The Gears series is one of XBOX’s biggest exclusive original titles.

The huge new title, 4 years in the making, Gears 5 launched tonight at Midnight (9pm PST) on XBOX.

You can download it now for free if you have game pass ultimate, or add game pass for $2 for the first 2 months, or download to own the copy for $79.99.

On September 10th the standard edition will become playable, and can be purchased for $59.99.

Remember Microsoft owns this so they don’t over monetize it, meaning the “battle pass” that is in Gears 5 is completely free for everyone.
