Previously, Geoff Keighley announced that we would see news from Xbox Game Studios but it was unclear what would be shown off.

We've seen a bit of the campaign already, with a glimpse from the E3 2018 reveal and the "Meet Fahz" cinematic that was released earlier in 2019. Still, that's only a tiny bit of what The Coalition has touted as the "largest Gears campaign we've ever built" so it's good that players will be getting another look at the campaign before launch.
For more information on Gears 5, you can check out my impressions of the Versus Tech Test that was held recently. Gears 5 is coming to Xbox One, Windows 10 and Steam. It's currently scheduled to release on September 10, 2019 (September 6 for the Ultimate Edition). As with all Xbox Game Studios titles, Gears 5 is included in Xbox Game Pass.
Bound by blood
Gears 5 promises to be the biggest Gears game yet, with five different modes and the largest campaign of the entire series. With Campaign, Horde, Versus, Escape and Builder all ready for players to dive in on at launch, there's never been a better time to be a Gears fan.
