Rod Fergusson, Studio Head of The Coalition, the studio behind the development of Gear of War 5, sat down with Inside Xbox to detail the new Escape co-op mode that will be featured in the game.

In Escape, teams of three players will be tasked with getting out of a hive after planting a venom bomb to destroy it. So unlike other Gears of War modes, this one is more about pressing the action and getting out of dodge, than the typical Gears formula of taking cover and methodically blasting your enemies to piles of goo.

The experience can even be played locally through 3-player split screen, so it is very unique for the Gears of War franchise. Rod also drops some surprise esports news for Gears of War, so head on up above to check out the reveal.
