Xbox and Coalition Announce Gears of War 5 - Reveal Trailer

Microsoft announced Gears of War 5 at its E3 Media Briefing today with a story trailer. Microsoft tapped Splash Damage, a United Kingdom studio that handled PC ports of earlier games in the series, to make Gears Tactics.

Gears POP! mashes Microsoft's popular franchise with toymaker Funko Pop's collectible figures in a rather unique combination.

Gears Tactics is now in pre-alpha and looks like a Gears of War take on the turn-based strategy gameplay of the recent XCOM games.

More news will be shared on both titles later on, but they'll be coming to iOS and Android. Microsoft says this will be the "biggest, most lovely Gears world ever created", and you can get your first glimpse of it in the reveal trailer below.

Does this mean that like its predecessor, Gears of War 5 will be less than innovative?

Gears of War 5 was one of the games listed in a Walmart Canada leak back in May, alongside other games like Hitman 2, Just Cause 4, Rage 2, and Assassin's Creed Odyssey which have since also turned out to be real. "Play solo or with a friend in local split-screen co-op, or online co-op". "And as it's grown, we've dreamed of taking it to new places in different ways to reach even more fans".
