    @Ror
    Lots of debate on Gears.com
    I like it. More excited about the fact in a few days we should have a lot more information including gameplay and release date. We already have 2 dates but neither are confirmed.

    Gears 5 posters going up around the convention centre. Each one has a different environment in the red area. Check out JD's.



    That's East Barricade Academy from the Ultimate version of Gears 1. Remember when you touch down on the raven on your way to the Fenix estate? That 'HOPE' sculpture is there.

    Reckon we'll be going back to the Fenix estate in 5?

    So long as no-one fucks with Marcus' toh-may-toes this time, I'm sure it'll be fine.

    I reckon JD got splashed with a new strain of tomatoes that his dad was experimenting with, and that's why his arm is all fucked up.

    Is it time for a full Gears run in preparation for G5? Starting with Judgment?

    New book.......
    Gears of War: Ascendance https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07Q4LPQJZ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_ccb.CbXMA6PMQ

    About time!

    Description
    Following Reyna Diaz’s death at the hands of the Swarm (in Gears of War 4), Kait seals her mother’s tomb and swears revenge. As she, JD, Del, Marcus, Cole, Samantha, and Baird lick their wounds and resupply, First Minister Jinn summons them to New Ephyra, promising that the “crimes” they committed will be forgiven. Before they can rejoin the Coalition, however, Jinn demands proof of their loyalty, and of the threat of the Swarm. Promised a new command, JD and Del agree. Plagued by nightmares, Kait rebels and refuses. When she discovers that two teens from her devastated village have survived, she goes rogue and strikes out to rescue them, accompanied by Marcus Fenix. Pursued by the robotic DeeBees, Kait and Marcus search for survivors. Instead they find an overwhelming force of the enemy—and an unexpected ally. Meanwhile JD and Del lead a mission to locate the Swarm, only to be cut off from New Ephyra. Trapped and surrounded, they’re on their own. Picking up where Gears of War 4 left off, GEARS OF WAR: ASCENDANCE is the official, action-packed bridge between that game and Gears 5.

    i find it odd that this is a bridging book between 4 and 5, just like Coalition's End was between 2 and 3, but the rumored release date of G5 is Sep 2019 and the books release date is 31/12/19. i'd have though the book would be out a couple of months before the game to bridge that gap before the release.

    surely that's the way it was with Coalition's End.

    If something has a date of December 31st, it's almost always a placeholder. I imagine we'll get a proper date for that soon.

    Gears 5 will be their big game for the second half of the year, so I could well imagine a custom One X announcement coming.

    I think that is just the Escape mode.
    Campaign is still 2 player and I assume Horde 5.

    I was totally underwhelmed with that, very poor!

    The Ultimate Edition is £20 more at £70 but so far the only addition is a character pack and 4 days early.

    Will it have less toe-curling "banter" than 4?

    My stream crapped out during the Gears segment, so I missed the Escape mode trailer. Just catching up now, and IGN have some gameplay up.



    I'm up for a new co-op mode, and I'm guessing this will have some narrative ties - I think those might be the characters from the recent Hivebusters comic series.

    Oh ok mate, the third player must be Jack ?
    ...see you in Sept.

    I have Watched some Escape gameplay, so it is basically Zombie (CoD) mode. What I saw was ok-ish. I would have rather Beast 2.0 though.

    I think it is the least excited I have ever been for a Gears reveal. I'm just holding onto the fact we have not seen, mp campaign or Horde yet.

    I am looking forward to the beta in July of course.

    Tbh that IGN gameplay seemed pretty boring but IGN have the ability to make most games seem shit going from their terrible players.

    From Gears blog.




    People will be able to make their own Escape maps, which could be pretty cool.

    I'm underwhelmed. I don't feel the need to get a new Xbox.

    Fingers crossed mate, we still have:
    Campaign
    mp
    Horde
    Reveals, although the picture they posted for Horde had the usual suspects in, no OG Locust :(
