Gabriel “Gabe” Diaz
Gabe Diaz was a decorated Lieutenant Colonel in the Pendulum Wars, and his tactical brilliance was key to the COG victory over the UIR at the Battle of Gatka Ridge. But victory came at a tremendous cost, and Gabe refused to put his skills to work for the COG any longer, busting himself down to Sergeant. When the COG calls Gabe – now a mechanic in the motor pool – back into action on the eve of the Hammer strikes against the Locust, he has no choice but to follow orders, and uncovers a dire new threat to the people of Sera.
Coming to Xbox consoles later this year, Gears Tactics is the fast-paced, turn-based strategy game set 12 years before the first Gears of War.

Against all odds and fighting for survival, outsmart your enemy in uniquely brutal, turn-based tactical combat. Experience the intensity of one of the most-acclaimed video game sagas in an exciting new way.
