Hopefully, given that OP4 is yet another season delayed as both OP2 &3 were, and given the current state of the Gears community, I sincerely hope OP4 takes this game to a new level.
I expect it to be the same old stuff, a long tour of duty cramped with mostly skins and filler content, with the best content placed at the end of the tour. Probably 2 or 3 new characters each (locust/cog), and maybe 2 new maps that will most likely be remasters from older games.
I expect the worst bc TC has really underachieved with this game this far.
What we really want?
Gears 3 bearded Dom. We have waited long enough. Include the classic Dom skin in the TOD, as well as a store variant that could be commando Dom. 30k xp/500iron to unlock.
Paduk campaign skin. The fact that this was left out at launch along with half the other campaign skins is awful.
Gabe diaz. And maybe one of the other cog heros apart of that story. Great win win to entice players to try Gears Tactics.
That’s 3 or 4 new cog with various skins in-between.
Locust Grenadier. With many skins like Flamer, Elite, and savage variants to potentially include.
Uukon…although I think another great idea for a bundle in the future would be Locust leaders pack including Sraak, Karn, Skorge, Uukon etc.
We NEED these bad ■■■ gears tactics characters on gears 5. The desciple and zealot are insane.
Maps- Gridlock, River, Mansion…and if they have any new ones ready to go, we badly new maps.
All in all if TC really pushes the boundaries here, gives us the new ranked system, weapon tuning, and makes a few important tweaks .
As well as introduces 3-4 new cog, 3-4 new locust/swarm and a lot of good skins and weapon camos in the TOD. With as many new maps as possible…Gears5 will be finally refreshed and headed in a much better direction.
It sucks we will hsve to continue to suffer through boredom and the long lack of content in this game for another 2 -3 weeks, through 4th of july with a horrible stale and broken game.
And like I initially said I doubt TC goes above and beyond and gives us a lot of new characters, maps and content. Given their poor track record I expect the bare minimum.
