Welcome to What’s Up! Your one-stop location for everything in the world of Gears.  Let’s get into it!

  • Title Update…update
  • Gears Anniversary Bumble Bundle
  • Xbox Game Pass Ultimate perks are here!

Title Update…update

This Tuesday we rolled out a title update with some much-needed bug fixes, changes to the Ranked, some new content and more. Unfortunately, the update didn’t go as smoothly as we would’ve liked.

The good news is you got new characters early (see below) and the team was able to address most of the hiccups. Unfortunately, the announced PvE changes didn’t get deployed as intended due to last-minute localization error. We will provide an update on timing as soon as we know.

Gears 5 Anniversary Bumble Bundle

For those of you that missed it, the contents of our Gears 5 Anniversary celebration made an early debut this week so we moved up their release to today. All items are in the store now!

For those of you asking, the contents of the pack (we love V-Day Sam too!) will eventually be available individually in the store but it won’t be for a while.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate perks are here!
