    Yay?
    Still feels very light.

    Sure does. I don't know why they're being so coy with the campaign when they showed plenty of snippets last year.

    Campaign cinematic?

    Why? We know what Gears should look like in theory.

    Dunno. They are being really cagey about SP for some reason.

    It does feel like they want to keep it a surprise.

    I'll be surprised if it's not a 3rd person cover shooter.

    And not sliding into irrelevance faster than Halo.

    Inside Xbox just started and they namechecked Gears 5. Could just be more Escape though.

    Gears Tactics is nowhere to be seen. Can't get excited about Gears 5 from what I've seen (sorry Duff!) but was hoping to hear more about GT this week.

    Maybe it's an age thing and I'd just rather kill those pesky Locust one turn at a time..

    @MrMumtaz
    Adds name to the list

    ;)

    Did get some good info on Gears.com from some formites who have played Escape.
    You can turn off nearly of not all the health bars and hitmarkers. I will be doing that right away!

    I'd imagine that stuff would be really helpful in a mode where you're supposed to have your back against the wall and always be pushing forward. But hey, good you can turn it off if you want to! Options!

    That Gears panel is at 6pm, by the way. They'll have Rod, the four main VAs, and they're supposed to be introducing a new character.

    Rod on now. They're talking about Escape at the minute, though.

    Escape is the next big Gears thing, then.

    I love these cast script reads. The SDCC (I think it was) panel they did before 4 came out was really good, too.

    Anyone think that the T800 is gonna look kind of strange roadie running and vaulting over walls?

    I think it'd work better as a horde enemy or something. Look a damn sight better than deebies anyway.

    I figured it would be a reskinned bot from 4 as they were practically terminators.

    You can play as them then?

    I assume so as preorders/gamepass early adopters get the terminator/sarah connor skin pack.

    Finally got to watch some Escape gameplay via Outside Xbox.

    And..... It's a hard pass from me. I feel the series is played out.

    Not a particularly inspiring cinematic but it's just a character intro with little context. I'm more interested in general gameplay and narrative.

    From what little I’ve seen of it, Escape looks like it might scratch that “quick bit of Gears” itch that you could only get from Versus.

    Having a 10-15 minute single player blast through seems like a great idea. Kinda like a Destiny strike.

    Are the levels randomised?

    Not sure, re: the above, but there is a map editor.

    Is there any talk of a limited edition Gears 5 X console?

    Morning chaps and Ladies... (who am I kidding!)
    So this month is "MP reveal month" starting in earnest today:

    Get a sneak peek look at Versus this Friday. This will be on Gears.com I would think.

    Full Versus reveal at ELEAGUE Invitational on July 13-14

    Earn Esports Kait in Gears 4 and Gears 5

    We should also hear a good deal more throughout the month.

    It getting close!
    I will be knee deep in Gears 5 in 63 Motherfecking days!!!!
