On November 10th, Gears 5 gets a big update of the campaign again, for those who took the Xbox Series X | S, Gears 5 will receive a major technical update; and if that’s not enough, the Gear Tactics are also out.
We follow that up with Operation 5 which releases November 17. Finally, Gears 5 Hivebusters DLC is releasing this December.
What a wonderful time to be a fan of War Gears!
Renewal of Gear Campaign 5
Let’s take a look at what you will see in our major updates for the Gears 5 campaign.
Dave Batista in Gears 5
Living legend Dave Batista is coming to Gears 5!
Dave Batista is a big fan of Gears of War with Marcus Fenix, so we jumped at the chance to get him into the game. We worked with him and recorded all the Marcus lines while the art team re-created his image. The result is that Dave Batista is present throughout the campaign in both gameplay and cinema moments.
For those who want to keep the usual Gears heard – the original Marcus still exists.
The appearance of many players in the campaign
As Gears 5 introduced, we added tons of new bullets and weapons. Until now, these skins were only available on Multiplayer but not for long. As of November 10, you are playing as your favorite character and armor skins in the campaign. Note: This only applies to characters that can be played in each chapter and the skins will be visible in the cut corners.
5 gears get an extra challenge
For those who think they have found what they need, we have added two new ways to show you what you have.
We have brought back an unpleasant but demonic mode. The most difficult type of Gears 5 is here to press you to your limits.
If that’s not enough, Ironman Mode is for you. It’s easy, just complete the campaign without dying in any difficulty. No problem, right?
We can’t wait to see people complete the two Ironman / Inconceivable mode.
And for the success hunters out there, I’ve added 5 achievements (95 Gamerscore)
|You are ironed||Complete all chapters in Ironman Mode for more or less experienced difficulties||50|
|That Is Impossible!||Complete all the chapters with unimaginable difficulty||30|
|Showin ‘thin skin||Complete the Campaign chapter while using custom skin||5|
|Just to show||Kill 10 enemies using a weapon with custom skin||5|
|The Batista bomb||Complete all chapters in one Law while Batista as Marcus is empowered||5|
5 Gears Mutators
One of the major updates we are making is to include 16 changes that will change the look, complexity, and experience of the Gears 5 campaign.
We even offer you the option to select multiple changes at once (as long as they do not cancel). For example, if you’re looking for Big Heads, Friendly Fire on Gears 1 visuals – we’ve got you covered.
We know that Gears Fam is very smart so be sure to send us your favorite mutator combination!
