Microsoft and The Coalition are preparing to open the floodgates of the multiplayer tech test of Gears 5, and they released two trailers showing gameplay.
First of all, we get a video in which Multiplayer Design Director Ryan Cleveland shows off the first versus footage and how the Escalation mode has evolved from Gears of War 4.
The second trailer showcases a flythrough of the first new map revealed for the new game, District, promising a classic Gears street fight. District will be playable when the multiplayer tech test opens on July 19, so we’re just a few days away from taking to the streets and smashing some skulls.
You can check both videos out below.
If you’re interested in Gears 5, we got plenty of reveals at Microsoft’s press briefing including another cinematic trailer, the introduction of the Escape mode, and the Terminator Dark Fate pack.
Speaking of Escape, we also got more videos showcasing its diverse characters.
You can also watch a cinematic cutscene from the story introducing Fahz.
Gears 5 is coming on September 10 for Xbox One and PC. Those who have Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will get to play four days early.
Following the multiplayer test on July 17, on August 19 hands-on opportunities with Horde Mode will be available at Gamescom.
