Gears 5 Possible Release Date Leaked

Ahead of E3 2019, a possible release date and box art for Gears 5 has been leaked by Taiwanese ratings board.

Following its official reveal back at E3 2018, developer studio The Coalition has been keeping quiet for their upcoming third-person shooter game Gears 5 and publisher Xbox Game Studios probably planning for a showcase at E3 2019.

We are now close to a year of its official announcement and looks like its release date has been leaked recently. Latest installment of Gears of War franchise is about to arrive sooner than we think, according to Taiwanese ratings board.

Despite what its developers and publishers have intended, a box art have been leaked from official Taiwanese Industrial Development Bureau and this information and a Spanish fan site Generacion Xbox has originally noticed it.

They also uncovered a possible launch date of September 10 for the game, which needs some confirmation though. However, it is very possible for Microsoft to choose that release window to avoid competing with major AAA-titles coming in October and November.

What they claim to be a possible cover of Gears 5 seems pretty legit, which prominently puts focus on Kait Diaz. She is holding a Locust pendant with Marcus Fenix on her right and Queen of the Locust Horde, Myrrah on her left.

Though Locust Queen was killed by the end of Gears of War 3, she appears in flashbacks or she probably was presumed dead and now is coming back. Del Walker and JD Fenix are on lower right corner, adjacent to two seemingly new enemies.

What is barely visible in blood stains in lower middle is probably Locust stronghold Mount Kadar and it make sense as in-game narrative would send you on a journey to Sera to discover Locust origins and their connection to Kait.

E3 will kick-off just in a month and we most probably would see this box art being revealed along with some more footage. A Microsoft platform exclusive title, Gears 5 will be launched on PC and Xbox One through Xbox Play Anywhere.

Gears of War 4 September Update '17

Grab your gears and get ready for war as summer is heading to an end. What does that means for us? Well, it means nothing if you aren't playing Gears of War 4, because the month of September is here and it is time for some sweet update on your game. The Coalition and Microsoft Studios seem to have a trend of bringing updates of this game every other month to keep the gamers hooked and guess what? It is working.

Before we get to the point where we go on details with what the update is offering us in September, why not check out the official September update trailer for a quick look into it.




Just like always, the September update features two brand-new maps to venture out from September 12. One of them is Mercy, the hometown of Dominic Santiago’s wife, Maria. Mercy is a classic fighting ground that players who played Gears of War 3 are very familiar with and its return was much anticipated. Whether it is close-quarters pew battles inside the church or the fight to rule the high ground, you will find the experience recognizable.

Then there is the second map called Harbor Haze! Now this one is set in day-time with dynamic mist mechanism. Meaning, it can appear when you least expect it. What significance it has for players? Well, the mist actually reduces your visibility and thus, lets you perform surprise attacks on your enemies. For those who already own the Season Pass, the two maps are already at their disposal and a 20% Bonus Credits for them.

The update brings you 500 gamerscore that you will probably unlock though 20 new achievements at the beginning period of the game. So, if you are paying some close attention, you will probably get them automatically anyway. Also, major changes to the matchmaking process as they remove the regional matchmaking system. So, players will now find better matches based on best data center available. The eagerly awaited in-game ping and scoreboard for everyone is no longer a dream.

The game will see 4K support for Xbox One X as well as new graphical enhancements in 2018.
