Gears 5 just got announced, so I know it’s still waaay too early to speculate about the end of this trilogy, but everytime I think about this trilogy Gears 4 started, there’s always one thought in the back of my head.
It seems that the advertising slogan of Gears 5 is “War returns to Sera”. My question is - How is that war going to end in Gears 6?
I think it’s kinda obvious they can’t end it with another machine that sends an impuls through the whole planet and wipes out the Swarm. I mean, they can, but that would be extremely underwhelming and ridiculous.
How are they going to solve the Swarm problem? Remaining humans will barricade themselves in New Ephyra “Attack on Titan” style and just try to survive in a cage surrounded by the enemy? They will create a biological weapon that kills the Swarm creatures? Or maybe we’re going to see the end of mankind on Sera?
Ok, I think the last one would make the whole trilogy - if not the whole series - pointless, but… who knows? Whatever it is, it must be something you are a part of, like that quest for Azura in Gears 3.
So what do you think? I know it’s still super early to speculate about stuff like this, but I wonder if anyone else thought about this.
I don’t think they’ll going to end the story about the swarm in Gears 6, the story is no longer limited to a trilogy and now it’s more of a saga. This will give them some berthing room on where to take the story rather than rush it to end.
Not really, she was rearing to go until Adam begged her to hold off on her plans in exchange for finding an alternate solution to the Lambent problem.
What exactly brought Myrrah’s contempt for humanity is unclear but maybe explored given the direction the story is going now. Taking it at face value however, her reasoning is primarily philosophical: the surface dwellers have a knack of waging war and destruction while hypocritically spouting ideals for peace; how that concerns the Locust is that her people will face the same ire the humans show to their own kind. The humans were all too willing to annihilate each other, what chance does peaceful coexistence with the Locust have?
In her mind, none. And that’s a perfectly acceptable outcome as far as Myrrah is concerned. When faced with extinction, any alternative is better.
Something colossal would have to happen.
Nobody figured out that Adam Fenix would lead to end of war, even though humanity was on brink of extinction in Gears 3.
Maybe Baird could figure something out, since he’s like the new Adam Fenix.
She was right. Humanity is a destructive, violent species who know very little other than war and conflict.
The Locust did indeed have a right to Sera. As the Rise of RAAM explored further, the Locust were battling an internal war for survival against the Lambert whilst the Humans were fighting against each other out of greed and corruption.
