Though The Coalition’s Gears 5 hasn’t really been reaping any awards, Splash Damage’s Gears Tactics received a release date at The Game Awards 2019. It’s out on April 28th 2020 on PC for Steam and Windows 10 along with being available for Xbox Game Pass. Check out the newest trailer below which features both cinematic scenes and gameplay.
Unlike the main franchise, Gears Tactics is a turn-based tactical strategy game. Along with recruiting other soldiers to fight for your cause, you’ll battle Locust enemies like the Drones and Brumak. The goal is to hunt down the mastermind behind it all while overcoming the odds through tactics and sound strategy. So of course you should be ready to fail and reload often.
With an over 40 hour long campaign, Gears Tactics is looking to be a fairly meaty tactical strategy title for genre fans. The Xbox One version wasn’t mentioned but perhaps we’ll hear more about it once the PC version is out. Stay tuned for more announcements and world premieres from the show.
