Gears Of War Goes Big At E3 2018

Microsoft went big on Gears of War at Microsoft’s E3 Press Conference this year, announcing not one, not two, but three new titles based in the universe of Gears of War, one of Microsoft’s most successful exclusive franchises. The event kicked off with a brand new story trailer, providing fans with a brief narrative of the story and characters, alongside a rough release window of 2019.

Gears of War 4 was already taking steps away from the adrenaline fueled adventure of masculinity and testosterone, and Gears of War 5 seems to continue that trend with the trailer showing Kait Diaz speaking with Fenix about nightmares and other devilish things. While the trailer didn’t reveal too much, it does appear to be taking gears into a more cinematic direction.

Outside of Gears of War 5 came two other gears inspired titles, Gears Pop and Gears Tactics. Gears Pop is basically gears characters in Pop Figure style, very little more was shown. Although it was incredibly entertaining hearing the groans as Gears Pop was shown first, and nobody was sure anything was going to follow. Gears Pop will release on mobile platforms.

Finally, Gears Tactics. Gear Tactics is a turn-based shooter strategy game, thing XCOM but in the gears world. Very little information was revealed although what little was shown, looked fantastic.
