Gears of War 5 to be Released in September Along PC Exclusive Gears Tactics

It looks like E3 will be a very good event for Microsoft, which will have its hands full of announcements during the show. According to the latest rumors, Gears 5, the latest release in the Gears of Wars franchise, will be launched in September this year. The supposed launch will be happening during Microsoft's E3 conference. Besides Gears 5, Microsoft will launch PC exclusive game Gears Tactics.

As rumors suggest, we will be getting new Gears of War 5 game in September of this year. The new game is launching as a sequel to the well-known Gears of War 4 game, which showed focus on story and tactics driven gameplay. We expect its sequel to be no different. With many improvements in the game's graphics, we should expect to see high-quality game gameplay given the heritage the previous release, Gears 4, left us with.
In addition to Gears 5, Microsoft will launch the PC exclusive Gears Tactics, turn-based tactics with gameplay style very similar to XCOM, rather than any Gears of War game before. While it is something different from its franchise, there shouldn't be lack of thrilling gameplay with many boss fights.

I really hope Microsoft is able to pull off this multi platform push. The PC community needs this to work or I’m worried in ten years there won’t be anything more then smart TVs that just stream games from some service in the cloud.

I realize we are all PC enthusiasts here. However, why continue to drop $2000-$3000 dollars on high pc hardware which obsoletes in 5 years, when you could just stream?

Because we are PC enthusiasts.

I have no wish to stream games at lesser graphics and frames and wait for the inevitable game drop when my cable goes out.

I think internet speeds will eventually reach a point when that is not an issue. Where I live 1 gbps is standard for $68.99 via fiber. That is up and down. 10 gbps is also available to consumers.

There is not a compelling argument against it in my opinion. Financials will eventually win out.

And it still doesn’t address cable going out. No thanks.

On top of that, we have broad swaths of this country with minimal bandwidth. Many of our U. S. members on TPU can attest to this.

I’m gonna miss building my own rig and rigs for friends and family but I believe the other op’s are going to be right in the end. It’s gonna be too expensive to keep up with modern hardware or manufacturers will stop making gaming hardware because the demand is gone or because of the streaming services are dominating the market. Unfortunately it’s the casual gamers that will control the market.

My god! I can only Dream of having internet like that for that cost! I pay more for 50Mbps per month and wont see fiber for at least another 10-20yrs! like most Australians. There would be 100s of millions of people world wide that couldnt stream a game because of how shit the internet is, its just not a viable solution at this time.

Meanwhile here in good ol´ Germany I´m stuck with "up to" 6Mbps down and 2,4Mbps up but usually with what you see in my signature. A 1080p 60 FPS stream is borderline doable but 1440p is off the table and 4k with an hour of buffering.
And since the big companys don´t care about users not living in city centers it looks like I´m stuck with that for a long time. Our local politicans only care about the industry, and when I offically asked, I´ve been told and I quote "it´s fast enough". Yeah downloading your average game only takes 24 hours:mad:

The best I can get, that I don't have to call to find out pricing on, is 8mbps for $80/month.

I wouldn't want to stream games even if I could get 10gbps internet for free.

I never gave a time table for the world to reach a certain benchmark in data per second.

I stated that from a logical standpoint, the consumer will opt to pay a monthly subscription to play any game they desire without having to do anything more than downloading an app from Microsoft, Apple, or Google. This business model will win out.

Hardware that we love will eventually only be needed for corporate servers to stream data to users. ARM processors are already the consumer market share king. The trend will continue.

I just cannot fathom how little you are paying attention to how shitty much of the Internet infrastructure is. Hell, today for example I’m in a plus 90F heatwave, and I can’t keep cable internet in an up status for more than 10 minutes use at a time. It’s krapp. But when it is good, which is 60% of the time, it blows many of our U.S. members out of the water. Many of our Australian members can also confirm that streaming anything other than a movie is a no-go because speeds and bandwidth aren’t there either.

I get it. Things are great for you in TN. That’s but one tiny slice of the world.
