Gears POP! is now available on iOS, Android, and PC and merges together Gears of War and Funko Pop! in a multiplayer PvP battle arena-style game, and we have nearly ten minutes of gameplay for you to see the game in action for yourself.Gears POP! is a free-to-play game that features over 30 characters from throughout the Gears of War universe with a Funko Pop! design, including Marcus Fenix, Augustus “Cole Train” Cole, General Raam, Kait Diaz, and many more.

New characters are unlocked from Gear Packs and allow players to mix and match their favorite COG and Locust units into one epic team.

Gears POP! players can also utilize Ultimate abilities like the Emergence Hole that “floods the battlefield with Wretches.”

The goal of each PvP battle is to destroy two enemy turrets that will then allow a player to attack the other’s avatar that can be further customized outside of battle.

Players summon different characters that have various amounts of energy required to be put out in the battlefield. There are certain characters who can take cover behind obstructions that, when two in a row are captured, will allow players to summon characters further up in the arena.
