With Gears Funko and Gears Tactics announced, it seems that Microsoft's flagship Locust blasting franchise is going big, with Gears of War 5 also officially confirmed for Xbox One.

In Gears of War 5, players will take the role of Kait, journey across the biggest, most attractive Gears world ever created.

The fan-favorite Gears of War series is back with an awesome new trailer to get fans hyped for the fifth installment of the third person shooter.

Microsoft also released an extended cinematic trailer that features J.D. Fenix as he attempts to evacuate Kait and her friends. One is a spinoff based on a Funko Pop look, while Gears Tactics is a turn-based strategy game.

The trailer serves as a teaser for "Gears Pop", but shows no actual gameplay. It's set 12 years before the first Gears of War game, but no other details of that title are now known.

Given Gears of War 4's success and longevity in the esports world, we fully expect this title to pick up the multiplayer right where it left off, as well. We wish we knew more about it, but that's literally all we know.
