Ever since Gears of War 2, the most addictive mode in the franchise has to be the Horde Mode and it is making a return in Gears 5. During the Inside Xbox Press Conference at Gamescom this evening, Microsoft and The Coalition showed off the first gameplay footage for Gears 5 Horde Mode and it looks like they are dialling everything up to 11 with increasingly daunting waves of enemies and all the Gears 5 action you could ever want.
The Gears 5 Horde Mode looks incredibly fun and players will be able to group up as a team of five. Every character now has its own ultimate ability, for example, Kate has the ability to turn invisible, while JD can call in a massive airstrike.You also need to move and expand your base to get power taps in order to power up your character. Every 10 waves, a daunting boss will spawn, which players will have to deal with as best they can.
Furthermore, power will now get equally distributed amongst your team, which is a great tweak to the iconic Gears of War mode. Then, you will also be able to control Jackpot, a jack-of-all-trades drone that can make its way through the map faster than ever before.

From the footage shown off at Gamescom 2019, the Gears 5 Horde Mode looks like a feature-filled, exciting mode that fans of the franchise should appreciate and love. The Coalition explains that the mode will be very deep but still remain accessible to new players.
Gears 5 is set to release on 10 September 2019 (6 September for Xbox Game Pass owners) on PC and Xbox One.
