The overall series arc has followed a band of characters resisting the inexorable advance of the Locust Horde, subterranean reptilian hominids, who waited until human civilisation was exhausted and demoralised after a protracted and apparently unwinnable civil war to pounce, easily overwhelming the fatigued and depleted armies.

The game series timeline means that while most of the early games were from the same character’s point of view, later ones tend to jump around, exploring different viewpoints and offering changing perspectives on previously unemphasised story elements, filling in backstories for a rich narrative tapestry.

Your health bar will decline if you come under heavy fire for a time, and may deplete entirely. If subject to only minor damage, it will recover by itself as long as you stay safely undercover for a bit, but if you sustain heavy damage, you will need to be healed by a teammate. There are some hits – such as being subject to explosive attacks – that are instantly lethal to the player and from which you cannot be recovered or revived.

You can only carry four weapons in most of the Gears games, but these cover a wide range from grenades (of various types including, eg, smoke, incendiary etc), assault rifles, hand-guns and even weapons as diverse as bows and grenade launchers. Used weapons can be reloaded or swapped for those belonging to fallen foes.

You can play the game in a number of ways, from solo single-player to co-operative play with up to two or four players, depending on the game, and in multiplayer games of up to eight players. The more players in the game, the more fun you can have, unless you are partial to playing along the story campaign without any interference from others!

These are just some of the new features to look out for in the game, as you play through:

This game features the largest and most comprehensive playing terrain of the series, ranging from glaciers to deserts and everything in between – all beautifully realised and detailed enough that you might easily mistake it for photography of real places

You have a choice of ways to play. You can play solo, or go co-op with one friend, or you could try online multiplayer which allows up to eight of you to play cooperatively. Or you could try out the brand new three-player co-op mode, called Escape, in which you and two friends must place an explosive in an enemy stronghold and then get out again safely before it detonates

The game is rated AAA, which is the video game equivalent of a movie being styled as a blockbuster – meaning lots of action, a good budget having been used in the production, and play that is entertaining and player friendly

There are plenty of accessibility features to ensure all players enjoy a great playing experience, no matter their abilities

You might consider gamepass.
Especially given the super-cheap ways of acquiring it atm.
the price is falling fast for this game but on game pass for £1 or £2 a month
If you are just going to play the campaign just get gamepass. Why waste money on this?
Game Pass is great guys but many people like to own certain games.

Gears 5 features the 'best HDR implementation yet' says Digital Foundrywindowscentral.com/gea…dry
Gears 5 is a showcase for Unreal Engine 4 and arguably the best use of HDR ever in a game.

"John Linneman, a Staff Writer at Digital Foundry, gave an impressive breakdown of Gears 5, talking about what The Coalition has accomplished with pushing Unreal Engine 4 across multiple modes in Gears 5. You can check out Digital Foundry's full breakdown in the video below, though, do note that they show off all of the environments in the game, so you might want to wait if you're extremely wary of spoilers."

I'd suggest to play it on game pass now, then if you still want it in 6-12 months (or want to play DLC/MP), buy it then, when the price will have hit <=£10.

This approach with Kingdom Come Deliverance saved me £15 !

Thanks for the link. This is a very detailed appraisal of the graphics. There's more to the gameplay than I thought.

I haven't changed my mind about the graphics though, whilst it has the best HDR implementation, the graphics for me at least do not have that wow factor, whereby I look at the game and think yes these are next level graphics.

Graphics don't make a game but they also don't meet my expectation of a 2019 release.

Totally understand this is a money saving website but sometimes it is good to support certain games and developers. For example, I can't understand why people on here are holding out for Cuphead to be way under 10 quid before they finally buy StudioMDHR are only a small team but have created something really special and if we ever want a sequel to Cuphead someday, is it not best we support these developers by paying as much as we can for their games.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance also another great example which you mentioned, with this being the first game by Warhorse Studio. They have great potential but their survival and chances of them creating a second game basically come down to how well the first game sells.

I understand we can't support every developer and their game but the attitude from the likes of @powerbrick for voting every game cold just because it is on Game Pass is very sad to see. The new Battletoads and Ori games are going to be day one on Game Pass but I will be buying them full-price because I believe the developers deserve our support.

Oh the poor indie studios.....so they didn't take sacks of money from Microsoft (Ori, Cuphead)?

This is a consumer deals site

These games in this deal are Microsoft studios

My argument is let people buy a game to own it or support the developer even if it is on Game Pass. The Godfather being on streaming subscription should not prevent someone buying a copy if they want to own it and add it to their library.

Is that not the same as voting every DVD/Blu-ray deal cold just because it is available on the likes of Netflix or Prime Video

Why? This does not make sense. This is a deals site not a bleeding hearts site. I am a consumer and could not give a stuff about how the product was manufactured.

But then as a consumer of Game Pass who has no interest in owning their games surely this deal is not relevant to you Why vote cold or comment on a deal that is for someone that wants to own the game and they are looking for the best price to own this game. Not every deal has to be relevant to you just because it is on Game Pass.

Whether you are voting them cold only you will know but saying things like "Why waste money on this?" because of Game Pass is you making the deal relevant to yourself and trying to discredit the deal. Not everyone views the deal the same way you do.

Why not ignore these deals instead of always having to be the first comment going on about Game Pass Let the people who want to own the game comment and vote on it.

Another lie.
shockingly bad game, no EU servers for 17 days, ranks broken, devs dont listen. Its call of duty, its not a gears game.
Great price and dropping fast. I'm currently supporting subscription models with gamepass, uplay and origins premier but it's always great when a game drops to a biting price
Get Gamepass £2 for 2 months (with Spotify Premium) and play through this in it's entirety in that time, also get Microsoft Bing Rewards and to the daily offers and searches (max 10 minutes a day if you use the Microsoft Edge app and have one tab for mobile searches and one tab set for desktop searches) where by the time you finish the 2 months you should have enough points for an extra 3 months Gamepass. If you're so desperate for a physical copy to include in your 'collection' just wait until next year when the price will be less than £10 easily. Don't fall for this borderline scam disguised as a 'deal'.

Completed it on PC everything maxed out and your right the graphics aren't that great. As for the gameplay it's no different from any other GOW. Still given heat for the price but its medicore at best.
This game is sweet like honey.
fishmaster06/10/2019 00:45

I'm fairly certain this is a crap kids game.


The irony of calling an 18+ rated game a kids game
Great game, have beaten horde on elite will try insane soon.

Currently bugged out on the campaign on Act 4 (IICR) as I did a side mission first and won;t allow to you progress. Not sure if they have fixed it yet.

Nothing will be GOW 1 though
They gave in to the inclusive fad, and it back fired.
Well game is awesome. Crashes with gw502 error are not. Clean drivers installed, all windows updates are installed. Every one, two MP games crash !!!
