Reason being...it's just more of the same. The graphics looks no better than 4 and the gameplay will no doubt be very similar if not an exact copy. What i think needs to be done is an overhaul of new animations and just gunplay/gameplay. It needs to feel and look different yet still keep the core mechanics. I have no doubt in the mind that if cliffy b was still working on gears it would have evolved by now.

What are peoples thoughts, are you still hyped?

Last game looked great, changes coming will likely be in gameplay in enemy design. I think we'll see an evolution in enemies hinted at in last game, a melding together of swarm and DBs. I expect each game will make new additions to weapons. And a Horde mode on par with Gears 4 will satisfy me.

I really enjoyed Gears of War 4 and what little was shown of Gears 5 at E3 looked great to me so yeah I’m hyped for this next game.

Gears 5 is going to be fine. I'm pretty keen to see how the story is going to go.

I don't know. I've seen very little of the game but DF made a comparison recently and graphically it appears to have lots of improvements.

This series, like Uncharted, has run its course with me. The game play is just so...boring and stale to me. I'm sure people who like the series will like the game. But for me, zero chance I'll give two shits about it.

As long as it doesn't suck as bad as Halo 5, it will do alright.

I don't think so... I liked what they showed at E3. I think it looks promising. I liked the story and characters in 4, and 5 looks to build on that. Im all in.

It's hard to say this as a long time gears fan... The game looks meh. I wasn't a fan of where they were going with the plot in gears of war 4, and 5 looks even worse. I might be skipping this one.

I liked what I saw at E3 and the DF analysis of the demo footage showed significant graphical improvements compared to 4. The darker turn of the storyline is welcome, and I'll just wait until release to find out how the game turns out. This will be the game that really shows us what the Coalition is capable of... I hope they deliver.

I can understand their reluctance to change the formula too much for Gears 4, their mandate must have been to create a next Gen Gears game, but changing too much could alienate the core fans. The gameplay additions such as wall jumping and vertical sniping(Dropshot) were excellent additions, and I Want to see them make their mark more in 5. One of the things I really want is for them to add a little more style and pizzazz to the core move set. I don't want the roadie run to feel exactly the same as before, don't change it too much but put your own little original spin on it. For horde I want to see it expanded upon with more enemy variety. Looking forward to release

That's why you skip a few games.

Last Gears i played was 2, so i can jump in the series like a brand new and confused fan.

Why would I when the gameplay just doesn't do it for me? it's why i didn't get that Uncharted expansion...or whatever it was. I can say confidently, unless there is a huge difference in gameplay, I will not play either again.

Gears 4 honestly felt like I was playing gears 1 with nicer graphics. The game has not evolved in the slightest. The story sucks, the characters were forgettable... it’s just a tired phone it in franchise.

Gears 5 looks like more of the same. I can’t believe people think this is a killer app lol. Only killer app for xbone is forza

Gears is fine, it’s just a played-out franchise. Of MS’ pillar studios, The Coalition is the most resigned to mediocrity for having to be enslaved to making Gears games ad infinitum.

The Initiative is MS’ best hope at birthing a property of mass popularity.

All microsoft does is add robots to halo and gears and replace blood to give it a kiddie rating just like the star wars prequels

Gears 4 was a big disappointment.

It wasn’t as terrible as Judgement, but by god, they barely added anything new gameplay wise.

The story sucked too.

The game looks really good. If it doesn't do well, chalk it up to the typical Xbox fan apathy and sexism. I rather play as Kait for a change than the other meatnecks.

Kait was the only interesting new character in 4.

It’s a dying tired franchise. There was nothing that stood out from its showing at E3, anyone who says otherwise is lying to themselves. It’s more Gears as usual. Lems will eat it up but most people have moved on, it’s the same old tired shit.

kinda makes me think of uncharted with the wide view sailing (I expect a weaker version of UC4's chase cinematics) and implied verticality when the girl rappelled. I'd play the SP of GeoW5 if I still had my OG XB1 though since I want more AAA SP TPS.

I think gears 5 will do very well the change in direction from what we saw at E3 has me convinced.

The single player is probably not going to be all that refreshing but it's multiplayer is generally unmatched in the 3rd person shooter space. If multiplayer isn't great then yeah, it won't do well.

Gears 4 added a bunch of improvements to horde mode. And the movement and balancing of the weapons in versus is a lot better than gears 3.

The Single player campaign in 4 was okay but defiantly its weakest link. If 5 can improve the campaign and make horde/versus good it will be an awesome title. (Sorry for any typos it’s eaely in the morning and havnt had my caffeine fill yet)

Don't care about campaign/story at this point. Getting through 4 was a struggle. May or may not play 5's.

Online multiplayer was well done (getting rid of wingman was stupid and it better comeback) and horde was pretty addictive. I do hope they tone down the microtransaction/ lootbox stuff - seems like that was a big sticking point for a lot of people. Long as they don't screw up the online it'll be ok.

This is why Sony fanboys are the most Toxic than any other. Openly hating just because it's not your platform of choice.

Gears 4 is amazing looking on the S with HDR and even better on the X!

It also has some of the best multiplayer fun around but cows would know nothing about that. I love Gears, you don't? Your loss.

I was going to bring that up. DF sees the graphics improvements but TC doesn't. Oh well LOL

All anyone has seen is a trailer with glimpses of melee combat in the game. I don't expect major changes to Gears core gameplay. They would lose the MP gamers that play and compete in it.

In short, I think Gears 5 will do better than TC thinks.

I will buy Gears of War 5. It is one of my guilty pleasures. For Gears of War to "progress" maybe not really needed. Since it is just "big Dumb fun" third person shooter.

Gears 4 is a blast. Best multi player of all the games yet. And I liked the story. Again the likes of you like to play games alone would not appreciate the fun of multiplayer.

We don't have to agree. I will sleep just fine tonight.

I actually enjoy MP shooters. Gears MP always sucked and was never anything more than a shotgun fest full of meathead players.

Halo had some great MP up until 4 when 343 killed the franchise.

These days both franchises have small cult-like communities left at best. Games like Rainbow Six, Fortnite, Overwatch and CoD dominate the MP scene and guess what? They all have more players on PS4 than Xbone which is why MS is begging Sony to allow crossplay.
