Gears 5 Hivebusters DLC
Anticipation is ramping up for Gears 5’s latest bit of DLC, Hivebusters, in preparation for its scheduled launch, tomorrow, Dec. 15, at approximately 9 am EST.
The Hivebusters DLC is The Coalition’s first go at post-launch, story-related content. Check out the trailer here:
Hivebusters is a 3 hour, story-driven campaign in which players hop back into the roles of Keegan, Lahni, and Mac, known for their debut in Gears 5’s Escape mode.
Players will experience deeper backstory for these characters, how they ended up in their roles as Scorpio Squad within Gears 5, and maybe a few surprises along the way – including the first in-game appearance of Cole’s daughter, Hannah, outside of the franchise’s books and comics.
The events of the campaign will be taking place at a new location called the Galangi Islands. Alongside that, The Coalition will be introducing some new mechanics with the expansion as well.
Players will be able to both use and upgrade Ultimate Abilities, similarly to how abilities function in both Horde and Escape mode.
The campaign will also include 15 new achievements to unlock totaling 90 Gamerscore.
DLC Launches December 15
Players’ can look forward to the Hivebusters campaign launching tomorrow for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Windows 10, Steam for $19.99, and it will also be available for free through Xbox Game Pass Ultimate at 9 am EST tomorrow morning, Dec. 15.
