The fifth mainline game in the Gears of War franchise, Gears 5 primarily follows Kait Diaz, as humanity's new war with the Swarm continues to ramp up.

Gears 5 will launch on September 10 generally, with early access granted for Ultimate Edition owners and Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. It's comprised of several game modes, including the main campaign, a Left 4 Dead-style Escape mode, and a reactive arena PvE mode called Horde. On top of all that is Versus multiplayer, which now includes a more accessible Arcade mode.
