The upcoming collaboration between Gears of War developer Epic Games and the Funko POP! characters finally has a release date: August 22.
So as soon as this week we’ll finally get a chance to get our grubby little mitts on this intriguing mobile battler.
Gears POP! Allows You to Create a Powerful Team of COG Soldiers and Locust
In terms of gameplay, Gears POP! seems to borrow heavily from the likes of Clash Royale. You’ll put together a team of heroes and villains from the Gears franchise and battle other players in real-time.
For the first time ever, COG soldiers will battle alongside the Locust as everyone puts aside the war for a minute. You can mix and match your favourite characters, units, and troops to create an effective team.
Then there are your Ultimate abilities, which can seriously turn the tide of a losing battle. These include the Emergence Hole, which unleashes a ton of Wretches on the battlefield, and we’d be incredibly surprised if the Hammer of Dawn didn’t make an appearance.
If you’re interested, you can pre-register for Gears POP! right now on Google Play to grab it as soon as it’s available this Thursday, August 22.
