Gears 5 logo
A squad of four stands assembled in front of an icy bluish white background. The image is a slightly monochromatic gray, with the hints of blue on the armor and emissives slightly more saturated. Winter Armor Kait stands in the forefront staring straight at ahead, her right arm bent as she hoists the new Lancer up against her shoulder. Armored Marcus stands just behind her to her left. He stares forward challengingly, his signature do-rag on his head, and his bushy grizzled beard slightly more gray. Winter Armored Del stands to Marcus’s right holding the Talon AutoPistol in his left hand, the unique curved ammo cartridge just visible. He also looks straight ahead. And standing to Del’s left is Armored JD, his injured right arm just barely visible, as holds the Lancer GL at the ready. His right arm bent, and the weapon pointing muzzle down. He alone, is looking off to his left, and away from where the rest of the squad are looking.

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.

The Skiff stands still atop a red sand dune, the sail aloft in the wind. Desert Armored Kait stands looking out over the horizon. Her left hand holds on to the side of the Skiff and in her right she holds a pistol. Desert Armored Del sits in the Skiff’s driver seat. Jack hovers in the foreground.

Campaign

The world is crumbling. The Swarm has corrupted the Coalition’s robot army and is descending upon human cities. With danger closing in, Kait Diaz breaks away to uncover her connection to the enemy and discovers the true danger to Sera – herself.

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.

Escape

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.*

Desert Armored Fahz and a Swarm Grenadier are locked in battle in a dark courtyard. Sparks fly off Fahz’s Lancer chainsaw as the metal strikes against the Grenadier’s Claw Rifle, as the two battle to dominate the King of the Hill ring. Behind, Desert Armored Del fire has frozen a Swarm Drone into a solid chunk of ice with his Cryo Cannon. While a COG Soldier runs up behind the frozen enemy swinging a Breaker above his head about to smash him to pieces.

Armored JD, his injured right arm visible, is standing pointing the Lancer GL laser at a massive Carrier in mid-roar. To his right, Armored Kait is crouched, holding the Talon AutoPistol in her right hand. She is ready to jump the concrete and electric fortifications they’ve built around them. In the foreground, a Juvie is about to breach their fortifications. His arms outstretched in mid-scream. Behind a helmeted Warden walks forward wielding dual Breakers, as more enemy Swarm Horde rush towards our heroes. Bringing up the rear is a giant Snatcher creature, its tail curled and ready to fire it’s quills.
