EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT GAME OF WARS
Already available since September 6th for Xbox Ultimate Games Pass subscribers, the fifth episode of the main series Gears Of War is expected to release on September 10th 2019. The game developed by ‘The Coalition’ and edited by Xbox Games Studios should be one of the most hyped game until the end of the year for Xbox users.
A GAME NOT AVAILABLE FOR EVERYONE
Even if a worldwide release date is set for Gears Of War 5, it seems like the game won’t be available in China anytime soon. According to the developers “There is a specific issue with the Gears Of War 5 release in China preventing people from accessing the complete game.
Unfortunately, this issue means we have to suspend future sales and pre-orders, as well as the game’s release, in china at this time”
The reasons are not very clear but we can imagine that the game is not passing through the censorship in China and that developers are actively working on it. Chinese players will surely see a version of this opus but also surely a different one.
KAIT DIAZ AS THE MAIN PROTAGONIST
After the first trailers being released at E3 we got to know more about the game at Gamescom 2019 last August. With ‘Kait Unleashed’ it seems pretty clear now that Kait Diaz is going to be the main character of this opus. From what we’ve seen so far, the story this time should be around Kate’s family shady past. With headaches leading to flashbacks, Kate holding the Locust medallion and the following question ‘When the blood on your hands runs in your veins, who will you die for?’ written, this could be a hint for a comeback of the Locust Queen.
A NEW GAME MODE: ESCAPE
This new game type is a cooperative mode for three players. The basis of the game is simple, three players are dropped into a Hive, they are asked to go through the hive and are tasked to clear the Locust presence inside it by locking them up and releasing a poisonous gas. This game mode really wants the players to play as a team which is why each character has a special and unique ability. To be simple one character will provide a shield for the team, the second will provide ammo for him and his teammates and finally the third character has an electric blade that stuns and damages the enemies.
Gears Of War 5 is also introducing a skilled level up system that will allows you to unlock more choice in weapons and skills.Another cool feature of the mode is the possibility for the players to create their own map with a 2D map builder and then import them into the game.Either online or locally via a split screen, Gears of War lovers and creative players won’t have the time to be bored.
SOME CHANGES TO THE ‘ESCALATION MODE’
In a recent video posted on their youtube channel, Gears Of War developers informed us of four things we need to know about this year mode.

Gears of war will have crossplay enable by default meaning that Xbox and PC players can players against each other or together. Gears Of War 5 looks very promising, audio and graphism has been improved, new game mode are available and the new story should be linked with characters from previous episodes that made the glory of Gears Of War, we at TakeOff are looking forward to play the game!
