Jun 9, 2019 What’s Up – E3 2019 Edition

The day you’ve all been waiting for is here. E3 has arrived and we’ve already dropped a metric ton of Gears 5 announcements including the most important of all:

Gears 5 will release on September 6th through Early Access, and September 10th worldwide.

After a year of waiting (for us as well!), the time has finally come to talk about Gears 5. Thank you so much for your passion and excitement about our game. It truly means a lot.

Now enough with the soppiness. Let’s get right into the Gears 5 goodness!


Did you see this coming? Our biggest announcement of the show was the reveal of our new 3 player Co-Op Mode called Escape.

Escape is unlike any Gears PVE mode you’ve played before. After being abducted by a Snatcher, your mission is to plant a venom bomb in the very heart of the Swarm Hive and then fight through the Swarm to get the hell out – before the Venom  kills you.

For the first time in Gears history, you will also have the power to create, play and share your own Gears maps for Escape with a brand new tool – Map Builder.

But we know why you’re reading right now. You want gameplay. You want all the details. Well, read on dear Gears fan.

IGN First

A whole month of Escape coverage is on the way exclusively through IGN First!

Head on over to the Gears 5 IGN First Hub now to see the first ever impressions of Escape. Make sure to bookmark the page and check back all month long for even more Escape coverage, gameplay and details you won’t want to miss.

Live Escape Gameplay From E3

On top of the extensive coverage from IGN over the coming weeks, there’s still lots more Escape to come from E3.

Rod Fergusson will be joined by WWE Superstars Austin Creed, Tyler Breeze and AJ Styles to stream some live Escape Gameplay, followed by a Rodcast where we’ll be answering your questions about Escape!

5 Ways To Play

Today is just the beginning of a long conversation about Gears 5 that takes us from today right through to launch on September 10th. We cannot wait to tell you more about this game.

While this month is all about Escape and Map Builder, here’s what to expect to hear about – and when – on the Road to Launch.

Versus – July

Gears 5 Versus will debut with a bang with ELEAGUE, culminating with the ELEAGUE Summer Series Live Tournament on July 13-14 where 8 of the world’s top Gears teams will face off in an epic showdown in the first Gears 5 tournament EVER.

Versus mode will also be playable in July during the Gears 5 Tech Test. Join us to be one of the first to play our all-new competitive game type – Arcade – a frenetic experience built for jump-in, over-the-top fun. You’ll also get hands on with the next evolution of our esports mode Escalation 2.0.

Access to the Gears 5 Tech Test is included with Xbox Game Pass or by pre-ordering at participating retailers, including the Microsoft Store.

Horde – August explore-horde-5cf9759fe900e-1024x576.jpg

Horde mode will return in August with a hands-on gameplay debut at gamescom, featuring new character abilities that can turn the tide of the battle.

Campaign – September explore-campaign-5cfc0983ce4d1-1024x576.

Play the Gears 5 Campaign beginning September 6 through Early Access.

With all-out war descending, Kait Diaz breaks away to uncover her connection to the enemy and discover the true danger to Sera – herself.

This is the biggest Gears campaign ever and the first to feature three-player split-screen campaign co-op.

While these represent the major pillars of the Gears 5 experience, there’s still plenty of details in between that we’ll be covering when we can.

Our goal over the next three months is to bring you a comprehensive look at Gears 5, leading you deeper into the game than we’ve ever done before a Gears game’s release. Expect streams, detailed blogs, answered questions and PLENTY of gameplay.

Gears 5 Editions Go_Ultimate_English_1920x1080-5cfc74c5af

The full version of Gears 5 will release with the Standard Edition of the game on Xbox Game Pass on September 10, 2019. But if you want in earlier than that, we’ve got some exciting news for you.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers will get access to the Ultimate Edition version of the game at no extra cost. That means you get to start playing on September 6, 2019 and enjoy all of the Ultimate Edition bonus content including an exclusive Ultimate Edition Character Pack and 30 Days of Boost!

