It seems like Gears of War 4 came out five years ago thanks to the longer than usual wait we’ve had to sit through for Gears of War 5, but luckily, we at least got a little gameplay morsel today for the next Gears game courtesy of the official Gears of War Twitter account.
It’s not even what one would call a gameplay video, in fact, it’s a GIF that has been uploaded to Twitter only, but who really cares about format, because it shows off a new melee weapon being brandished by the game’s protagonist, Kait Diaz. It appears as if Kait is in some form of Locust structure as she cleaves her way through hordes of little creeps with what Coalition Games is calling an axe.
I’m not sure it’s an axe — it looks more like a massive two handed club with spikes coming out than an axe — but who’s really keeping score? One thing is clear, and that’s the fact that this melee weapon is devastatingly brutal, as in it’s a giblet making machine.
