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!

Trailer Xbox One PC

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.

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.

    AndreasZ94 Apparently some people were also pissed because some content from the original wasnt in the remake. I never played the original so it didn't bother me at all. (5 Hours ago)

  • AndreasZ94

    AndreasZ94 @MikeManiac61: But yeah the extreme backlash over the length is frustrating to see. That's why you have devs sometimes feeling obligated to add filler in order to hit an "accepted* length. (5 Hours ago)

  • AndreasZ94

    AndreasZ94 @MikeManiac61: By today's standard it is short and if someone can't afford to by a 6-8 hour game day1 thats understandable. I thought the length was good for the amount of variety in it. (5 Hours ago)

  • AndreasZ94

    AndreasZ94 The pacing is great, it really makes you want to keep playing until it's finished. I didn't feel that any part dragged on longer than it should which is kinda rare these days. (5 Hours ago)

  • MikeManiac61

    MikeManiac61 @AndreasZ94: I looked at the Steam reviews and it's a riot over there. Some people are complaining about the length even though RE games were never long to begin with. (5 Hours ago)

  • AndreasZ94

    AndreasZ94 Just finished RE3, really enjoyed it. Playing on hardcore difficulty was definitely the right call for me. Took a bit over 8 hours. Unlike most reviews i honestly enjoyed it more than RE2. (5 Hours ago)
