Son los del cómic de Hivebusters al comando de Hoffman, sacado de ign Details on Gears 5 Escape Mode's Story and New Characters - IGN First
Meet the Hivebusters.
Gears 5s Escape is the newest game mode in the franchise, and it comes with a whole new side story. Three new characters are on a suicide mission to help rid Swarm hives from Sera, and though their story doesnt directly impact the mode, it is an interesting bit of worldbuilding that enriches the Gears universe further.
Lahni, Keegan, and Mac are Hivebusters. As we see in Escapes gameplay, their mission is to get caught by Snatchers to infiltrate the heart of a hive, plant a venom bomb, then escape as the hive dies. Though there are some in-game details about the Hivebuster, including banter between them while youre playing through Escape, the best way to learn about their story is through the new Gears of War: Hivebusters comic.
Gears 5 Escape Explained - IGN First
Autoplay setting: On
The Hivebusters comic is written by Kurtis J. Wiebe, and hes no stranger to the Gears universe. He killed a Carmine and put Raam in the spotlight in his comic Gears of War: Rise of Raam. He helped shape the characters story we see in the new mode.
One of the things that [The Coalition's] Rod Ferguson told me when he brought me on is that they wanted to do this really awesome, exciting new game mode. [The Coalition] wanted to ground it in an interesting story because they were bringing in three new characters," Wiebe said. "They wanted to make a distinct and have a different voice for it. So, they brought me on to write out these characters that they had done some design work for. We have Keegan, Lahni, and Mac, and they all come from different backgrounds. I came in to flush out those characters, give them some personality and some drive as to why they're doing what is essentially a crazy suicide mission.
An Introduction to the Hivebusters
The Hivebusters are part of a special group called Team Scorpio. They were tasked with the suicide mission of attempting to exterminate a Swarm hive from the inside. Each character is bound to this mission with different expectations, though they were all only required to complete this one run. After their mission is successful, however, they choose to stay together for more assignments. Team Scorpio's story is still being explored in the Gears of War: Hivebuster comics, but in the meantime, Wiebe gave us the backstory on each of the characters to explain their motivations.
Lahni servers as Scorpios scout and she comes to Team Scorpio with experience as the second oldest of the crew. Wiebe describes her as an adrenaline junkie which plays into how her ultimate gets her up close and personal to her enemies.
This is a new character idea that is something that, Coalition was awesome working with me on the concept for. Lahni comes from a group called the Brash Brigade, Wiebe said. It's not established in the lore as of yet, but the idea is that after the Locust War ended, there were still pockets left of locust cells that existed and were still going to present a problem. She was a highly trained special ops soldier at the age of 19 who went in with the Brash Brigade and they would clean up these pockets that still existed unbeknownst to the greater population of Sera. She was imprisoned for a dangerous action that she took to protect her squad, but ended up [causing] the death of one of her senior officers. So, she was imprisoned for her actions. She's been given an opportunity to get out of prison; do this mission and should she succeed at the mission, she will be put back with her Brash Brigade. That's what's motivating her.
The Coalition Studio Head Rod Fergusson confirmed that Lahni is a Tai Kalisos cousin.
Keegan is the oldest of the group and he fills the support role. Wiebe said is kind of a fatherly figure of the group. His active ability allows him to give ammo to allies for a few seconds.
Keegan is a guy that carries a lot of weight on his shoulders," Wiebe said. "He served with the Onyx Guard but was taken away to protect Prescott back in the day. He feels that he missed the war and all of his brothers and sisters from the Onyx Guard were essentially wiped out during the war. Now, he's been given this opportunity. He sees it as an opportunity to pay them homage and to do right by them in his mind. So, that is why he's there doing this mission as kind of a last stab in his old age to do something that matters in his opinion.
Mac is the youngest of Team Scorpio and comes in with the least experience. He serves as the tank of the group and uses a shield for his ultimate ability.
[Mac] was raised after the war. He has no connections to the Cog. Essentially, an outsider that lived just outside of society with the rest of his family and all the other families that moved out to this place. Mac, his story is a bit of a secret and I don't want to go to too many of the details because it's revealed in the comic book series, Wiebe said. Essentially, he is motivated by revenge and for him, it is really a suicide mission. He doesn't expect to survive, but he wants to make an impact and just get as much revenge as he possibly can before he passes. His story is actually quite a sad one.
Team Scorpio's journey will continue to play out over the course of the summer as the Gears of War: Hivebuster comics are released. In addition to giving greater context to thse characters through the comic, Wiebe is also using the comics to flesh out some details about the Swarm.
What I really love about writing for Gears is that there's a really big universe that The Coalition, and Rod [Fergusson] in particular, have been really great with giving me a lot of freedom and a lot of ideas that I have, Wiebe said. In the comic book, you can see that the very opening of the few pages is this really strange, bizarre, almost dream space where it looks like Lahni, Keegan, and Mac can interact with each other's dreams and memories. That is all part of a process of being [taken by the] Swam and basically being podded by a snatcher. So, I kind of presented this idea that maybe when they're under they can walk through each other's dreams and memories and they just allowed me to roll with it. They are really excited by big ideas like that. There's so much space for that to grow.
