Gears of War is heading into two new worlds, while also continuing the franchise. Ever thought you’d play a Funko Pop! game? Probably eventually. Ever think it’d be Gears of war?
The game seems to be a lighthearted take on the franchise and geared towards a more casual crowd. There is a hint that the game will release alongside Pop figures, but not much else is know for the time being. We expect to hear more as E3 continues this week.
The second game on the list was Gears Tactics. The game is a turn based RTS title which is an entirely new twist on the franchise. There has been hints of the title for the past few years, with prototype gameplay being released at times. This is the first time the game has been officially announced.
“It’s our take on the classic turn-based strategy genre with a character-driven story, faster, more aggressive gameplay and a customizable squad and equipment.”
The game takes place years before the first title in the franchise where teams were set out to stop the Locusts, and it will include epic boss battles.
Lastly they didn’t leave core fans hanging at all. The franchise is also getting the 5th installment in the main series.
Players will play as Kait Diaz, one of the main characters of the last installment. The game is hitting Xbox in 2019 and will be available on Xbox Game Pass on day 1.
