E3 2019: Check out the new Gears 5 trailer

Microsoft have given fans a fresh look at Gears 5 (formerly Gears of War 5) during the Xbox E3 2019 press briefing. The game, which shifts its narrative focus from Gears of War 4‘s lead JD Fenix to team member Kait Diaz, looks to continue to franchise’s penchant for spectacle, chest high walls and chainsaw murder.

The announcement also came with the announcement of a new mode, Gears 5 Escape, a 3 player PvE mode similar to Call of Duty‘s popular Zombies mode. The trailer features Ozzy Osbourne, gibs, and three new Gears battling to survive. There’s also some Terminator DLC if you want it? We guess?

Gears 5 arrives September 10on Xbox One and Windows PC. It will also be available on launch via Xbox Game Pass.
