Beyond just the console and controller, all of the packaging is also branded for Gears 5. The accessory boxes carry the same graphics scheme as the outside of the box and the console itself to make a cohesive package.
The main design piece that stands out on the console is the Crimson Omen on the front of the Xbox which appears to be entombed in snow and ice. It’s a unique design that has a captivating 3D appearance when you move console back and forth. Be sure to check out the video for a closer look at the Crimson Omen. On the back of the Xbox is a gold Locus logo with snow splattered over top of it. All of the colors work together beautifully in a cohesive package that was designed by Gears co-creator Rod Fergusson and the Xbox team.
With its similar white and grey color scheme, the controller looks like it’s built out of some riveted metal pieces and features a Phoenix Omen under the Xbox Home button. Blue triggers and thumbstick accents give the controller a fresh feel. On the back is a dark grey color that matches the back of the console with a Locust logo on the battery cover.
