The developers from The Coalition have released a new CGI launch trailer to celebrate the release of third-person shooter Gears 5. The game is already available to the owners of the Ultimate Edition and subscribers of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and the full release is coming on September 9th.
The piece is driven by the Fleetwood Mac classic “The Chain”, covered by Evanesence lead vocalist, Amy Lee. This darker, warped version of the classic song twists the original’s meaning to embody the dark threat of Kait’s bloodline calling out to her.
