GSY Review Xbox Series X

After spending a lot of time using our Xbox Series X, we are now able to show you some games. Here is Forza Horizon 4, Gears 5 and Gears Tactics in 4K and 4K HDR, and The Touryst also in 4K.

Our many recent attempts at covering less high profile games having remained vain apparently, we're back with what is now a AAA oldie, hoping that maybe it will draw your attention a bit more so you feel like leaving a comment. Because we don't have an Xbox Series X, the only way we can show you what the next gen patch of Gears 5 will look like is to use the PC version all maxed out with a pinch of HDR to make it shine even more. The Coalition's title may be uneven in terms of graphics (the second open area disappointed us greatly) and a bit dated when it comes to certain aspects of its gameplay (why the A button is still used for running is beyond us), there is no denying that it is a fiendishly efficient third person shooter. We're very curious to see what the developers will do with the franchise on the next Xbox whose hardware is more than competent to blow our minds.

The advantage of being confined and of seeing highly anticipated titles delayed (The Last of Us Part II to name but one) is that it's going to give us plenty of time to go back to all those games we couldn't dive into back when they were released, or that we've never had time to complete. Gears 5 is one of them, and since we couldn't show you the PC version in HDR in September, we thought we'd make it up to you this weekend. Enjoy!

Available starting today with the Game Pass Ultimate and on September 10 for everyone else, Gears 5 celebrates its launch with this Elastic-produced trailer that showcases the threat coming from Sera and Kait herself.

The embargo for Gears has been lifted for a few hours and if we're not on time, it's simply because we were only sent our copy a bit earlier today. Needless to say we can't tell you what the campaign is worth, having only played the first 15 minutes of the game. It is what we're going to show you now, on PC to begin with, but more coverage will come as soon as possible. Remember that those who have preordered the Ultimate edition or have subscribed to Ultimate Gamepass will be able to play as soon as tomorrow (9 p.m CEST) whereas the others will have to wait until September 10.
Update: One video added.

In addition to our PC videos, here is Gears 5 captured on Xbox One X in 4K HDR.
Reminder: you need to watch our HDR videos on a compatible screen by downloading them or on our Youtube channel.

Even though Driftwood and Davton went to sleep a bit after a super busy day at the Gamescom, the videos keep coming! So how about some Horde gameplay from Gears 5 to begin with?

While the Gears 5 Tech Test was available last weekend, we took the opportunity to capture the Xbox One X version with more than 10 minutes in 4K and HDR.

Microsoft unveiled the release date of Gears 5 as well as Escape, a new game mode where three players plant a bomb in the hive and try to get out of it alive.
Update: Added the CG trailer in very high quality

Gears of War 5 was on of the centerpiece of Microsoft's press conference, and as expected the game looks quite good. Here it is in 4K high quality captured straight from MS's feed at the conference.
