New Gears 5 Story Trailer Explores Kait Diaz’s Connection to the Locust Horde

Microsoft and The Coalition today revealed the story trailer for the highly anticipated Gears 5 at Gamescom.

The new trailer once again shifts the focus on Kait Diaz and her connection with the Locust.

And Gears of War fans are treated to cameos from fan-favorite characters like Marcus Fenix, Damon Baird and Augustus Cole.

“With all-out war descending, Kait Diaz breaks away to uncover her connection to the enemy and discovers the true danger to Sera — herself,” reads the description for the trailer.

Along with the story trailer, The Coalition also dropped a trailer for Horde to showcase the new improvements coming to the popular mode.

The Gears 5 developer has also confirmed that a ‘Halo: Reach Character Pack’ will be coming to the upcoming third-person cover-based shooter.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate holders and Gears 5: Ultimate Edition owners will receive access to two characters — Emile-A239 and Kat-B320 — from Halo: Reach.

The Coalition’s latest installment in the franchise will also have Terminator: Dark Fate-themed content available through pre-order or with the Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

Gears 5 players will be able to access the beloved Sarah Connor, voiced by actor Linda Hamilton, or a T-800 Terminator in the title.

Gears 5, which was announced at E3 2018, takes place after the events of Gears of War 4 and has Kait, JD, Marcus Fenix and Delmont Walker attempting to stop the growing threat of the Swarm on Sera.

Hardcore Gamer’s review for Gears of War 4 praised it for its “action-packed scenarios, superb multiplayer experience and top-tier shooting mechanics.”

Gears 5 will launch on September 10 and will be available on Xbox One and PC.
