Yes. Gears 5 is on Game Pass for PC! Goes live tomorrow (or midnight tonight, depending on where you are). If you have Game Pass Ultimate, you can already play it.
It is being added to GamePass for PC. I have GamePass Ultimate and have been playing it on PC for a few days since Ultimate subscribers got access to the game 4 days prior to release. The campaign in 5 is better than 4 from what I've played so far.
Oh snap, looks like I'm getting Game Pass boys! :D
This is going to be very interesting to watch over the next couple of years - big games coming to Gamepass day one drives subscriptions, probably a whole lot. But, will those people continue to subscribe after they're finished with Gears, or will they lapse and re-up when Halo hits next year? That's really the big question mark and challenge for all subscription services that offer short terms options.
For my part, I took advangage of the $1 upgrade deal. My XBL sub ran out in July. So, I purchased 3 more years of XBL for about $160, then upgraded to Ultimate for $1. So, I'm at about $4.50 per month for Gamepass for the next three years. That made it a no-brainer. I did this in anticipation of games like Halo and Forza Horizon that I'll want to play going forward. The back catalog helps, of course. But, really, that wasn't a big factor for me. It was the future value proposition. At $4.50 month, the math is clear. At $10-$15, it would be a much harder call.
