Without further ado, then, Gears Pop will launch on Thursday, August 22. That’s certainly a bolt out of the blue as it’s been a while since we had heard anything of note about the game. The wait to play it is nearly over, though, so you might want to make room on your smartphone in order to install it without any issues on launch day.

Gears Pop is a collaboration between Funko Pop and Microsoft-owned studio The Coalition. It takes the Gears formula that you’ve come to know and love and makes it more arcade-y and kid-friendly than its predecessors. Gears Pop will be a free-to-play game, and as is tradition with these kind of smartphone titles, will offer in-app purchases if you want to spend real cash. Bear this in mind before you download it.

You can pre-register to play the game on the Google Play and App stores now. If you do, you’ll be alerted as to when you can download and install it on release day.
