Bound by Blood

From one of gaming’s most acclaimed sagas, Gears is bigger than ever, with five thrilling modes and the deepest campaign yet.

Release Date: September 10, 2019

The Hivebuster squad run towards the camera, away from an encroaching green venom. Keegan, center, holds a Claw Rifle. Lahni, right, holds a serrated knife. Mac, left, shoots a pistol over his shoulder at an unseen enemy.


Outrun the bomb, outsmart the Swarm, and escape the Hive! Escape is a new, aggressive, high-stakes co-op mode featuring a three-player suicide squad that must work together to take out enemy hives from within.*

Armored JD fires a new Lancer at a massive Carrier. To his right, Armored Kait is crouched and holds a pistol, ready to jump over the fortifications into battle. The enemy horde nears them – a Juvie about to breach their fortifications, the Warden wielding dual breakers, as more enemies rush forward. A giant Snatcher creature can be seen in the distance.


Can you and four friends endure waves of ever-stronger enemies and bosses? Survive using new hero abilities, building defenses, collecting power, leveling up your skills and working as a team.*

Swarm Squad in Versus. Hunter gives a Thumbs Up expression.
