[Update]: Gears Tactics has now landed onto PC and Xbox One, and while it's good, it's pretty darn expensive right now.

If you're a fan of XCOM, April is looking to be a pretty darn good month. First the action-packed spin-off XCOM: Chimera Squad will be landing on April 23rd, and then on April 28th, Gears Tactics will be joining the fray on PC and Xbox One with its very own take on turn-based action.

As you might expect given its inspiration, Gears Tactics will be all about leading teams of highly customizable soldiers against overwhelming numbers of enemies. You'll need to upgrade their skills and outfit them with better equipment as they advance through the ranks, help them fight against massive bosses that defy usual strategies, and naturally, get slightly depressed when your favorites inevitably die to a stray bullet.

You can get a good idea of what all of this looks like in action, as well as what Gears Tactics' story is all about, through the recently posted launch trailer. Have a peek:
