Gears POP! is an adorable spin-off, mobile version of the harsh and dusty series Gears of War. The game caught the audience of E3 off guard by making a debut in the event about 5 months ago. Gears POP! will pretty soon be released in some countries and territories around the globe. In accordance to that, The Coalition did reveal its first ever gameplay footage.

In the extended developer’s diary, Rod Fergusson (studio head) and Tyler Bielman (game director) shared that the game is working on a soft launch. A soft launch means that the developers would publish the game only in some limited regions, like a beta release. By the time the game come out, people would be discussing and gossiping about it already, so The Coalition made the decision to unveil some gameplay footage for the public. Therefore, we have ourselves a much closer look into a single-mode match that lasts about 3 minutes. Looking at the footage, we can clearly see that it has a surprisingly similar look to Supercell’s Clash Royale.

Gears POP! Exclusive First Look Gameplay
According to Bielman’s explanation, their aim in giving Gears a new design was to carry over a few pillars from Gears universe: cover, in the name of "explosive moments," as well as the popular characters of Gears. A selection of heroes as well as villains from Gears is available for you to choose from for a 3v3 match in the arena setting.
