Of course, the Gears games are a package of big guns and bigger monsters, but Gears 5 surpassed many of our Gears fans wishes and delivered a beautiful Gears game. Gears 5 mainly focuses on the story of Kait Diaz and going through her quests to learn her connection with the Locust. Gears 5 offers an amazing single-player experience but also packs a ton of multiplayer content for you to enjoy with your friends. The multiplayer mods include pick-up-and-play Arcade mode and the Horde mode.
Developed by Respawn Entertainment, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a game that has taken inspiration from many popular AAA games.

Capcom made a return of the critically acclaimed series, Devil May Cry with their latest installment, Devil May Cry 5.
