Gears 5 Operation 6 adds three characters, a new map, and more

By Sean Carey,
The Coalition has shared a few details about the next Operation coming to Gears 5. Operation 6 brings with it three new characters, a new map, and a slight rework in terms of length and content drops.

The Coalition says it's been listening to feedback from the Gears community and has reorganised Operations in a way to provide content more regularly. There will be two content drops per Operation, one at the start and another mid-op. Each drop will contain at least one new map and a couple of characters. The overall length of an Operation has also been reduced down from 16 weeks to 11 weeks.

In Operation 6, three new characters will be added to the Gears 5 roster, including Colonel Victor Hoffman, Queen Reyna, and the Locust Zealot. A new map called Speyer is also on the way. The Coalition says its "opulent interiors and quaint plazas are suited to longer-range engagements," and to control the sanctuary, you'll need to win close-quarters fights.

The Coalition says it will be sharing more on other aspects of Operation 6 shortly.
