Gears of War 5
Gears 5 is the sixth installment in the Gears of War series (if Judgment spin-off is counted). It continues the plot of Gears of War 4, shifting the gameplay focus to another character.
The game is set on the fictional planet Sera that was inhabited not only by the humans but also by a race of lizard people called the Locust. Many years ago, the humans defeated the Locust invasion and annihilated most of the enemy race. However, the total war devastated much of Sera. Most of the planet currently resides in the walled cities that are under the control of the Coalition of Ordered Governments. The few rebels who defy the Coalition's rule are called the Outsiders.
Gears 5 is the first game in the series to have a character with Locust descent as the player character. The plot follows an Outsider called Kait Diaz, who was a secondary protagonist in Gears of War 4. After she discovers that she is a maternal granddaughter of the Locust Queen Myrrah, Kait sets off to discover more about her legacy and where the Locust race came from. Marcus Fenix, the protagonist of the first two games, and his son JD Fenix, who was the main character in Gears of War 4, return, this time as secondary characters.
The game features two multiplayer modes, a local and an online, both of them cooperative.
