The storyline of the Gears of War trilogy has finally brought us its final act! One of the most exciting gameplay experiences ever designed, the third piece in the Gears of War story once again hands the player the torch for saving humanity from the Locust hordes that threaten to destroy the planet Sera and populate it with reptilian aliens. Epic Games has brought the Gears of War story to a shredding, blood spattering coup de grace. Humankind has been battling the underground Locust enemy for years. The new enemy is the "glowies," the Lambent who were infected from toxic Imulsion fluid that humans had pumped into the Locust tunnels in the Gears of War 2 storyline.
With its gun-mounted chainsaws and exceedingly buff protagonists, Gears of War might look like a mindless shooter, but that appearance hides a surprisingly dense backstory. In short, the planet Sera is transformed by the discovery of an abundant clean energy source called Imulsion, which eventually leads to economic disparity, war, and a complete rewriting of global politics. Years later, a hostile species called the Locust invade the surface from its underground home, leading in due time to the near destruction of humanity. Bonnie Jean Mah, Gears of War franchise narrative lead at The Coalition, told Screen Rant that the new game would resolve some questions that were raised back in the first three games. I can't say much about it here, but I think that fans are going to be rewarded for some of those questions that were brought up in the original trilogy. Those questions likely include how much government leaders knew about Imulsion before it started causing problems and what kind of contact humans had with the Locust before they emerged to attack the surface. The Coalition seems to be taking more risks with both the story and gameplay in Gears 5 after the successful but safe Gears of War 4.
But based on what I've already seen of the sprawling game the sixth of its series , that may already be a moot point. After a six-hour gameplay event at Microsoft's Coalition studio—and hours more spent testing its online versus options in a July beta test—I've come to a conclusion that I can't shake off. The Xbox Game Pass subscription service now has its official, signature game: the something-for-everyone blockbuster that lands less as a "must-buy" product and more as a no-brainer action game to sample.

But there will also be a short campaign called "Aftermath" that takes place concurrently with the near-final moments of Gears of War 3. The brief two-hour-or-so campaign follows two series regulars, Baird and Cole, at the moment near the end of Gears 3 when they broke off from series hero Marcus Fenix to gather some troops. The "Aftermath" in question isn't so much the aftermath of the third Gears game but the aftermath of the main prequel campaign of Judgment. Baird and Cole are the lead characters in that adventure and, in Aftermath, reunite with two of the other main Judgment characters. We're seeing and playing these people years later, seeing what's become of them.
Im suprised he or someone else hasnt reposted this and that it didnt get as much attention the first time as its amazing, im hoping we can get this updated since Gears 4 and the Rise of Raam comics have been release. Ill gladly delete this and allow Joveus to repost this and possibly update if it still interests him, i feel with so much effort, new comics and a new game coming up. It would be nice to keep this going. Perhaps you want to play and read through the entire series chronologically, but cannot quite remember how everything fits together. This thread is designed to provide information on the order, release dates, and chronology of the Gears of War games, books and comics.
Gears 5 proves that when it comes to heart-pumping firefights and slick shooting mechanics, it is still king. But while we appreciate The Coalition experimenting with open-world elements and trying to build a deeper narrative, it doesn't always stick the landing. It's been nearly 13 years since the release of the original Gears of War and it's fair to say the series has changed a lot - it's not quite the same meat-headed testosterone-fest that it used to be. We don't mean that in a bad way. When the original Gears of War came out in , we weren't looking for much more from our shooters beyond mindless fun: point gun, shoot gun, dead enemy. The B-movie-meetss-action-flick vibes were something we had loved and, in some cases, still do. But The Coalition has tried to do something with Gears that few game franchises have managed to achieve: modernize gameplay without losing the key elements that made the series so beloved in the first place.
