The press release detailed “new Ultimate abilities” such as “JD’s air strike or Kait’s cloak”. Horde mode will also include “building defenses, collecting power, leveling up your skills and working as a team.” There’s also a new Power Taps mechanic which “encourages players to move their bases for more power and rewards.”

Players will also be able to play as Jack, a robot from previous Gears of War games. “Jack doesn’t need cover and can buff nearby players or hack enemies, which lends an added dimension to building out the best team,” the press release explained.

As for the Halo: Reach character pack, it features Emile and Kat as playable characters in Horde mode and Versus. It also includes cosmetic items such as “a Noble Team Jack Skin, Noble Team Banner, Noble Team Blood Spray, Noble Team Mark and the Noble Team Weapon Set.”
