Gears Tactics Wages War On Your Xbox Hard Drive With Beefy File Size

Gears Tactics is coming to an Xbox near you next month, but that Xbox will have to have a decent chunk of hard drive space freed up first, it seems.

The good news is that the Xbox version will take up less storage space than its PC version,  though, which was released in April this year. The PC version requires 45 GB in total.

Reports show that the Xbox version, on the other hand, will demand a good 34 GB of storage space. That’s still pretty hefty. But at least it’s not as bad as the file size of the latest main entry in the series – Gears 5 – which needs at least 50.04 GB free on the Xbox One, or even worse, its predecessor Gears of War 4 which topped charts for its ridiculous demands of between 100 and 120 GB.

Gears Tactics is apparently going to be optimized for the new Xbox Series X, which itself will be launching on the very same day as Gears Tactics – November 10. That means 4K resolution, HDR support, 60fps, and Smart Delivery.

The game is also an Xbox Play Anywhere title, which means you only have to buy it once on either console or Windows 10 PC in order to be able to play it on either platform.

Gears Tactics is a turn-based strategy game and spin-off of the prolific Gears of War series. More specifically, it’s set 12 years before the events of the very first Gears of War game, which was originally released for the Xbox 360 back in 2006. In Gears Tactics, you play as Sergeant Gabriel Diaz, whose mission it is to lead his military unit in a war against the savage Locust army which is invading the cities of planet Sera, and to hunt down its gnarly leader, Ukkon.

Gears Tactics will be landing on the Xbox One, as well as the next-gen consoles Series X and Series S on November 10, 2020, which is conveniently the very same day that Microsoft will be launching its new consoles.
