Gears 5 is almost here and will feature a multiplayer horde mode where you can access and play as Jack the robot. The addition of Jack in Gears 5 horde mode was revealed at Gamescom 2019. In an interview Multiplayer Design Director Ryan Cleven has explained why there was a need of new character and why they preferred Jack over anyone else.
Ryan Cleven went on explaining that how Gears of War franchise over the past years and series of games have remained a challenging franchise. Moreover, the team wanted to bring in new face in recent Gears 5.
The development team wanted to have a support character and when they looked over and realized that Jack was a part of series since the first game, they could not find a better pick.
He was really a natural fit for support character that both great to play for experienced players and new players, and is already inside the Gears of War universe
Furthermore, Ryan Cleven was also asked how new players will feel about playing with Jack in Horde mode as there are no duplicate characters to pick in this mode. Ryan Cleven replied that, ”We expect people to naturally pick a main character and an alternate. So, for instance, someone who is really good at playing JACK may use JD as an alternate character, since he can stay back and drop air strikes on enemies from a distance”.
