sorry to say, but that is a terrible cover

looks like something out of the REBOOT cartoon show back in the 90's

Huh, weird cover. I would think they could get a better render of her. makes me think it has to be fake.

I totally forgot this was even coming.

I loved Gears and Halo during the 360 gen, it's a shame I don't really care much now. Hopefully that'll change.

Everyone refers to the series as “Gears” so Rod Fergusson (studio head) decided to shorten it.

Box art looks dope (especially compared to Gears 4) and the Queen being back is HUGE, also September 10th is way earlier than I imagined (was thinking mid October) wonder where this leaves Ori? was certain that would be early September, especially with no Forza this year.

That's among the worst covers I've ever seen. Having a woman in the centre is great but the overall design is wtf.

I don't think that graphic is real. Some of the characters are poorly cutout and poorly blended together as well. The whole composition is awkward.

So this game will be pretty different from the others right? More open level design, more focus on Locust lore etc?

What is up with Myrrah's face? Was she reincarnated in a different ethnicity?

What is so horrible about the cover? Lmao, it doesn't look great but it's not bad either, it's fine... just like the majority of game covers, I will take this one over your common white guy posing with a gun and nothing else more cover

Honestly probably a GOTY contender. I feel completely comfortable saying that right now this is looking to be a banger

New enemy looks like a cross between a Beserker and the Gears 3 Kantus, wouldn't be surprised if the box art is an early draft.

I’m guessing real. Seems to follow the Gears cover tradition of main characters showing off the new weapons in a V formation.

We already knew Myrrah would be in the game in some form since the reveal trailer, but it’s interesting that she’s in her Gears 3 armor on this cover and in her Gears 2 armor in the trailer dream sequences.

A few questions: what gun is Del holding? What’s up with that Armored Kantus? Is that the new RAAM/Skorge? Hmmm...
