Gears Tactics Releases Very Soon, Launch Trailer Highlights Game Mechanics And More

Gears Tactics' new launch trailer gives you an overview of what to expect when it hits PC later this month.


With Gears Tactics getting ready to hit PC on April 28, developers The Coalition and Splash Damage have shared a brand-new launch trailer that sets the stage for the spin-off's story and gameplay.

The trailer, embedded below, shows some of Gears Tactics' gameplay elements, including the classes, skills, and enemy encounters you can expect. It also introduces the game's characters, as well as the rewards you can earn (without participating in microtransactions because Gears Tactics doesn't have any). There's plenty of customization, ways to extend turns, some lighthearted humor, and more in the trailer as well.

Subscribers to either Xbox Game Pass for PC or Game Pass Ultimate can pre-install Gears Tactics on Windows 10 PCs right now. Those who purchase Gears 5 before April 28 will save 15% on Gears Tactics.

The Coalition announced that Gears Tactics went gold earlier this month, signaling that the tactical spin-off is primed and ready for distribution. In a partnership with Intel, anyone who purchases the company's microprocessors--such as the Intel Core i5 or higher--will receive Gears Tactics for free. The studio also noted that the game will launch on Xbox One sometime in the future.
