I know they said there was a typical sad campaign coming right before launch, but I’d love to see them make Billie Eilish Bad Guy Video in Gears form.

I think it could be amazing.

70€ for the standard edition in Sweden? I don't mind variable pricing but it seems a bit random as no other games cost that much. Maybe just a regional pricing hickup.

I just subbed to PC gamepass, 3 months for 5 euros is too good compared to 70 euros on steam. And I get to try out some other games (Blair Witch, AoE remasters, maybe Outer Worlds)

I have Gamepass ultimate and I try to download the ultimate version of the game but I get the regular edition box art and none of the preorder bonuses when I download it.

Yeah the cover doesn’t change no matter what the edition is

What do you mean? Why isnt it the ultimate box art and why dont I see the preorder stuff downloaded?
Because the Ultimate Edition includes the base game, you install.
The additional dlc will be added, but won't change the installation.
It's normal on Xbox platform.

Just popping in to say a couple of positive things:

1. Gamepass is an incredible deal, i'm stoked to play through the library.
2. Currently ripping through Gears 4 campaign with a bud and we're having a blast.
3. Gears 5 looks great, it feels good to care about it again. Didn't care for 3 much, 2 and 1 are masterpieces.
4. The xbox pc launcher app aint too shabby. I feel like Microsoft isn't doing so hot as far as exclusive games, but they are providing insane value atm and are winning me over.

Xbox has partnered together with WWE to create a special countdown to Batista’s availability in the game, including behind-the-scenes with Gears 5 and Batista on WWE’s UpUpDownDown gaming channel. This all leads up to WWE Network’s “Clash of Champions” event on Sunday, September 15, available through a 30-day free subscription on the Xbox app (new subscribers only).
To unlock Batista, simply play any version of Gears 5 (including with your Xbox Game Pass membership) beginning September 15. The promotion ends October 28.

yeah I did the same but 4 is just...insane. It's almost mind blowing level difficult.
I did it on insane, only one part really drove me nuts, the part in the pits with all those little imp things (can't remember their names)

The difficulty above insane however, no fucking chance.