The Gears of War universe is growing in other ways too. We recently learned that the Gears of War movie will be set in an alternate reality.
Gears 5 is out on September 10. If you havent already, be sure to read our hands-on impressions of Escape and check out the rest of our IGN First coverage of Gears 5 that continues all month long.

Es decir que si haces el desafio en gears 4, te guardan también el personaje para Gears 5 en un futuro:
Gears of War 4 Gilded RAAM Challenge
Welcome to the Gears of War 4 Gilded RAAM Challenge, an epic test of your Gears 4 loyalty that leads to brand new rewards both in Gears 4 and for the first time ever - to take with you into Gears 5!
The Gilded RAAM Challenge features three unique objectives to complete in Gears 4. Conquer all three, and youll net yourself the gold-trimmed Gilded RAAM character variant and the new Black Phantom Weapon Skin Set.
These arent your typical Gears 4 rewards though. For those who finish the Gilded RAAM Challenge, not only will you instantly unlock both rewards in Gears 4 but both Gilded RAAM and the Black Phantom Weapon Skin Set will be waiting for you in Gears 5!
This is also the only way to own RAAM at launch in Gears 5, so, dont miss out on your chance to have the General himself in your collection come launch day.
The Gilded RAAM Challenge begins Thursday, March 21st with 80 days available to complete all three parts of the Gilded RAAM Challenge:
Complete the Campaign on Hardcore Difficulty or Higher in Co-Op (Retroactive)
Reach Re-Up 10 (Retroactive)
Earn 1 Million Challenge Points.
Each point of XP earned in Horde (exc. Bounties) is worth 1 Challenge Point
Each point of Versus Score is worth 2 Challenge Points
Each Challenge is trackable in your Gears 4 Achievement List so you can monitor your progress as you play. Weve also added a new Re-Up count tracker in the War Journal under your XP bar to help make your current Re-Up Level clearer.
Unlike previous Challenges, once you complete all three Challenges, your rewards will appear instantly in your Gears 4 inventory without the need to use My Rewards or open Gear Packs.
The Future of Gears 4 Content
The time has come to say goodbye to new Customization Content and Gear Packs in Gears 4 as the team shifts their full focus into making Gears 5 the best game possible.
The end of this road marks the most content released for any Gears game in the series history, with 269 characters and 2,384 Weapon Skins added over the past two and a half years. Weve introduced new favorites (Sweater Imago!), fulfilled 10 year old fan requests (Palace Guard!) and learnt a lot on the way (maybe no more Color Blast..). We hope youve enjoyed the ride.
That said, we know some of your favorites (and ours) didnt make the cut before the end. We want you to know that, even though they didnt get the chance to appear in Gears 4, we hear your feedback loud and clear on which characters youd like to see return in the future.
Gears 4 To Gears 5
The Gilded RAAM Challenge also marks the first of several earnable characters and weapon skins that will be available in Gears 4 and follow you into Gears 5.
Everything you own in your Gears of War 4 collection today will be available for use in Gears of War 4 forever, but will not transfer to Gears 5. In Gears 5, our focus is to deliver as much new and original content as possible from the word go. Weve got a lot of exciting things planned and cant wait for you to see it.
In the near future, almost every Character and Weapon Skin set from Gear Packs has been added to Series 3! That means every Character variant and weapon skin set will be discoverable in standard Gear Packs and craftable with Scrap once the Update goes live.
Exceptions to the Series 3 craftable list:
All Esports Content, including Supporter Packs, Team Packs and the MLG skin
Community & Esports stream viewership rewards skin sets
All Play & Earn / Challenge Characters, including Griffin and Classic Golden Gear
Rank Tier Weapon Skins
The Run the Jewels Airdrop Pack
Blood Moon Imago
Gold Wave Weapon Skins
Wings Weapon Skins
Flaming Weapon Skins
Midnight Omen Weapon Skins
Heartbeat Weapon Skins
10th Anniversary Weapon Skins
Holiday Event Reward Weapon Skins
TCA Recruit and Commendation Lancers
Credits will still continue to be useful for picking up Core Gear Packs, which now have a chance to contain almost any content in the game.
You can also destroy any duplicate Cards you get for Scrap, which you can then use to directly Craft the content you want (the web Card Companion has an amazing Scrap All Duplicates feature).
A Final Note From The Team
As we close another chapter in the story of Gears 4, we want to take the opportunity to say thank you to all of you, our players, for your continued support.
For a long time now, Gears of War 4 has seen more players online every day compared to the same point in the post-launch life of the incredible Gears of War 3. This is beyond humbling to us as the new custodians of the franchise and a testament to the passion of an incredible community we get to call our own. From all of us, thank you.
For now, we still have plenty of Special Events and more for Gears of War 4 on the road to Gears 5s release later this year. Well see you out there on that chase for Gilded RAAM!