Here’s a simple breakdown of the different editions available for Gears 5:

Gears 5 for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Subscribers (Digital)

What Is Boost?

We’re sure you have questions about what ’30 Days of Boost’ means in the Ultimate Edition version of Gears 5.

But what exactly is Boost?  Customization, Boost and Unlocks will be talked about in-depth in the coming weeks and months. Just know, it is not required to earn any content, nor does it give you access to a ‘premium’ selection of unlockable items that those without Boost cannot access.


This pre-order bonus is next level. We’re so excited about this.

We’ve teamed up with Skydance Media to bring a special Terminator Dark Fate Character pack, including Sarah Connor and the T-800 endoskeleton from the film, to Gears 5. Yes, really!

If you want to secure both characters for your Gears 5 collection, along with a bonus Vector Lancer Skin and 7 Days of Boost, all you need to do is download and play Gears 5 from Xbox Game Pass before September 16, 2019 or pre-order any version of Gears 5.

Road To Gears 5 road-to-gears-5-hero-1920x700-9e715ec04e

Back in March, we gave you the opportunity to play Gears of War 4 to earn Gilded RAAM and take him with you into Gears 5. Well Gears fans, that was just the beginning.

Between now and launch, we’ll be offering up 10 (!!) more opportunities to earn content to take into Gears 5, including FIVE more Gilded Characters and a whole bunch of bonus customization items.

While Gilded RAAM was meant to be for the most hardcore dedicated Gears 4 players out there, the remaining Challenges have been designed to be more approachable and achievable for everyone – though respectable in their own right.

The first 5 Challenges will go live in Gears of War 4 tomorrow, June 10th, at 10am PT.

The last 5 Challenges will go live on August 1st at 10am PT.

All 10 Challenges end on September 2nd at 10am PT.

Look out for our dedicated Road To Gears 5 page launching tomorrow for full info on all the Challenges. Oh, and if you’re wondering what those bonus customization items are, we’ll be talking about that more when we reveal Versus next month. We won’t keep you waiting long.

Gears 5 Preview: Hands-on With the Brand-New Escape Mode – IGN First


By Miranda Sanchez The best advice I was given for playing Escape, the Gears 5’s new co-op game mode, was to crank it up to the highest unlocked difficulty and work backward from there. I pride myself on being able to adapt to gaming challenges quickly, so I figured I could get a quick victory – plus I was playing with two people who worked on the mode.

Unlike Horde’s pressure to defend, Escape asks you to, well, escape. And quickly. In it, a group of up to three players (online or local co-op!) must make their way through a maze-like Hive as their own deadly venom bomb trails behind while plenty of Swarm wait ahead. Even knowing new enemies and weapons awaited, I figured my special companions and I could handle it.


It turns out “handling it” meant trying and failing several times before we finally figured out a strategy for the Hive’s last treacherous room. Our close encounter with yet another failure ended in a spectacular battle where my last remaining ally and I nearly ran out of ammo trying to take down a tornado of disgusting Swarm leeches. It was, frankly, awesome. I felt like we deserved a reward for finally completing it, only to realize we gained a new modifier to amp up the difficulty further.

Gears 5 Escape Mode Is Like a Puzzle

Escape’s challenge is alluring; it’s like solving a puzzle.

Escape’s challenge is alluring; it’s like solving a puzzle, only I felt like I couldn’t truly declare victory until I unlocked and beat the map with all its modifiers. Said modifiers are a new, more customizable way to change difficulty rather than selecting a blanket term with preset challenges. Three are unlocked at first. The trio paired with this map gave our enemies double health, double damage, and increased the number and variety of enemies. Completing Escape with all available modifiers on unlocks the next -- we got one that decreased the amount of ammo received from the already-scarce ammo boxes.

I was rather gung-ho on the difficulty of Escape, but I appreciate that it allows everyone to customize the kind of challenge they get from Escape every time they play. If it feels too challenging, your team can change the modifiers or even unequip them all and just learn the basics of the map. Escape offers plenty of good tools to deal with its challenges, though.


