The Xbox E3 Briefing gave us a new look at Gears 5, but it wasn’t the reveal we expected. They announced a new multiplayer is on its way, called Escape. See the trailer here…
While the opener says trailer, the new Gears 5 video is really more of a teaser, as we see the many sides of Kait. It’s a fascinating teaser, as there’s really no telling which direction The Coalition will take this character.
While we’ve had an idea that Gears 5 would be on its way, what was unknown was a new multiplayer mode for the 5th game of the series. It’s called Escape and it brings players together to fight off hoards of enemies, in an effort to escape this hellish facility.
Escape & Gears 5 will release on September 10, 2019 on Xbox One and PC. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers will be able to play 4 days earlier.
Additionally, if you pre-order Gears 5, you’ll be rewarded with a Terminator Dark Fate character pack, which brings the iconic mech to Gears 5 Escape.
