Gears 5 Launch Trailer
Chainsaw guns are back! This new Gears Of War game shortens its title but expands on a thumping, action-oriented vision that includes a graphical overhaul, a bigger campaign, a larger and more open world to traverse, and both new and improved game modes. Released to a very strong reception, available as part of the Xbox Game Pass subscription scheme or as a separate purchase. The trailer features a cover of Fleetwood Mac's The Chain as sung by Evanescence's Amy Lee.

Made by the Pokémon franchise studio with a soundtrack from Undertale developer Toby Fox, this adventure does have fantastical Pokémon-style creatures – but they're giant-size and not all that friendly, so it's time to find out why they're bothering the town and solve the mystery once and for all.

Coming soon to Mac and PC
