Gears of War 5: How many episodes?
Gears of War 5 is the latest installment in the popular Gears of War series, developed by The Coalition and published by Microsoft Studios for Xbox One and Microsoft Windows. Fans of the franchise have been eagerly awaiting its release, especially since its predecessor, Gears of War 4, ended on a cliffhanger.
So just how many episodes of Gears of War 5 can we expect?
Episode Length and Number Expectations
The Gears of War 5 campaign will be made up of multiple episodes. Each episode is expected to have between 8-10 chapters, including a prologue and epilogue. That means we can expect each episode to last about four to six hours.
If we assume that each episode of Gears of War 5 is an average of five hours long, then we can expect at least six episodes in total. Six episodes would give us approximately 30 hours of content – a nice, satisfying amount for a full-length campaign.
Cutscenes and Chapters
As with the previous games in the series, there will be a mix of both in-game and cinematic cutscenes throughout the Gears of War 5 story. We can expect each episode to have around two cutscenes in total, which will be interspersed between the chapters.
The cutscenes will add an extra layer of drama to the story and will be used to set up the game’s key moments. The chapters, meanwhile, will be where the action takes place as the player engages in gunfights and various other combat scenarios.
So all in all, we can expect a total of six episodes from Gears of War 5, with each episode lasting around five hours. This means we can expect a total of around 30 hours of storyline content, with a mix of both in-game and cinematic cutscenes throughout.
Gears of War fans can look forward to a satisfying amount of content and an exciting new story when the game launches later this year.
