Gears 5 Catch-All

I can't believe that nobody hasn't posted a thread of this yet.

ABOUT GEARS 5
From one of gaming’s most acclaimed sagas, Gears is bigger than ever, with five thrilling modes and the deepest campaign yet. With all-out war descending, Kait Diaz breaks away to uncover her connection to the enemy and discovers the true danger to Sera – herself.

Coming September 10th, 2019 to Xbox One and Windows and available via Games Pass day one.

Personally I am most interested in the Escape and Horde modes.

Super excited! It's 3 player co-op campaign I hear.

Horde mode looks fantastic. Looking forward to it.

Got my shiny new headset ready to go..

That reminds me, I never did test out my little bud microphone I got.

I haven't done Gears n Beers in many years. But I may be up for doing it again.

I watched the escape mode video and don't get it. Can someone explain what the mode is? Drop a bomb and escape a room or couple rooms?

Yea basically.

This is on fridays??

Seems like multiplayer will work between XBox One and PC? Alright, I'm in. Thanks, PC Game Pass!

I've already started practicing, to prepare myself. The "Beers" part, not the "Gears".

I'm all over this via XB1 Game Pass. Bring it.

I hope so because I'll be playing on PC.

I know this is not directly related but has anyone picked up Gears Pop, the mobile game? I know it is a bit of a copy of Clash Royale but I am really enjoying it I think more so than that game, probably because it is in the Gears ecosystem.

I am not a Gears head so what is the feeling about player population when it comes to Horde mode? Pretty easy to find games if its a popular mode?

Gears 5 Review "Buy, Wait for Sale, Rent, Never Touch?"

Just finished Gears4 campaign (finally) and loved it. So pumped for this release! I hope there are people playing it, a little worried it is going to die off really fast with Borderlands 3 coming out shortly after. I get the sense there is a lot more interest in that title but since GOW5 is free on GamePass not much downside for people to dip their toe!

Should be a good night of the week game.

The... The Gears and Beers thread is dead as of 2015. Seeing that left a cold, dead chill in me that I won't soon erase. Please won't someone get drunk with me and cut me in half some time soon?

I'm sure there will be people Gearsing and Beersing. Inigo is still trying to get games going; send messages out on XBL on Friday and see what happens.

It is out on Friday, right?

If you have the deal of game pass ultimate, you can play as soon as tomorrow thursday sep/5 at 9pm EST if you are in the USA, anywhere else, its 9pm local time.
And its out on stores on sep-10.
cya on Friday.

So what's the trick if you're playing on PC and playing with Xbox folks? I didn't pay attention during beta to see if there were communication options.

You can preload today if you're part of the game pass ultimate. I think everyone starts on the 6th.

FYI Gears & Beers thread is alive and kicking again!
