Gears 5 Versus Multiplayer Tech Test Kicks off on July 17

At E3, we unveiled a brand new way to fight the Swarm in Gears 5: Escape. We wanted to show how we’re pushing the envelope by doing new things never seen in a Gears game before, and that throughout the summer, we’ll reveal more about Gears 5 ahead of its September 10 release. We said that we’d talk more about the Versus Multiplayer Technical Test in July, and today we’re happy to provide more details on how you can be among the first to play Gears 5 and help create the future of Versus multiplayer.

Multiplayer fans of all types can enjoy these weekend test sessions, as you’ll get to play Escalation (our updated competitive gametype) along with Arcade (a new and approachable multiplayer gametype) and a longtime fan favorite: King of the Hill. For players new to Gears or those that want to practice their skills and learn new mechanics we’ve added our new training mode – Bootcamp. The Tech Test also features a short Tour of Duty, which is a series of challenges for players to earn content – completing all of these challenges unlocks an exclusive Tech Test Banner. Players can also unlock three Versus Weapon Skins by completing some additional challenges. For a closer look at Escalation, be sure to check out the ELEAGUEInvitational next weekend (July 13-14) and stay tuned for additional details about Arcade next week.

Included with your Xbox Game Pass membership or as part of your Gears 5 pre-order (whether as a separate 5×5 code from a participating retailer or bundled in your digital pre-order), the Tech Test will be available to download starting July 17 with online play being active from July 19 (starting at 10 a.m. PDT) through July 21, and then active again on July 26 (at 10 a.m. PDT) through July 29.

As mentioned earlier, starting on July 17 at 10 p.m. PDT, you can search for “Gears 5” to pull up the Technical Test on your Xbox One console or Windows 10 PC. If you’re an Xbox Game Pass member, you will see the Tech Test available to download in your library – same as any of the 100+ great games in the catalog. Note that between the weekend test periods, the Tech Test itself will be available for download, but servers will be offline. We also wanted to remind you that online multiplayer will require Xbox Live Gold on console, and that because this Tech Test is to help test our servers, you might encounter some queueing as you start to play. We hope to make Gears 5 a great online experience for all players and Xbox Game Pass members on launch, and this Tech Test will help.

For players on Windows 10 PC, we have the below chart that outlines minimum and recommended specs for the Tech Test:

Thanks for your support and we look forward to seeing you online starting July 19 ahead of sharing more about Horde and Campaign in the months to come!

Installed Horizon 4 on my PC through GamePass and booted it up this morning. It's incredible to load it up and see all of my Xbone progress transferred over seamlessly. And it auto set to Ultra, that was nice, I didn't think my PC was that capable but apparently so. I gotta say though, there's too much shit to do in Horizon 4. I almost don't even want to bother because it seems like you never make a dent. I'd love a streamlined, traditional racer set in the Horizon universe.

Also check out Slay the Spire if you have GP on PC. It's great. And what the fuck is this Bleeding Edge stuff, I haven't gotten any invites :(

Due to how busy I'm with my growing business and my usual work at the company, I didn't play as much as I like. Also, most of my playing time this year went to NBA 2K19. 

Games I finished this year:

Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition

Valkyrie Chronicles 4

I guess thats it! 

I'm playing RE2, FFXII and Onimusha right now. Love all of them. Wished Onimusha was a proper remake though.

Some quality games in there. I was tempted to buy RDR2 when I saw it on sale for €29 since it will never join Game Pass, but I decided against it. Too many games to play already. It would take me dozens of hours to finish it and I'd rather try to finish some Game Pass games before they leave. Finished Dandara and got some achievements in Aftercharge. Then I'm going to play the episodes of Hitman that weren't given out for free and then I'm good.
