Gears 5 Includes an Extended Hamilton Reference
Gears of War 5 contains a number of references to the popular real-life musical, Hamilton.
The Gears 5 musical equivalent is called “Embry” and also tells the story of a prominent, foundational government figure. Instead of Alexander Hamilton, the Gears 5 musical is about Nassar Embry, member of the Allfathers and founder of The Coalition of Ordered Governments (COG), Sera’s governing body.
The references can be found peppered throughout Act I: Chapter 4 – The Tide Turns, including posters sporting a stance which will be instantly familiar to Hamilton fans, as well as appraisals from critics, such as “above average, recommended viewing,” but the reference doesn’t stop with posters.
