During a recent panel at PAX in Seattle over the weekend, it has been revealed that the upcoming Gears of War 5 will have a main campaign map that is a whopping 50 times bigger than any other map seen in the long-running series. This was revealed by studio chief at The Coalition, Rod Fergusson.
The campaign of Gears 5 in general has been developed to have larger maps to encourage the players to explore, while also having plenty of narrow and close-quarter sections that the series has been known for. Fergusson also revealed other details such as the players being able to partake in side-quests, choosing weapon loadouts and that the companion bot called Jack will also be able to cloak players, offering the option of a more stealthy approach. Jack will also be able to help you find collectibles, points of interest and will be upgradable.
