Gears 5 official screenshot showing off the Horde mode

Gears 5 is set to arrive this September 10th, bringing with it a whole bunch of different content to mess around with. And since no Gears of War game would be truly complete without a Horde mode, I'm pleased to say that during the recent Gamescom stream Microsoft has announced just that!

So if you're curious about what Gears 5's Horde mode will offer, as well as what sort of characters you'll be able to play as, you'll find the most recent trailer down below. Have a gander, it's a pretty explosive one:

Besides digging in your heels and hoping the enemies collapse before you do, Gears 5's Horde mode will require you to frequently move around the battlefield in order to collect power orbs. These drop from slain enemies and are neccesary in order to strengthen your characters, and as such you'll definitely want to wonder straight into enemy fire in order to collect them. Thankfully, power is shared with the whole team, so you won't all have to race against each other in order to get those sweet, sweet upgrades!

You can learn a little bit more about this whole power system, as well as the Horde mode in general, over at the official website. Oh, and prepare yourself for a couple of surprise characters!
