Re: Gears 5 (9/10/2019: XB1, PC)

Now that the lancer reload and chainsaw button is set to RB I am having issues trying to get my reload's done for every quick press as it would get no reponse. Is anyone else experiencing this?

Also not sure if its a glitch but when setting the loadout and placing gnasher on left and lancer on right it does not always work. 90% of the time it goes back to the default of lancer left and gnasher right.

That one with an AI teammate was infuriating. Couple shoddy targeting with one-shots...good times. Other than that, I am absolutely in love with the rest of the game (playing on intermediate; I'm an old, no time to get decent).

This game is pretty to look at but not much fun to play. I'm about half way through Act 3 and ready for it to end. The open world element isn't helping either. I was a little surprised by the high scores, but that may have to do more with multiplayer. This game is in desperate need of a reboot like God of War received.

My favorite feature about this game are Halo: Reach Spartans in horde mode. I always wanted a Halo-ish 3rd person shooter. Closest thing to that were Star Wars: Battlefront games or 2010's Vanquish.

“We’re evolving your Gears 5 multiplayer experience with four new characters: the COG Gear, the DeeBee, the Warden and General RAAM, the ruthless Locust military leader,” Microsoft’s Dana Sissons announced. “Every character added to Gears 5 will feature powerful multiplayer abilities to master. These new Heroes and Villains are available today and can be earned through gameplay or purchased in the in-game store.”

Additionally, Microsoft is updating Gears 5 with two new characters from the movie Terminator Dark Fate: Grace, featuring the voice of actress Mackenzie Davis, and the new Terminator model Rev-9. Microsoft previously added two other Terminator characters, T-800 Endoskeleton and Sarah O’Conner, the latter of which is voiced by actress Linda Hamilton.

The COG Gear, the DeeBee, the Warden, and RAAM characters can earned through gameplay or by purchasing them for 500 Iron (in-game currency) each. The Terminator Dark Fate characters are as set for $20.

That looked awesome. But are they only multiplayer? You can’t play in single right? Either way, awesome it’s free for Game Pass members. This GP paid for itself in less than 3 games for like 3 years.

It's a 20 wave Horde event, where COG Heroes go head to head with Swarm enemies wearing Juvie Pumpkin Heads, Frankenstein's Imago, and Sires. If players complete 60 waves of Mad Man's Monsters, they'll get 13 Jack-O-Lantern weapon skins, such as the Jack-O-Lantern Retro Lancer shown above.

Pumpkin Ball is still running alongside Mad Man's Monsters. Pumpkin Ball is a zombie-Pumpkin fused mashup, in which players who are down but not out (DBNO) will self-revive at once, unless players aim for their head or manage to blow them apart. There's also big Juvie Pumpkin Heads, to make sure no players forget which season it is. Completing 13 Pumpkin Ball matches gets players the Frankenstein Imago character skin.

This Krampus doesn’t care if you’ve been naughty or nice – he’s coming for any COG he can get! Earn the Krampus Scion* by getting 200 Kills in Free For All, trackable in your Tour of Duty Medals.

*The Krampus Scion is actually based on the Warden, but to ensure players can access the skin instantly without the need to unlock a Character first, we’ve assigned this Character Skin under the Scion Character.




It wouldn’t be Gearsmas without some Ugly Sweaters, so why let your weapons miss out on some festive cheer?

Earn the full 18 weapons from the Ugly Gearsmas Weapon Skin set by completing 100 Waves of Jingle Juvies during the Gearsmas event.



On top of the sweet new earnable rewards, the Gearsmas gifts keep on rolling down the chimney with four additional goodies just for logging in.
  • Gearsmas Jack Character Skin
  • Gearsmas Bloodspray
  • Gearsmas Mark
  • Gearsmas Banner
Simply hop onto Gears 5 from the launch of Gearsmas until January 2nd at 10am PT to claim your Gearsmas presents.

Re: Gears 5 (9/10/2019: XB1, PC)

Talking to Digital Foundary, Coalition tech director Mike Raynor said an "optimised" version of Gears 5 will be "available at launch on Xbox Series X."

He adds "The title will support Smart Delivery, so if you already have the title in whatever form you'll be able to get it on Series X for free."

The Coalition currently has a working next-gen version of Gears 5 that it produced in two weeks. Working with Epic Games, the studio has upped all of the quality presets of the console version to be equivalent to the PC's 'ultra' settings. The team has also added improved contact shadows and software-based ray tracing, as well as improving the frame rate of the cutscenes (up to 60fps from the Xbox One's 30fps). This has all been achieved in a fortnight, and reportedly runs akin to a PC with an expensive Nvidia RTX 2080 graphics card, despite being currently optimised.

https://www.ign.com/articles/gears-5...grade-for-free
The great news about all this is that the improved version of Gears 5 will be available free thanks to Smart Delivery. This new system from Microsoft means any Smart Delivery supported game in your library from current-gen will be automatically available in its next-gen version for free when playing on an Xbox Series X. It's effectively 'forwards compatibility', for lack of a better term.
