  • Gears 5 Operation 4 is bringing new characters, maps and more.
  • Today, The Coalition revealed that one of these new characters is Dom, from the original Gears of War trilogy.
  • Operation 4 is scheduled to begin on July 14.

Gears 5's current Operation is coming to an end and players can look forward to Operation 4: Brothers in Arms occuring very shortly. Ahead of this Operation, The Coalition shared a teaser indicating that one of the new playable characters will be Dominic Santiago. You can check out the quick teaser for Operation 4 that was released below:

Much like the Carmine brothers who were added during Operation 3, Dom will only be usable in PvP at launch, with PvE support coming a bit later. Other new characters and new maps will also be added in Operation 4.

Operation 4 is currently slated to begin on July 14. That means if you have anything else in Operation 3 that you'd like to earn, you've got one more week to grind it out. Gears 5 is available on Xbox One and PC via Game Pass for PC and Steam. Gears 5 will be an Xbox Series X Optimized title, with possible 120 FPS support.
