River and Jacinto potentially coming to Gears 5 as per the livestream


Well, great. How many months until it comes around then?:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

You corrected your error on the live spelling so I won’t make a joke about it.

But I guess this’ll make the people happy who’ve been unhappy this wasn’t in Gears 4.

The poster seemingly took down his tweet. So as of now not confirmed.

I updated the thread accordingly. Sorry for the hype River has been my requested map FOREVER.


I could have sworn Octus said that river doesnt exist

Red and I were also watching the stream, and I saw nothing about River being confirmed.


This happens every dev stream btw, I watch it then see comments on this forum, or on twitter that was “confirmed” and this plays in my mind.


I guess we’ll see then. I personally haven’t had much interest in following the dev stream of this week as I suspected it would mainly be Versus focused due to the PvE news not being out yet and it obviously featuring the new mode.

That said, I technically have no issue with maps that haven’t yet been remade at all as I have very limited MP experiences with Gears 2-3 and none with 1, so it’s basically like trying a new map for me. If it hasn’t yet been in Gears 4, that is.

You can’t blame me haha. I follow Razored Edge and usually he doesn’t make these mistakes or assumptions.

I blame him, absolutely not your fault.

Agreed, he is normally fantastic.

They basically reiterated the point about focus shifting from escape tiles to multiplayer maps, and then mentioned that River and Jacinto were popular requests. So maybe a hint.

No, but Gridlock does.

No more Gridlock please…so many other great maps that deserve some love.




If the final vote is a majority NO on the thread by midnight my time tonight, I will join your side and post my “No More Gridlock,” picture on every thread where necessary.

Good god I can’t stand him and Shadowz. Shadowz spent half the stream getting chat to spam “free Ben and Anthony”. Shut the ■■■■ up. So immature and annoying af. Clickbaiting trash


I hate the fact that TCA encourages shilling and blind loyalty instead of criticism by giving out free content early and whatnot.


Exactly. I don’t get how they haven’t been removed. And obviously I don’t know them as people in case their fans want to @ me with trash talk but when it comes to their gears related content they’re worse than E3 for cringe material.


Not to mention most of what SH4DOWZ’s content (at least what I see) os just him reading TC’s tweets and “What’s Up” or This Week in Gears to his camera Verbatim and saying “Really Cool,” video done.

I don’t think there should by any development-related commentary in these dev streams. Just have Octus and another person playing together and talking about random topics like their pets or good junk food. I think they are way too open and friendly while talking to the community.
