After it was released in September, Gears 5 has continued to keep players interested by adding more content. Received enthusiastically by the players, this is the second title of the series that has been developed by The Coalition, and the first one to be called simply Gears, although it is part of the Gears of War series. It also is the first game from Xbox Games studio to be fully accessible to people with disabilities, an initiative that deserves to be commended.

But let’s move on, what interests us today is, of course, the imminent release of Operation 2, which will arrive on December 11th. The first one was launched in October, and it added four new characters to the game among other things.

This new Operation, called Operation 2: Free for All, announces the arrival of a Free for All mode as the name suggests. It is defined as the “greatest versus mode” in the history of the series. It will challenge 14 players in a merciless fight, in which the winner will be the one who gets to 30 kills first. Free for All will be launched as a playlist and it will be converted in a Ranked mode in the month of January. Free for All also comes with three dedicated maps: Pit, Core, and Nethercutt.

A new arcade mode, Arcade Blitz will also make its appearance, and it’s a fast-paced version of “king of the hill”. The 2v2 Gnashers mode will also be included in the update. It features two new maps: Boxes and Foundation Mid, in which you will have to stick together with your teammate to dominate the opposing duo.

In addition to this, four new characters, including two heroes, Lizzie Carmine and Damon Baird, as well as two villains, Jermad and the Drone Locust, will join those already present in Gears 5. On the other hand, Mac, Keegan, and Lanhi will be playable in Horde mode, and Marcus in Escape mode.
