Gears of War 5 Has More Gears Than Ever

By Rich Stanton on at

Rod Fergusson talked about his long history with Gears of War before announcing the newest entry in the series, but perhaps a decade ago Epic wouldn't have trailed their new game with a talky video of several minutes as various Gears jaw-jaw. Naturally there's death, tears, and so much scenery chewed in a few minutes you won't believe it.

Gears of War 5 is a tough sell. It looks visually incredible, has introduced major melee elements and spectacular-looking bosses. At the same time... this isn't a game anyone plays for the story, and Epic spent a lot of time showing us just that side of it.
