The Coalition continues to add new content to Gears 5 that keeps the game fresh and satisfies the playerbase’s taste for nostalgia. Operation 6 will be hitting those same notes.
First, the team is making some core changes to Operations in general. The first is that they are going to run for 11 weeks going forward instead of 16. This will allow The Coalition to deliver new content more frequently. Additionally, each Operation will include two content drops going forward which include two new characters and one new map each.
As for Operation 6 specifically, here are the details of the first drop.
Colonel Victor Hoffman
A soldier to the core, Colonel Victor Hoffman was instrumental in leading the COG to victory against the UIR and Locust. To meet the Swarm threat, the retired commander founded Scorpio Squad as a return to his favored approach: to strike the enemy where they live.
Transformed after death, Queen Reyna is the prime conduit through which the Swarm hive-mind courses. Once an Outsider leader and mother of Kait Diaz, Reyna’s reawakening now poses a threat of existential proportions to the humans of Sera.
The Locust Zealot is the result of Ukkon’s experiments with Imulsion and Kantus physiology. These religious fanatics are unique in their ferocity and unmatched in their devotion to eradicating humanity from the planet.
Evacuated long ago, this district is a picture of the pre-Locust-war life. Its opulent interiors and quaint plazas are suited to longer-range engagements. Controlling the sanctuary requires winning close-quarters fights while teams must coordinate to dominate the sprawling academy.
