The Hivebusters DLC has been officially revealed for Gears 5, releasing December 15! It will also be included with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. It can be purchased separately for $19.99 and is included in the Gears 5: Game of the Year Edition, also available December 15. 16 new achievements will be added with a total of 210 gamerscore.
In the new expansion, play as Lahni, Keegan and Mac – the heroes introduced in Gears 5’s Escape mode – in their first mission as part of the secretive Hivebuster program. Thrown together and dubbed “Scorpio Squad,” their suicide mission to destroy a Swarm hive may hold the key to saving Sera and their own redemption.
Xbox just announced their one and only bit of gaming news 2 days before the TGAs, which means theyll have literally to show at the TGAs while sony blows everyone away with MGS remake, Silent Hill and Twisted Metal Black remake. DOOMED, We’re all DOOOOMED
Personally I’m quite excited for this. It’s a bit on the short side (3 hours), but it seems to be action-packed and exciting. The choice to include it with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is a very good one. I haven’t checked Gears 5 yet on the Series X so I will be doing that once this DLC releases in a week. Do wonder what Xbox has planned for the Game Awards now.
Yeah, it was. Hope that returns in Gears 6. This makes me wonder if their will be lava areas in the DLC that if you shoot the ground, enemies can fall in like the ice. Oh man. Will definitely be on the look out for that when I eventually play the Hivebusters DLC.
