Gears 5 released over a year ago and while the developers at The Coalition have previously discussed the upgrades the game is getting on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, there’s been no indication of new story-based content. That changes today, as The Coalition revealed to IGN that Gears 5 is getting story DLC in December titled Hivebusters.
Hivebusters refers to Team Scorpio in Escape Mode, which is composed of Lahni, Mac and Keegan, three characters that are available in Escape and Multiplayer. The story DLC will be around 3 to 4 hours long, with more details coming in early December. Zoe Curnoe, Gears 5 principal lead producer, explained that the studio chose to work on this DLC after hearing fan requests.
We’ll be sure to share more about this new DLC as more details are revealed. In addition to Gears 5, Gears Tactics is hitting Xbox consoles on November 10, so there’s plenty of Gears goodness for fans to dive into this holiday.
