    Kait is the main character.
    Kait's face has changed, not sure why. Probably not a necessary change unless they wanted to make her look more like her mother, and slightly more alien. Her eyes are hmm, giving me locust vibes.

    JD's face has changed, probably for the better, he actually looks like Marcus' son now.

    engine upgrades

    and X1X enhancements

    I really miss the character designs of old. The half-hippie-half-future-soldier looking Liberal Art Students of War really look more like cosplayers.

    Graphically, this game looks insane. Material rendering and character models are such a big step up from Gears 4.

    I am happy it's a big step up because GOW4 was not that good looking, just ok.

    The biggest feature I would love to see them state being in Gears 5:

    "No RNG card collection for Horde skills".

    But the pessimist in me says Gears5 will be even worse than 4.

    From the description it sounds like Gears of War is going to expand in a similar manner God of War expanded from the previous games, which could be a good thing.
    From the sounds of it its going to be what the XBOX was missing all these years

    Really looking forward to this. Been playing the Division 2 and all it's doing is making me think of how much better Gears of War is. Division 2 would be better without loot and just a lot of difficulty levels to get the experience you want.

    I still need to play Gears 4, Gears is one of my favorite series. It's just that it's a 100GB big on PC and that's my whole data cap for a month :(

    I think it's supposed to be a V, but when you put that outline around it...I can't unsee the heart now. :p

    That's a pretty non-obvious V IMO. :p

    Here:

    You get the idea, I think. Blood dripping from the symbol. Symbol is forefront and center instead of some seemingly random mountain (it's a bloody screen capture that even includes Kait & Del )that only lore-nuts would maybe get (I sure don't).

    Heck, they could have made a V out of two chainsaw lancers, whose imagery would be appealing to the bro-gun-dudes.

    Something like this, but shift the placement to emphasize the V.

    New Horde-like mode called Escape. It's a 3 player mode, so it's absolutely perfect for our group of 5. :roll:

    finally a gameplay video, which is something that the MS conference sorely lacked.

    Must be a popular haircut.

    ..."haircut".

    :p

    ------------

    Random curiosity - the Escape stuff looks very... segmented by rooms, a bit like how Doom snap mode levels are built. I wonder if they've built something similar so they can put out "new" content without ballooning install sizes.

    Initial thought was a procedural thing just to make it automagically, but I suppose if there's a leaderboard involved, they'd want something standardized. hm.
