Gears 5: The New Tech Test Trailer Shows Arcade Mode in Action

Gears 5: The Coalition Unveils the Official Cover of the Game

Microsoft and The Coalition are back to show Gears 5 with a new trailer. The video, which as usual we have reported on top of the news, is centered on the imminent tech test to be held on PC Windows 10 and Xbox One on 19 July.

Participants in this trial version of the third-person shooter will be able to experience the Arcade Mode, an absolute novelty for the series. The mode promises to offer an extreme and frenetic experience, in which players will have to collect points by eliminating enemies and using them to stock up on increasingly powerful weapons and death tools. You can choose between five characters from the game that can be combined with as many different classes so that you can fully customize your gameplay style.

The tech test will offer three modes in all: the aforementioned Arcade Mode, Escalation Mode and King of the Hill. There will also be the Bootcamp (which will be the training mode) and the Tour of Duty, which will allow you to unlock exclusive skins and banners that you can then redeem even in the full game. 
The trial version will start on July 19th and will run until July 21st, while a second session is scheduled from the 26th to the 29th of the same month.

Gears 5 will be released on PC Windows 10 and Xbox One on September 10, 2019. In recent days, the development team’s choice to remove all references to smoking within the new shooter has been much discussed.
