Gears 5 Gets New Trailer, Release Date, and Terminator Crossover Content

gears 5

Today, during Microsoft’s E3 press briefing in Los Angeles, Xbox showcased its upcoming first-party game Gears 5.

After a brief new cinematic trailer, starting in a really unsettling way, and the message “Bound by Blood,” we get a trailer showcasing a look at a co-op mode named Escape.

We also learn that the game is coming on September 10, while those who have Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will get to play four days early.

On July 17 there will be a multiplayer test, while on August 19 there will be hands-on with Horde Mode at Gamescom.

Anyone who pre-orders and plays within the first week will receive the “Terminator: Dark Fate” pack, which is also showcased in another trailer below.

That’s certainly a rather surprising crossover, but it’s exciting none-the-less and in a way rather appropriate considering the dark future setting of Gears of War. You can check all the videos out below.

Speaking of Gears, we also get a look at Gears POP! for mobile platforms. It will be available for pre-order soon on iOS and Android.

You can also check out the whole press conference for a full look at all the news revealed today under Microsoft’s large umbrella.
