Are you ready to chainsaw some more Locust? With the newly announced "Gears 5," Microsoft's betting that the answer is a resounding yes.

The next entry in the gruff and grisly "Gears of War" third-person shooter series was announced by Microsoft on Sunday during the company's annual E3 media briefing. A new character is at the forefront, introduced during a short trailer shown in Los Angeles - her name is Kait, who previously debuted as a supporting "Gears" characters.

Like previous games in the series, "Gears 5" features third-person shooting with a focus on movement and cover.
