The newest Gears of War game drops this week and it is different than every previous game in the franchise. Because it ain’t a cover shooter. Gears Tactics is a turn-based strategy game.

I guess technically Gears Pop!, that mobile game that came out a while back, isn’t a cover shooter either. But nobody really cares about that game. I even played it for a few weeks when it came out and I barely remember it ever released. (Also the headline is a reference to Halo. Xbox synergy.)

Beyond Gears Tactics, other stuff is coming out too. Check out the full list below:
