Gears of War 5

 

Microsoft showed three new Gears of War titles today. They include Gears of War 5, Gears of War Tactics, and Gears of War: POP!.

Gears of War Tactics is coming to Windows 10. It combines fast-paced and brutal action with character-driven story-telling. At your disposal are upgradeable weapons and customizable squads, plus epic bosses standing in your way. Gears of War Tactics is also billed as the first Gears title to be designed specifically for PC players. The game takes place 12 years before the events of the first Gears of War game. No release date information was given for this title yet.

Next, there is Gears of War POP!. It will be coming to Android and iOS sometime in 2019. It mixes iconic Gears of War characters with a Funko Pop! style.

Gears of War 5 is coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 sometime in 2019. It features the largest Gears of War world yet, with all game modes supporting 4K Ultra HD at 60fps. You can play alone, or team up with a friend in local co-op. There is also an online co-op mode, too.  Gears of War 5 will join Xbox Games Pass on the same day as its global release.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
