Gears 5 random Character Selection

The Coalition is currently developing the highly anticipated video game Gears 5. This game will be released for Xbox One and Windows users later this year. 

One gamer with the account name FatalStrykz asked the developers of Gears 5 to add a feature that allows random character selection in Multiplayer mode.

The user added that deciding which character to choose is always a confusing process. So this random character selection will save gamers from that confusion specifically in multiplayer gaming sessions.

Will Gears 5 support random character selection in multiplayer?

Many people came up with their own interesting suggestions regarding the random character selection in Gears 5.

One of the users shared a traditional approach and suggested to hover over each character and select one with closed eyes. Another made it even easier and suggested to try each character one by one.

However, many users think that this feature is an important one because they need to go back to the main menu to change characters. And this may sometimes take too much time.

As a matter of fact, this feature does not seem to be a feasible option in a multiplayer session. Players can jump in between the rounds to ask for the same character over and over again. Therefore, The Coalition may not agree to implement this feature. 

It remains to be seen if the final version of the game will indeed support random character selection or not.

The game is expected to land in September this year.
