    I thought he premise was interesting - offering some new variety.

    Looks like coop could be 2 players, not 4.

    Well I thought it looked fucking great. Really cool to play as Kait, too.

    And why did JD look almost as old as Marcus :D

    Cue the horde of morons typing frantically over a woman being the lead character for Gears.

    @JamboWayOh
    Gears has always had great female representation, but I know what you are saying.

    @Technoishmatt
    I would love to return to 4 player, but I think you may well be right.

    Beards, beards always make you look older, why do you think I have one, otherwise I'd look about 12 :p

    I suspect some time has passed, they all look a fair bit older. So, what's happened to JD's arm, who died (Oscar perhaps, even though we saw him alive at the end of Gears 4), and who's the new guy in the glasses?

    The new COG armour is also a bit more funky and advanced.

    Yep, agree. I think a decent portion of the fanbase will be pretty excited to play as Kait - she's become a bit of a fan favourite - but there will sadly be knuggle-dragging goons complaining. Ah well, fuck em!

    EDIT Yeah, I was thinking it must have been Oscar that died, given Kait's reaction. And were those Swarm Deebees?? The hell.

    @DUFFMAN5

    It'll definitely happen. They can't help themselves. I for one can't wait it looked bloody good and I feel like this is the campaign they wanted to do after the safety start of Gears 4 .

    Vortex and BFG are hardly ever on.

    When I heard the chainsaw I got giddy. Which slowly turned to what the actual fuck when the funko's appeared. That was some fantastic trolling from MS!

    Why does everyone end up going bald in this franchise? Haha
    Marcus looks to be drinking from the fountain of youth also. From the start, I didnít recognise him to be JD and Marcus looked as young as ever... I thought it was a game set in between 3 and 4 :p

    Why did they have to make her so moody and someone that ignores the orders of her commander, she seems to have an anger issue at authority...

    This scene could have been great, they could have given it some emotional meaning, showing the closeness of the team.

    but I guess they have to go with whatever the political flow is at the moment.

    Please donít kill me Duff, but Iím kind of down on this.

    I was kind of hoping that the new Gears would be a God of War-esq reboot, with a big graphical jump and upgraded gameplay - but this is just a sequel to Gears 4, which I couldnít even bring myself to finish.

    I really hope the Gears hardcore fans love this game, but for a stinking casual like me it looks like more of the same.

    How DARE you!

    Male pattern baldness is no laughing matter, it effects 1 in 3 makes in the U.K. alone. Young JD Phoenix didnít CHOOSE to lose his hair, itís just bad genetics.



    They say baldness skips a generation though, so JDís grandfather must have looked like a plucked goose.....

    So everyone looks a bit aged up. Guessing we're a few years removed from Gears 4, and I want to know what's happened in the intervening years. Why don't JD and Kait seem to like each other very much anymore? What's up with JD's arm, and where'd he get that scar? Why does his dad look maybe five years older than him!?

    Also, reckon Kait and Del are going to Mount Kadar? Kait said she wanted to go back to where it all began, and that icy area looked very much like the lead up to Kadar in Gears 2.

    Greenberg speaks about Gears 5 a bit in this. Mentions "open-world aspects."
