Gears of War 5 background 1
Gears of War 5 is the new installment of the iconic third-person action saga Gears of War for PC and Xbox One. Hand in hand with The Coalition, this time the protagonist of this shooting adventure with numerous waves of extraterrestrials will be Kait, betting on returning to the roots of the series and show a graphic and artistic style more novel and risky. In addition, it will be the first Gears of War videogame to adopt a structure similar to the open world like a wallpaper.
Gears of War 5 will propose to focus on Kait, one of the characters we met in the previous installment, inviting us to delve deeper into his personality, fears and motivations. The whole team of the fourth part will be present again, with JD Fenix and Marcus as the main claims, letting us fall that both new heroes and heroines will have direct contact with the veterans of the franchise. In fact, it will be the narrative, more intense than ever, that will take us to the place where it all began.
Deepening the fears of the soldiers who fought the Locust in their day, we will travel to the New Hope Research Facility of Gears of War 2. The new and the old will come together in harmony. The change of perspective, now with a woman at the centre of action and history, will also serve as a breath of fresh and revulsive air in the mechanics.
Kait will be a more agile, fast, capable and dynamic character. In this way, The Coalition wants to encourage shootings without coverage, something that until now had not been too common in the saga. Melee weapons, unprotected, stark combat and disputes with multiple enemies and aliens at once will be a keynote in Gears of War 5. This adds more variety to the development, which will move from action to stealth, from terror to exploration, and from covert shootings to more direct melee shots. Thus, the fifth part will take us to tour wide icy scenarios aboard a skiff, descend caves and mountains rappelling or visit new environments of a scale unusual in the series.
