Are you ready to chainsaw some more Locusts and (hopefully) spelunk the innards of another giant worm? Well, good news: Gears 5 is coming out on September 10.

Microsoft announced the date today during its E3 press conference. It also showed off new trailers and announced a new mode called “Escape.”

In Escape, a squad of three players infiltrates a hive, plants a bomb, and tries to escape. You’ll also be able to build your own hives and challenge your friends. Who hasn’t wanted to build a hive for their friends, I ask you.

DISCUSSION

I’m so torn. What I’ve seen from the story trailers so far and as someone who did play the originally through, and was so pissed off about GoW 3, I’m actually pretty intrigued by this.

However, in order to play it, I’d have to play through GoW4 first and the main characters and story there seems so generic that I find it really hard to muster the energy for it.
