Gears 5 for PC and Xbox One is the sequel to Gears of War 4 and is a third person shooter game in which the player must help the character, Kait Diaz to uncover the origins of the Locust Horde and the whereabouts (or fate) of her family. The focus in this game shifts from former protagonist JD to Kait, and the depth of narrative has driven the name being tweaked to drop the ‘of War’ from this title to demonstrate this shift.
The overall series arc has followed a band of characters resisting the inexorable advance of the Locust Horde, subterranean reptilian hominids, who waited until human civilisation was exhausted and demoralised after a protracted and apparently unwinnable civil war to pounce, easily overwhelming the fatigued and depleted armies.
The game series timeline means that while most of the early games were from the same character’s point of view, later ones tend to jump around, exploring different viewpoints and offering changing perspectives on previously unemphasised story elements, filling in backstories for a rich narrative tapestry.
