There is a lot more information on these characters’ abilities on the Gears 5 website.
Earning and unlocking the new characters
You can either purchase the new characters, or earn them with the new Totem system. This means you’ll be able to have the same set of characters without spending any real life money.
According to The Coalition it will take around 10 hours to earn a character. You can unlock the new characters by completing challenges. Each character has a different challenge you’ll need to complete.
