Gears Tactics had a new trailer at the Game Awards 2019, alongside a rush of new information on the upcoming Gears game and how it is changing the formula. In addition to the game, there's an accompanying art book, The Art of Gears Tactics. Published by Titan Books, this has 192 pages filled with concept art of the environments, equipment, characters and enemies in the game.

Preorders are now open for The Art of Gears Tactics for $45 from Amazon. Set 12 years before the original Gears of War, Gears Tactics follows a squad led by Gabe Diaz, who is hunting down a Locust leader named Ukkon. Gears Tactics is advertised as having a campaign over 40 hours long, so this art book will likely have plentiful, varied content fans will find interesting.

Gears Tactics is set to release for PC through Xbox Game Pass for PC and Steam on April 28, 2020. It will be coming to Xbox at a later date, though we don't know when exactly for now.
