Gears Tactics up close screenshot of the heroes

If you've finished up with XCOM: Chimera Squad and you're looking for a bit more turn-based action to mess around with, you might be interested to hear that Gears Tactics has recently landed onto PC and Xbox One. Much like it's inspiration, Gears Tactics is all about sending scores of highly customizable soldiers against overwhelming numbers of enemies, watching them snatch victory from the jaws of defeat time and time again, and then eventually getting them unceremoniously exploded through a series of stupid yet probably avoidable circumstances.

You can get a bit of an idea of what this brand of turn-based strategy looks like in gameplay terms, as well as what sort of hero units you'll be able to utilize, through the recently posted launch trailer. Have a gander:

However, while Gears Tactics takes a lot of inspiration from the XCOM series, it unfortunately doesn't have the same sort of replayability and depth. Still, Gears Tactics is not a bad game by any stretch. Quite the opposite really - it's actually quite fun! But, the reason I'm even mentioning this, is because Gears Tactics currently has a truly ridiculous €70 price tag. So unless you're beyond excited to dive in, I'd recommend keeping a close eye on Gears Tactics, but only really grabbing it once it goes on a bit of a sale.

Until then, you can learn more about Gears Tactics by hopping over to either the official website or Steam. Enjoy!
