As fans get hands on with Horde Mode for the first time ever at gamescom this week, we’re bringing a little piece of gamescom back to North America with a special opportunity.

Beginning on Tuesday 20th August, select Microsoft Stores across North America will have Gears 5 Horde Mode playable in-store for a limited time!

This is your chance to experience Heroes with their own Ultimate Abilities, take on some brand new Swarm enemies and be one of the first to play on the newly revealed multiplayer map Vasgar.

Here’s a list of the 9 participating Microsoft Stores across North America:

  • Miami, FL – Dadeland Mall
  • Oak Book, IL – Oakbrook Center
  • Schaumburg, IL – Woodfield
  • New York, NY – 5th AVE
  • Dallas, TX – NorthPark Center
  • Houston, TX – Houston Galleria
  • San Antonio, TX – La Cantera
  • Toronto, ON – Yorkdale Shopping Centre
  • Tysons, VA – Tysons Corner Center

Please contact your listed store of choice for information on availability before this opportunity closes on Sunday, August 25th.

We had a blast seeing fans get hands on with Escape with our E3 and seeing the experiences you shared. If you make it to one of these stores and get hands on with Horde Mode, send us your reactions to @GearsofWar on Twitter! We’d love to see them.

Have fun out there.
