The 50x bigger map comes in handy when it's the biggest Gears of War game yet, given that it's now an open-world game with RPG elements this isn't the Gears game your Daddy knew.
Gears 5 will see The Act 3 being "fifty times bigger than a normal Gears level", but it will also feature "the biggest campaign The Coalition has ever built". More details are available here.