Gears 5 Escape Mode Characters and Abilities

Escape stars three class-based characters, and they each come with their own passive and active abilities that are essential for clearing the mode. There’s Lahni, a scout whose active ability grants her an electroblade that stuns and damages enemies she strikes. It’s particularly effective against big enemies. Then there’s Keegan, a support character whose active makes a small area where allies can regenerate ammo for a short time. Rounding out the new characters is Mac, a tank who can hold a rather wide invulnerable shield for a short amount of time. Using their chargeable abilities at the right time is crucial if you’re playing with multiple modifiers. Each character also has their own XP and equippable skill cards that can be upgraded to increase their benefits. Unequipping skill cards can also make a run more challenging if you’re into that.


Lahni, Keegan, and Mac are Hivebusters, a new group within the Gears universe who are determined to go on these suicide missions to eliminate Hives. We’ll have more on their backstory and how it ties to Gears 5 on June 18, but know that these three characters won’t be the only characters you can play. Eventually, other Gears characters like Kait will make their way to Escape with their own classes and special abilities. The character abilities will also be in Horde, but not in the Versus modes.

Gears 5 Safe Rooms

Another major tool that I could see helping keep me determined while multiple modifiers are on – or even none – is the Safe Room. This room is a sort of benchmark between sections of Escape that allows your team to take a quick breather, grab a drink, run to the bathroom, reply to a text… whatever you need to do before you’re ready to take on the rest of the map – not unlike Left 4 Dead’s safehouses. It’s also a save point. Yes, if you fail, you don’t have to start all over. You return here. While that can be good, if you missed an enemy room that dropped something you needed or ran out of time to explore a safe room filled with ammo, grenades, or even a Boomshot, you may just want to start over or drastically change your tactics. We opted for the latter when we failed to find me a Markza on one run. We had been relying on my headshots, which made our next attempts a little more challenging.

Speaking of headshots, if you’ve checked out the Gears 5 gameplay footage, you should notice that the gunplay looks quite a bit different. There are damage numbers (and yes, they can be turned off), the hit reticle changes colors depending on how you shoot an enemy, and weapons have recoil that creates bullet patterns rather than letting the bullets bloom as a player fires longer. Additionally, the iconic Crimson Omen no longer blocks the middle of the screen. It has evolved into the Inverse Omen, allowing players to better see their attacker (if you see them) when their health is low. Studio Head of The Coalition, Rod Fergusson, said that with Gears 4, they wanted to prove they knew how to make a Gears. With Gears 5, they want to add their own touches to the franchise and challenge expectations, including bringing Gears gunplay up to modern standards. The Coalition worked with pro players to test their gunplay upgrades, and as a fan of shooters, I’d say these changes are all for the better.

With Gears 5, they want to bring Gears gunplay up to modern standards.

If the sheer challenge of playing through Escape’s difficult modifiers isn’t enough, there will also be leaderboards to track the best completion times and special cosmetic rewards for the players who place high enough. You’d have to get your best time in Escape rather quickly, though, as Escape Hives are built with special tiles that allow The Coalition to release new official maps roughly every week, meaning there will be plenty of new challenges and rewards post-launch. Player progress in Escape also earns you other rewards across Gears 5, but we’ll learn more on that later.


The Coalition Hives won’t be the only ones you can play. Escape comes with a neat map builder which allows players to easily make their own Hives and challenge friends and the greater Gears community to play their creations. I’m excited to unleash my own design disasters into the world, provided that I can beat it before I’m allowed to publish it. I’m thinking at least twelve snipers by the exit and an overly aggressive Flock. Good luck, future self.

We now know that Gears 5's release date is September 10, 2019 -- and it there's a pretty crazy Gears 5 Collector's Edition, too. IGN has even more Gears 5 Escape content on the way. Be sure to stay tuned all June long for details on Escape’s story, more on the map builder, and plenty of other Gears news.
