Gears 5 is launching tomorrow to the world, but pre-orders and people with Game Pass Ultimate have been playing the game since last Friday. I have GPU, so I installed the game and got a few hours to play.
The game is absolutely gorgeous and runs like a dream on the Xbox One X. Resolution at 4K, framerate at 60 fps, such a pretty game and runs so well. It plays well too. All Gears games always feels satisfying to play, and this one is no exception. Gameplay is fluid and fun, and the gun battles are ferocious and fast.
The story so far is also much better than Gears 4. Already I am much more emotionally involved with the characters, and the story is well written and acted.
I have just entered the open world part of the game, which is about 3 hours into the story. But so far I am loving the game. Definitely one of the better Gears of War games I’ve played.
Has anyone else played the game?
