What’s on the Gears of War Timeline?


This list attempts to create a reading order (or in some cases viewing/playing order) for all major pieces of Gears of War media. This includes primarily all video games, novels, films, and comic books. This list does not attempt to split up any media so that they are read congruently, but rather focuses on an easy to follow reading/playing/watching list. In the event that two works cover the exact same time-frame the one published first is read first. Additionally the placement within the timeline is often based on where the work ends rather than where it begins. There may be a few exceptions which will be pointed out in individual reviews.
