[CONCEPT] Gears 5 Charater Pack: Crash Bandicoot?

Hey there, ever since I saw the character pack for Terminator Dark Fate, I was like “Would The Coalition(TC) do a Crash Bandicoot character pack for Gears 5?” If so, would Activision be on board with it? Who knows, The Coalition is capable is just about anything.

if you never even heard of Crash Bandicoot, you can look it up. Also, I’m, referring to the HD re-release.

Question: Would you favor a Crash Bandicoot character pack or would you oppose it?

If you favor it what abilities would the characters have? I’ve thought some up myself for Horde Mode?

Good guys

What do you think of my idea?
Also, what are some of your character pack concepts?
PS. I’d love to see Crash with a Lancer.

You’ve clearly got too much spare time on you hands. The duration of your abilities are far too generous for a start, the Tc would never allow that. Plus the thought of the Rng grind of horde cards with 11 new characters , thats a no from me.
All this content for the reasonable price of “£60” with 3 days boost trown in as an incentive.
Don’t give them any more great ideas for f##k’s sake…


Ok, how about I scale back the duration? Cut the duration in half and I’m sure the owners of Crash Bandicoot won’t mind since they should branch out to other genres?

I can even go over some achievements with the new charaters.

Achievement Achievement type To Unlock Gamerscore Value
Chainsaw Spinner Normal As Crash in Arcade Mode, perform a Spin Attack using the Lancer’s chainsaw bayonet 50GS
Glory Hog Normal As N. Tropy in Arcade Mode, activate Time Slow and achieve MVP 25GS
Know Your Character: N. Tropy Rare As N. Tropy in Horde Mode - use your time manipulation powers and achieve 50 kills in Time Freeze in a single Horde match 100GS
Know your Character: Pinstripe Potoroo Rare As Pinstripe Potoroo in Horde Mode become made and keep Mob Sight going for two and a half minutes and achieve 50 enemies kills 300GS

Also even if TC allowed that what would the reaction be from players?

Gotta admit, when I clicked on this thread I thought it was going to be a joke thread.

I love Crash Bandicoot and that, but it really doesn’t seem to fit in to the Gears universe.

You’ve clearly worked hard to come up with everything, so well done for that but I very highly doubt it would ever happen.

Only a gears of war newbie would think it was ok to add this kind of crap. There’s nothing wrong with crash bandicoot but putting it in gears of war would be dumb as f###.

Let’s add mario and I’d love to play as a T. rex or sonic the hedgehog…gtf outta here.

I’d like to think he was taking the p1$$…

That’s $h1t load of effort for him to be taking the p1$$ imo. But, then again you get some crazy people.

Yeah I would like to think it’s a joke as well but the amount of detail and the length of the post suggests otherwise…

It’s either an embarrassing piece of crap idea lol or a really funny joke. If it is a joke I hold my hands up for taking it seriously and it is really funny especially with the detailed description etc


Well, it’s something that TC and Activision could work on together, also I was talking about the HD re-release

I’m not even interacting in this conversation after this reply. It has to be a joke. Maybe they could add crash characters to fifa and the last of us as well…it would look cool lmao

No joke, I’m serious.


I commend you for your work of actually having to think of this stuff and attempt to flesh it out with working abilities and such.

Like I wouldnt go into detail for a pack or character not in GOW Universe I would only detail a GOW universe character.

Uh, thanks for the commendation.

What are your thoghts of my route of fleshing out the charaters?
