Building on the success of the third-person shooter franchise that defined HD gaming, “Gears of War” is expanding with new and unique experiences developed specifically for console, PC and mobile devices. With The Coalition and franchise co-creator Rod Fergusson leading development, Microsoft Studios is tripling down on “Gears of War” with three new titles:
- “Gears 5” (Xbox One and Windows 10 Exclusive – World Premiere) – 2019
As Kait, journey across the biggest, most beautiful Gears world ever created. Play solo or with a friend in local split-screen co-op, or online co-op (Xbox Live Gold membership required for online multiplayer on Xbox One, sold separately) and experience every mode in 4K Ultra HD resolution with stunning HDR at a smooth 60 frames per second. “Gears 5” will be released in 2019 for Xbox One and Windows 10 and will come to Xbox Game Pass on the same date as its global release.
- “Gears Pop!” (iOS, Android Exclusive – World Premiere) – 2019
“Gears Pop!” brings together iconic Gears characters in a cute Funko Pop! style. The game is being developed in partnership with Funko (Nasdaq “FNKO”) and inspired by the Gears of War vinyl collectible figures. It’s the perfect slice of mobile mayhem. It will be available on iOS and Android in 2019.
- “Gears Tactics” (Windows 10 Exclusive – World Premiere)
“Gears Tactics” evolves turn-based tactics games combining signature fast-paced brutal action and character-driven storytelling with customizable squads, upgradable weapons, and of course, massive boss battles. “Gears Tactics” is also the first Gears game to be specifically designed for PC gamers.
