasks you with being able to get out from the middle of a Hive before the angry Swarm, or the deadly bio weapon you deployed, takes you out. In three new videos, you can now get a chance to "meet" the members of the crew and go ahead and call "dibs" on your fave.

[E3 2019] - Gears 5 Arrives This September With a New Co-Op Mode

So much news, so little time! Rod Fergusson, studio head for The Coalition, took the stage during Microsoft's E3 press conference this year to talk about the newest entry in the Gears franchise, Gears 5. The last time we heard anything much about this game was during last year's E3, and it was a little surprising that not only did they have a new mode to show off and talk about, but a release date: September 10, 2019.

[E3 2018] - Microsoft Press Conference Recap

Microsoft's E3 2018 press conference wrapped up just a few hours ago, and there were some exciting things announced, like a new Halo title, Dying Light 2, and Gears 5. While Microsoft Studios is making the right moves towards "hey, come check out our excellent console," it was a bit disappointing that they didn't have more to say about what they were showing.
