E3 2018: Gears Universe Expands With Gears Tactics

Gears of War got plenty of attention during the Microsoft press briefing this year, getting not one announcement, but three. Alongside a new Gears of War mobile game and the expected mainline entry of Gears of War 5, Microsoft also revealed Gears Tactics. This new entry into the Gears of War franchise appears to offer fans a very XCOM-esque take on the Locust/Human conflict they’ve become so familiar with over the years.

Based on the footage shown, Gears Tactics will follow a new set of characters and will pit them against both normal enemy squads and the massive bosses Gears is known for. Gears Tactics is currently set to release exclusively for the PC sometime in the future.
