Today, Gears 5 players can enjoy a new Operation, called Hollow Storm, which makes quite some changes to the multiplayer portion of the game.
This Operation brings seven new characters to Gears 5. And it separates class and characters in PvE modes. In Horde and Escape players will now be able to pair any character with any class. This also means characters previously not available to Horde or Escape mode are now available.
The new characters are:
- Dizzy Wallin
- Tai Kaliso
- Anya Stroud
- Lambent Drone
- Lambent Grenadier
- Lambent Theron Guard
Dizzy, Tai, Anya and Skorge can be picked up with the Operation 5 Bundle.
