A lot of people seemed to be over Gears of War, but I still really enjoyed Gears of War 4 and looking forward to this.

It may not mean anything, but it's interesting to me that they're calling it Gears 5 rather then Gears of War 5. Also, I mentioned this in the E3 thread but I assume they saw that fans didn't give a shit about JD so they're focusing on Kait, which is pretty cool to me.

agreed Kait being the main, plus I can't wait to see how they got to where the story picks up at. WTF! JD's arm, scar and changing of Face/head hair

EARNING CONTENT IN GEARS 5

Earning content in Gears is something we know many of you care deeply about. You’ve asked and we’ve listened.

In Gears 5, our goal is to create a player-first experience when it comes to in-game content, and it starts with this:
  • No Season Pass
  • No Gear Packs
  • DLC Maps are free for matchmaking and Private Play
  • Exclusive earnable content in the all-new Tour of Duty system
  • All store purchases are direct, no RNG so you always know what you will get
We have many exciting new features for Gears 5 coming up that we’ll talk about in detail soon

4K/60 on the Xbox One X is really exciting. Iím going to try to squeeze in the time for a series playthrough before release. Iíve never actually played anything but the first and fourth games, but 4 was one of those very rare titles where I wasnít ready for it to end when it did.

It doesnít have a traditional health meter. If you see the red gear in the middle of the screen, youíre hurting. The redder it gets, the closer you are to death. When the gear fades away, youíre completely good to go.

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

Yeah, I saw that. Was this known to be a difficult game? I was playing 1 on normal and just getting ass kicked in just the first act. I was a little disoriented with controls and movement. I am a mostly FPS and 3rd person throws me off sometimes and don’t love as much as FPS. But this just plays kinda different as a 3rd person action shooter. Can’t put finger on it. I think that’s why I gave up on 1 and think 2 bc of the difficulty...

The game is all about cover based shooting. You have to stay behind cover as much as possible and move from cover to cover or you won't last long.

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

Will this be cross platform playable...in other words if I play on the PC (XBL account)...can I hook up with XB1 players?

Heads-up : Free weapon skins by unlocking at least one Achievement in every Gears game. Easy to do, and retroactive so if you ever unlocked one, you are covered for that game.

I don’t get the big thing about skins. It just changes look right? Not functionality. I don’t even look at my weapon color. I just shoot...

Well...back then these skins were actually pretty cool and there was some wild looking ones....funny how old this is yet look at today with Fortnight, Apex and other games touting endless skins yet for real $$$$

So...do they want players to actually go back and do something in all these Gears games?...I still have the first four but for the 360....

It's retroactive so if you popped a single achievement in each you don't have to do anything. If you didn't, you can play all of them with Game Pass. All have an Achievement pop within the first 15-20 minutes of game play I think. If anyone with Game Pass wanted to get those skins it wouldn't be difficult even if they had never played a Gears game before, it would however take a lot of downloading. The skins unlock in Gears 4 as well, BTW.

It's Gears 1 remastered for the X1. You will need to play that for a few minutes to pop an Achievement in it.
