Gears 5 studio apologizes for outages with free stuff

Online games are known for bumpy launches, and Gears 5 was no exception. Although it may seem like Gears 5 officially launched last week, it kind of didn't. Only the Ultimate Edition went live on September 6, with the fu...

Dave Bautista will be playable in Gears 5

I guess all that campaigning to star in the Gears of War movie has paid off. In Gears 5, players will be able to assume the identity of Dave Bautista and kill some grubs. The former WWE superstar announced his inclusion in The Coalition's ...

Gears Pop! is now available on PC and mobile

One of the weirder announcements of E3 2018 was Gears Pop! Mashing Gears of War with the stupidly popular Funko Pop brand, many thought it was a big joke before Microsoft confirmed it would be a free-to-play game landing on mobile devices. ...

Gears 5 launches on Steam at the same time as Windows 10 PC

Gears 5 formally arrives on September 10 on Xbox One and Windows 10. We've known that much since E3. However, a lingering question mark has been when the Steam version would launch. It's reasonable to think Microsoft might give itself ...

Gears 5 turns Horde mode into a hero shooter

Gears 5's Escape mode scratches the Gears co-op itch

In some ways, Gears 5's Escape mode is a subversion. This series has been so entrenched in Horde mode ever since Gears of War 2, you and all your teammates hunkered down in the, well, trenches. Stay immobile, pop up at opportune times, keep...
