After the first Act I must say it is growing on me if this continues it is the best Gears for me.

All these goddamn server issues are ruining what is an awesome campaign for me, starting to get really annoying, their servers are pretty crap...

Yeah, it puts me into a bind about where I stand with it--currently.  



I tried to play Gears 5 versus yesterday but not a chance.. matchmaking just keeps disconnecting. Can't play campaign yet either because I want to play it with my brother as always. Co-op versus AI worked fine but it's boring. New maps are cool but it takes time to adjust to new stuff. Rifles seem to be too powerful for my taste.

Hope they'll fix all the issues in the next 12 hours because I was planning to spend my night shift playing horde :P



Gears 5 campaign is great so far. A return to form. I'm mostly a campaign guy and I haven't been this satisfied since Gears 1-3.
Only problem: Xbox Live went down mid-game. I logged out to add another player and was never able to log back in.

Gears 5 is fun but holy shit it has issues. Don't know to what extent it's bugs vs server issues, but bottom line….shit don't work proper.



the issues started exactly when the game went live in USA XD. I have no issues in the morning in Europe, then afternoon comes Yanks wake up and bam logged out.






Gears 5 is an incredibly good looking game. The Coalition know how to make some of the best visuals we have seen. I haven't touched the multiplayer yet but hearing it has server issues so ill just focus on the campaign first.

It's so annoying, I think this is my favourite Gears campaign thus far but these damn server issues are really getting on both our nerves, I'm trying to finish it co-op with a friend and we've been disconnected from each other about 20 times over the course of the campaign, outright unable to join each other a few times, his spawning was delayed by about 30 seconds during a firefight moment, he spawned unable to swap weapons, I spawned unable to take cover, we had to give up yesterday because we couldn't get back in at all, oh and my collectable progress has been wiped too which is nice...and the game is saying I haven't completed Act III Chapter II or something even though I'm on Act IV Chapter II.

I've seen others have issues too with stuff like chapter progress being wiped or getting thrown back multiple checkpoints, Idk how much is related to servers but I'm pretty sure it's most of it, they weren't prepared at all, this is the first time I've ever used Gamepass to get a game early (It was only £2 to upgrade to Ultimate and get it 5 days early) and I was going to do it again for Halo Infinite but I don't think so anymore, if Gears can't handle it I can't imagine what Infinite will be like on launch.

Started Gears 5.

"Bootcamp" tutorial is far too long and tedious.
Next thing I wanted to try is online. Selected versus quickplay.... After 2 minutes of waiting I cancelled matchmaking and tried again. This time it worked. Had a really good round and then got kicked before the round was over.

Yeah..... I think I'm going to wait for an update.

Xbox Live was down quite a bit the last few days. It wasnt only Gears having issues.
