How Many Chapters are in Gears 5?

Gears of War fans have plenty of reason to be excited as Gears 5 is here. Starring Kait Diaz, Del Walker, JD Fenix and, of course, Marcus Fenix, the latest entry in the franchise continues the story established in Gears of War 4. Set 25-years or so after Gears of War 3, it was revealed that the Locust didn’t die and had instead evolved into the Swarm.

In Gears 5, Kait is seeking answers to her lineage, especially her connection to the Locust. Humanity is facing all-out war with the Swarm and maybe figuring out who Kait is, holds the key to stopping the Swarm once and for all.

Like previous Gears games, the story takes place over a number of chapter and acts. This guide will let you know how many Acts and Chapters there are in Gears 5 as well as their names.

So, be warned, there are light spoilers in the names of the chapters.
