Gears Tactics is the next installment in the Gears of War franchise. And it is very different from all the previous ones in the series since it is a turn-based strategy game in true XCOM style.

Gears of War has long been Microsoft’s premier gaming franchise, and has been used not only to power its Xbox consoles, but also to show its influence in the video game business. If until now it has been dominated by shooters, the series gives a change of course to a very different genre, but just as interesting: quick and turn-based strategy.

Gears Tactics is truly a prequel that takes place 12 years before the first Gears. The cities of the planet Sera begin to succumb to a monstrous threat, the Horde Locust, well known to lovers of the saga. Our protagonist is also known, a Gabe Diaz who has the mission of recruiting, developing and taking command of your platoon.

The game promises a immersive story focused on the characters and in addition to Diaz, we will see Mikayla Dorn, Marcella Trinh or Sid Redburn. Both the squad and the team will be fully customizable and can be upgraded after completing the game’s missions, including the battle against final bosses. Turn-based combat looks like Gears Tactics is the XCOM of the great Microsoft franchise.
