Gears 5 is a third-person shooter that has quite a strong multiplayer following even until now. The Coalition has updated the game several times since then, each time adding new features and balancing weapons.
However, it looks like the best is ahead of us. Today, the team revealed a first look at "Operation 3: Gridiron." The trailer is quite bombastic and reveals a lot of details. The update launches on March 31.
As you can see, new characters and maps will be added to the game. The highlight of the experience has to be the titular mode, Gridiron, which features one life. Gears 5 multiplayer is already a hectic experience, and Gridiron will probably add even more intensity to the game.
In Windows Central's review, Jez Corden wrote, "While some of the new elements come across as a bit under-iterated and rudimentary, it's the basis for growth that is perhaps the most exciting aspect as a long-time Gears fan. The Coalition shows that the franchise has legs for some serious longevity."
Kicking it up a gear
Gears 5 shows that The Coalition is ready to put its mark on this legendary franchise. It blends a semi-open world design when it comes to the campaign with intense gameplay.
