MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD
- is what I'd like to say but Cinematic Director Greg Mitchell has it in full posted during the Gears 5 Art Blast.

There had been many many MANY iterations of this sequence because nothing had been built for it yet so I had the freedom to do whatever I wanted. So for the first bit of the boards, I took a tube mesh, slapped on a vertex shader that made it look like moving entrails and took a fly through camera through the whole thing and screenshot what I needed.
I had absolutely no idea if this was to be a playable section at all so I did some ideations of the dreamscape Kait was wandering through.
I had to cut these boards a little short just for this post. I'm glad they sped it up and changed up some things for brevity.
