Gears Tactics is an upcoming top-down tactical game along the lines of XCOM. It was announced as a Windows 10 exclusive, but there were rumors floating around that it was coming to Xbox, too. Razer accidentally added the game to the list of titles that support Xbox One mouse and keyboard input on its website, and since then, the rumors have been out of control.
Just like every Microsoft Exclusive, Gears Tactics will be included with Xbox Game Pass. Xbox Game Pass is a monthly subscription service which gives you access to over 200 games for $10 a month on Xbox One. However, if you’re an Xbox Live Gold subscriber, you can bundle Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass for PC, and Xbox Live Gold together for $15 a month.
