Of Course Gears 5 Has a Horde Mode

first_img What first comes to mind when you think about Gears of War? Is it guns with chainsaws on them? Is it Marcus Fenix’s doo rag? Is it trailers with sad Mad World covers? Or is it general nostalgia for one of Microsoft’s most iconic Xbox 360-era franchises? Cole Train baby?Well the right answer should be Horde Mode. Arguably Gears’ greatest contribution to online shooter co-op multiplayer was the novel idea that you and your friends could team up to fight increasingly tough waves of monsters. Pretty much every other game ripped off this survival concept. So whenever a new Gears of War game comes out, the team has to prove once again that they aren’t only the original but also the best when it comes to Horde Mode.So check out this first trailer for Horde Mode in Gears 5.Gears 5 isn’t trying to fix what isn’t broken. It’s not like they added Funko Pops are anything. Horde Mode still has you coordinating with teammates to build defenses and take down as many foes as you can while achieving key objectives. The game just gives you more options for strategic slaughter. Perhaps inspired by hero-based multiplayer games like Apex Legends and Overwatch, each character now has a unique Ultimate ability to use on the battlefield. Hijack enemies, call down airstrikes, cloak yourself, and see through walls.In Gears 5 Horde Mode you’ll primarily play as characters from the campaign, including new lead Kait Diaz.
