Gears 5 is getting a story add-on in December

Gears 5 isn't dead. Well, technically, no one thought it was. Developer The Coalition has been steadily supporting the multiplayer side, as Gears continues to make a push to be an esport game. But, in a surprising move, Gears 5&nb...

Playing Gears Tactics will get you a bonus in Gears 5

Gears fans should play Gears Tactics. It's not an essential part of the lore and it's not the classic Gears formula, but there's a lot of familiarity in Gears that translates well to turn-based strategy. I know I'm going to be lobbying...

The Batista Bomb is the most incredible Gears 5 execution

Would you like to pick up a naked monster and slam it into chunks? That's it. That's the lede, the highlight, and the premise of the whole damn article. Grapple a nude beast and powerbomb it so forcefully that all its limbs going flying in...

Gears 5 broke the records it should've broke

Gears 5 is a big game in a few different ways. It's big in that it's robust, packed with more content and modes than ever before. It's big in that it's important, the latest entry in one of Xbox's flagship series. And, it's big in that it's...

Review: Gears 5

It was the best of Gears, it was the worst of Gears. It was an amplification of everything every Gears before did well, and it was a maturation of everything those same games struggled with. It was an identity crisis, a dysmorphic preoccupa...

Review in Progress: Gears 5

Gears 5 takes risks, more than just dropping the "of War" from the title. There are structural changes so that developer The Coalition can sincerely call this the biggest Gears game ever. In service of that goal, it works. Gears 5...

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 ...

Microsoft confirms Gears Tactics for Xbox One

The Gears of War franchise got a lot of love at E3 2018. In addition to confirming the existence of Gears 5 (which no one thought was under debate), we also got the sort of satirical Gears Pop! and Gears Tactics confirmed as spin-offs for t...

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

Horde mode is going to have a different feel when Gears 5 launches in early September. Character selection is no longer a cosmetic preference; it's a strategy. During today's Inside Xbox at gamescom, developer The Coalition debuted Ge...

Gears 5's new mode turns kills into currency

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...

Look out Jordan, there's something behind you!

Something disastrous almost happened this morning. Jordan, an important COG in the Destructoid machine, was nearly gutted by a monster! It would've been a real low point for his blogging career, to have been torn apart limb by limb as a Swa...

Tomorrow, The Coalition is coming out with a shorter, more "intense" version of Horde mode in Gears of War 4. Dubbed Horde Frenzy, the new variant is 25 waves long (half the normal length) with bosses appearing every 5 waves. It's still a t...
