When is Gear 5 taking place?
You have probably come to the same conclusion as well, but Gear 5 (despite the name change) will take place after Gears of War 4, as its direct sequel. In terms of dates, we know that 4th part took place on 42 A.E, and since Gears 5 release is a direct sequel, we can safely assume that the date doesn’t change (as the battle against the Swarm is immediate). Basically, the former great war was Locust battle, and the new saga with the young generation takes place 25 years after that brutal fight for humanity.
Who are the main characters in Gears of War 5?
The narrative revolves around one person, but in the grand scheme of things, there are several main characters. In Gears of War 4, we were introduced to the three new faces: JD Fenix, Kait Diaz and Del Walker; and they are the same soldiers we will meet in Gears 5. Release is set to focus on Kait and her past, but it also links the fates of JD, who’s the son of the legendary and fan-favourite Marcus Fenix and Del, JD’s best friend and fellow teammate. Marcus himself also makes an appearance in the game, offering insights and support.
Who are the antagonists in Gears 5?
You will not be getting a singular bi-bad evil guy in this game. Instead, the game throws Swarm at you. These particular and numerous enemies evolved from Locust Horde, the former enemy that was supposed to have been eradicated 25 years ago. Gears 5 release keeps Swarm’s survivability and power in the dark, but one thing is clear – they want to see humanity destroyed. Yet, with that being said, theirs is the figure of Queen of the Swarm that should not be disregarded, as her connection to the Swarm might very well spell doom to many.
