The new Gears Of War spin-off, Gears Tactics came out yesterday, and already players are turning their soldiers into characters from other games. Tactics has you recruit various soldiers as you go on, you see, and while you can’t change the general look of their bodies or faces, there are still a bunch of features you can alter to adjust them to your liking.
So, here’s a few examples you could follow if you fancy having characters like Duke Nukem or Doom Guy in your squad.
Here he is, old Doom “Champ” Guy. It’s a very powerful look for him, the trunk-like appendages of Gears characters really suits the demon slayer’s “I’ll crush you” kinda vibe.
Next up we have Halo’s very own Avery Johnson. This one’s a pretty uncanny likeness, too.
Now, his glasses aren’t quite right and he’s missing his bandoliers, but you know what? Yeah, that sure is Duke Nukem.
I’m sure this is merely the beginning of many characters we’re going to see recreated in Gears Tactics. Seeing as fans have managed Avery Johnson, could we see a Master Chief? What favourite game characters do you reckon you’ll try and recreate, reader?
“It’s a spectacular thing to play through, and it’d be more than enough to merit the fifty quid price tag if it deleted itself on completion,” he wrote. “It’s the first game in ages that gave me the urge to start a second playthrough in the same session as my first completion, which says a lot.”
