Gears Tactics is finally coming to Xbox consoles on November 10th after months of being a Windows 10 and Steam PC exclusive.
A tweet from the official Gears of War Twitter account confirms the news. Gears Tactics is set during the Locust Wars and acts as a prequel to the Gears series. You play as Gabe Diaz, the father of Kate Diaz from previous Gears 4 and 5, and set out to stop a Locust scientist named Ukkon. Ukkon is responsible for the creation and mechanical modification of beasts such as the Brumak and Corpser.
Gameplay is turn-based and played from a top-down perspective. Players command a squad and work their way through levels defeating enemies as they go. It’s all very XCOM-like. The game was well-received by both critics and players. Here on TA, our review gave Gears Tactics a 4/5.
Gears Tactics comes to Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S on November 10th and will be available with Xbox Game Pass.
