Recap of Gears 4 video is part of opening cinematic, can't miss it. Shows you everything you need to know. Also there is a summary of original trilogy in Extras menu.
I dont think so theres a pretty good previously on gears video that plays when you start the campaign which explains all the major stuff
Very cool. I think I'll start with 4 and see how I like it. If it's not clicking I'll just watch a video and jump into 5.I don't think that there's many people who didn't like 4's campaign, it was just unremarkable. There were some great bits in it, and some bad bits as well, but overall it was just good, and it felt too safe to anyone already well acquainted with Gears. To someone who hasn't played a Gears game before, 4 could be a good starting-off point, and the story of 5 is a direct continuation.
Of course, I would also recommend playing the older games, as they're still great and a lot of fun, but that can wait. Gears 4, then 5 is what I think would work best for newcomers, although 5 can also be played on its own if you watch the two videos found under Extras. Gears 5 contains many cool touches for long time fans of the series, however.
Agreed 100%. I was stoked to fight a new enemy but found the section focusing on Deebees a bit of a slog. I was shocked that the game was over after beating what i thought was a sub-boss. Still, enjoyed myself.
Ok now I’m going to have to un-politely disagree with this opinion. I mean I like ice bound but asylum and ESPECIALLY exhibit shit on it tbh. Each their own ig, kinda curious why you love icebound so much?
I'm also curious as to what these numbers mean.
If there were more things like act 1 whilst having sections like act 2 and 3 (haven’t even reached 3 so idk the rest) I’d be all for that tbh. Make it open world when it needs to be, I felt like act 2 was good breather from act 1 and I liked all the lore stuff that was there, but man the opening of the game was straight high octane Michael bay mayhem... which is exactly what I expect from gears. To bad critics don’t see it that way. They c an only love the linear parts ONLY if it’s paired with the more open areas because.... because that’s the cool thing nowadays I guess? Either way I still liked it, but in all honesty all it was is a wait time to get to the next chess match/war zone/gears combat that I love so much, which is appreciated but it also like, ok, thanks I guess? Ya know what I mean? Wasn’t that necessary, cool to have but not necessary.
Honestly, I was looking forward to fighting new enemies. I never had a problem with the concept of fighting deebees, the problem is they're boring to fight.
Can the campaign be played in 3 player coop or is it just 2? PC version.Sorry if this has been asked before (OP didn't mention it) but apparently, for the PC version, there is no splitscreen for Horde and Escape modes?
Is there any chance this would get patched in later on? Because that is some honest-to-god bullshit, I was planning on playing this with my SO, and while I'd still enjoy the campaign, Horde was a lot of fun too and it really makes me want to wait for a price drop...
You get skill cards as a reward for completing the hive. On higher difficulties you can unlock better skill cards (rare, exotic, etc). When choosing difficulty, there is icon on the left, showing what type of card you can unlock.
It might be related to the issues with collectables and campaign progression that have resurfaced. I've stopped playing for the time being as the Security Memorandum collectable in 2-4 wasn't flagged as found, even though it's tied to a side-mission, and I can only assume I'll encounter more problems if I progress further.
