Microsoft and Splash Damage will roll out their strategy game that has been available since April 28 on PC (Steam), Windows 10, Game Pass)) on the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One trio as well.
„Gears Tactics is the fast-paced, turn-based strategy game set 12 years before the first Gears of War. Cities on the planet Sera are beginning to fall to the monstrous threat rising from underground—the Locust Horde. With the government in disarray, a squad of survivors emerge as humanity’s last hope. Play as Gabe Diaz, recruiting, developing and commanding your squads on a desperate mission to hunt down the relentless and powerful leader of the Locust army: Ukkon, the mastermind monster who makes monsters. Against all odds and fighting for survival, outsmart your enemy in uniquely brutal, turn-based tactical combat. Experience the intensity of one of the most acclaimed video game sagas in an exciting new way.
[…] Play as the defiant soldier Gabe Diaz, rescuing and building your troops in a journey of leadership, survival and sacrifice. […] Prepare your troops to face tough enemies, upgrading their skills and outfitting them with loot collected in challenging missions. […] Command your squad in fast-paced, turn-based battles, advancing and surviving intense and visceral encounters with the unstoppable, swarming enemy. […] Defeat towering deadly bosses that defy your strategies and completely change the scale of the battle,” Gears Tactics’ Steam page reads.
Gears Tactics will launch on November 10 on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Xbox One. The Xbox Series S version should be about 30% smaller (we wrote about the reason why yesterday), and since the game uses Smart Delivery, the Xbox One version is also going to launch that day. Gears of War in a way we have never seen it? Sounds about right. On the same day, the PC version will also get a free patch. Jack will join the game, new enemies and higher-tier gear will arrive, and the controller will be easier to use with the game.
