One of the great exclusive of Microsoft and probably for many one of the most important titles of 2019, is Gears 5 , the next installment of the most valuable franchise - along with Halo - that has Xbox. Being very expected, it is true that since The Coalition have not shared much information since last year, becoming every bit of it in very valuable material for fans.

And today, as usual in Generation Xbox, we like to investigate where we can, we have found an exclusive that you will like, the official cover of Gears 5, which has appeared listed in the Taiwanese system of age classification. As at this point we are proficient in the language, we have also found more juicy information than if it is possible that it is subject to changes, because it is usual that this list can be renewed at some time.



Gears 5 is going to September

The other data we have found is the possible launch date , September 10. As it happened with the remake of the first Gears of War, it is possible that Gears 5 is unmarked of its possible competitors ahead of its departure to September to avoid having to compete in the marabunta of AAA titles of October and November, a very clever move of Microsoft .

But going back to the cover, can you draw any conclusions about the characters that appear? No doubt Kait is the protagonist , but it seems that there is some other character that will be present.

I didn't want to make another thread so just adding more info.

Gears 5: New Ephyra would be the center of the conflict between Locust and Gears

The bet of The Coalition and Xbox Game Studios with Gears 5 seems to be titanic. While it is true that in terms of magnitude, Halo: Infinite stole enough prominence, the fifth numbered delivery of the franchise that started Marcus Fenix and his teammates arrives this year and would be one of the first games of "the new and renewed" division of Microsoft games.

A much more ambitious project that promises to leave us speechless. We already know enough about the game, but there is never any additional information. This time thanks to official forums almost confirmed the theory that New Ephyra will be present in the wars of the new installment of Gears of War.


New Ephyra in Gears 5


In Gears of War 4 we could see New Ephyra, the capital of the COG. At the beginning of the fourth installment, Jinn made his speech with the hundreds of citizens who now populate this new city. Well, according to the images of the Gears 5 trailer, the pavements and many textures match those we saw at the beginning of the game. Likewise, a shattered Raven argues that this war scenario that we saw last E3 2018, is being battered by conflict. To this the theories around this scenario, assure that obviously there is no great vegetation, so it would be a sign that someone would be in charge of it, once again a house with which we are facing an inhabited city.





In addition, no architectural element coincides with ancient ruined cities, something that we saw too much in the fourth installment. So everything indicates that there will be a climax where El Enjambre will once again take the battle to the heart of humanity.

Shitty fake cover aside.....the game looks awesome. Hyped....Can't wait to see more at E3.

Excited to see how they plan to evolve the gameplay, story looks darker.

This could be the best Gears in a while.

This is probably heresy on another forum but im going to say it anyways: I dont see how a "female" lead with James Charles facial features is going to go over in the xbox/gears fanbase. I assume some will be there day one because loyal fanbases and all that but this doesnt seem to me to be the franchise to switch from all lead males to females because "muh diversity." Xbox is in no position to be messing with the few golden gooses they have left. This seems like a big risky bet with little to no upside. Having a female lead wont bring in female gamers to this franchise or console.

Not sure what it is but something about that cover looks off... Like the scaling of the woman doesn't fit in with the rest and the title logo appears to be too small? But maybe that's just me.

Why,Is the First After 4 titles ... Who else can be an another lead character? And...you know .. what do you think if the developers can't make a female lead for the anti sjw community? Is the same to make a female lead for the sjw community... You can't have both

Your post is barely comprehensible but im going to give it a shot...Im not up to date on my Gears lore and whose who so i have no idea who the lead should be. People liked Marcus Pheonix so if it aint broke dont fix it would be my motto. If the coalition or xbox think they are going to drastically expand the potential customer base because of adding a waymen, well, IDK about that,

Gears 5 Release Date Possibly Leaked

According to Generation Xbox, which is a Spanish outlet that focuses on Xbox coverage, the Taiwanese rating board has a listing that features both the cover art for Gears 5, and the release date. The former looks pretty real, which is to say, if it's a fake, it's a pretty good fake. Meanwhile, the rating claims the game will release on September 10, which is a Tuesday, the most common release date for big games alongside Friday. In other words, the date checks out as well.


Of course, take this with a major grain of salt. Everything seems to check out, but that's the case with many fake "leaks." Thankfully, we should find out if it's accurate soon enough, because I suspect a release date and cover art will be revealed at E3 alongside an extended gameplay trailer.

Gears 5 is in development for Xbox One and PC and is slated to release sometime this year. For more news and media on the game, click here. For more information on the highly-anticipated shooter, here's a brief and official pitch:

"The world is crumbling. Humanity’s reliance on technology has become their downfall and enemies are uniting to wipe out all survivors. As Kait you must journey across the biggest, most beautiful Gears world to uncover the origins of the Locust, and fight with your squad to protect what’s left."
