The first game from the incredibly popular Gears of War franchise has landed on iOS. Gears Pop! is very different to what fans of the series are used to, but it looks like a ton of fun nonetheless.

It’s also free-to-play!

Gears Pop! is the first product of Microsoft’s partnership with Mediatonic and Funko — the makers of adorable Pop! figures. It’s an action-packed multiplayer game set in the Gears universe.

The game features more than 30 Gears Pop! characters to collect, and you’ll use them to form a squad that you’ll lead into real-time PvP battles against opponents online.

Every win will earn you a Gear Pack, which will contain sweet rewards and bounties that you can use to make your squad even stronger.

Other game modes let you take on AI opponents to improve your battling skills. And when you get really good, you can advance through the arenas and into the big leagues.

Here, you’ll get the chance to challenge the best players in the world and fight for better rewards.

Microsoft is planning to add the ability to team up with friends later on. You’ll be able to join forces to fight hordes and epic bosses.

Gears Pop! is available to download now on iOS, more than two months after it went up for preorder in the App Store. It is compatible with both iPhone and iPad.
