Microsoft’s Gears of War franchise goes in an unexpected direction with Gears Tactics, a new turn-based strategy title. The game is currently only a few weeks away, leading to the company revealing a brand-new trailer. It explains the game’s classes and its heroes, hyping players up for the game’s release. The title’s Steam page discusses more as well:
Gears Tactics is the fast-paced, turn-based strategy game set 12 years before the first Gears of War. Cities on the planet Sera are beginning to fall to the monstrous threat rising from underground – the Locust Horde. With the government in disarray, a squad of survivors emerge as humanity’s last hope. Play as Gabe Diaz, recruiting, developing and commanding your squads on a desperate mission to hunt down the relentless and powerful leader of the Locust army: Ukkon, the mastermind monster who makes monsters. Against all odds and fighting for survival, outsmart your enemy in uniquely brutal, turn-based tactical combat. Experience the intensity of one of the most-acclaimed video game sagas in an exciting new way.
Gears Tactics comes to Xbox Game Pass for PC and Steam on April 28th. An Xbox One X release is also planned.
