Gears POP! is a mobile spin-off of the critically acclaimed Gears of War franchise, and plays similar to that of Clash Royale. The game was first announced during the Xbox conference at E3 2018. Since then, we have gotten clips of game-play and adorable animated shorts featuring characters from the game; one of which debuted at Gamescom this week. You can watch the, “Boomer Buddy” animated short above.
At the end of the short, it is revealed that the game will be available to play on Thursday, August 22nd on Android, iOS, and Windows 10. If you were tuned in to the Inside Xbox live-stream on Mixer during any point of the stream, and were signed in to your Microsoft account, you will receive an exclusive in-game item when it launches. Will you be trying out Gears POP! when it launches later this week? Let me know in the comments!
