Every time we see something about the Xbox Series X, we
start to wonder if it’s actually going to be on par with or even better than a high-end
PC. Well, the video that you see above gives us our first look at how Gears 5
looks on Xbox Series X vs. Xbox One X, and the difference is night and day.
According to The Coalition, this demonstration is the result of just about two
weeks of work, so it’s not even a full representation of what the game will
look like when running at full Series X Spec.
In just two weeks, developers at The Coalition managed to
make the game look impressively better (improved videos) and the cutscenes run
steady at 60 frames per second. Add in the increased draw distance for foliage
(so grass and other things in your surroundings don’t suddenly pop into view) and
the additional reflection of more...
First, let’s talk about Microsofts Smart Delivery’s big names: Cyberpunk 2077, Geras 5, and Halo Infinite. This program will allow players to buy the games on Xbox One and receive them for free on Xbox Series X after they upgrade. The news was confirmed by Samuel Bateman. Microsft's Marketing Lead confirmed via a twitter post. another post, this time by Phil Spencer, the Xbox boss explaining the process of Smart Delivery. Cyberpunk 2077 was the first to announce this capability.
It looks like Microsoft it’s doing it’s best to keep the console family connected. This will also come as a bonus for players that will be able to buy the game once and enjoy it on different consoles. I don’t know about you, but the idea of having a single account with multiple games and being able to use it on various devices sounds...
According to Phil Spencer, via Twitter, Gears 5 is set to get some “enhancements.” Of course, he didn’t go into detail of what this actually meant, but he did say that it “Looks better than Gears has ever looked.” He continued in a second tweet saying the game featured “faster paced and deep turn-based gameplay.” Apparently, this new-and-improved version of Gears 5 was showcased right at The Coalition’s studio, as shown in the twitter post below.

The real question now is whether or not this “enhanced
version” of Gears 5 will be limited to the Xbox Series X – as in you’ll have to
buy a new copy of the game when the next-gen console launches – or if it’s also
That's right; you can now get a free "Batista" skin, inspired by none other than the Wrestler Dave Bautista. And, to make the deal even sweeter, the skin features over 700 voice lines. Rod Fergusson mentioned that the fantasy of Batista as Marcus was the beginning of this idea, later on adding voice performance and the classic signature.
You can get the skin for free, just by going to the customize section(multiplayer) and clicking it. The skin will be free until October 26th for any Xbox One or PC player. A wonderful gift for its large community, knowing that in the first week it reached over 3 million users and the numbers keep raising.
Only a few days left until it's release on September 9th - that is unless you are an "Xbox Game Pass Ultimate" member, in which case you can play the game starting September 6. Anyway, there are lots of guns, drama, explosions, and bloody scenes. Although, we're still confused as to why the "terminator" is in it - apparently, time travel is too complicated for us.
We've seen many familiar characters, as Clayton Carmine and Augustus "Cole Train" cole. We're happy to see that no bloody creature managed to take them from our screens, at least at this moment. We know that you found that something, we know that you need to kill it, but please, can we get at least a hint of what it is and how many bullets does it take to put it down?
We see from the first...
Finally, we got some information about the Gears 5's campaign. The game itself motivates you to explore all the new surroundings, even if it's the main quest or just a side quest. This "evolution" impresses the player, especially those of you who like the "stealthy ninja style" kills along the way. There are also brand new abilities for those who love the adrenaline rush when you let all your enemies know you mean business.
Explore mountains covered entirely by snow, or endless deserts. The campaign starts with a village being attacked by the Swarm. Your character "Kait" and Del try their best to defend it. All presented in a cinematic mission. After the Swarm army fails to destroy the village, you're gonna be introduced to your first vehicle. Do not expect a monster truck or an armored tank. Instead, you get a Skiff...
The launch of Gears 5 is just weeks away, and now we're finally getting a look at the multiplayer maps that will be available at launch. As expected, they look dark, creepy, and very detailed. It's clear that Gears 5 is shaping up to be one hell of a game and we can't wait to play it. Until it launches, however, here's your first look at the Gears 5 multiplayer maps and a little bit about each one of them.
Asylum is a classic-style Gears map, with strong fronts
across all three lanes and imposing architecture set during a dark night.
A New COG Transit Line has been installed on the outskirts
of the asylum. These trains stop for no one, so if you get in their way, the
Train will always be the one to come out on top. Always.
The middle offers a tight lane...
Even if Windows 10 is one of the most used operating systems on almost all PCs, some new games are still playable on the Windows 7 operation system. The best example will be the new Gears 5 that's set to launch in early September 2019. Initial Gears 5 system requirements indicated that Windows 10 will be a "must-have" for a better experience of the game, but steam has shown us otherwise.
According to Steam, Windows 7 64-bit will cover the requirements of Gears 5. All those facts being clarified by Ryan Cleven, the design director. This inlcudes cloud saves, achievements, controllers support, and Steam trading cards. A cross-platform multiplayer will be added later on, but that will require your Xbox profile for compatibility, even if you buy the game on steam and play on PC.
