Gears 5 with Xbox Game Pass

Gears 5 will be available to subscribers of Xbox Game Pass (includes console games and PC games) when the game launches on September 10, 2019. If you have an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, you’ll be able to install the Gears 5 Ultimate Edition during the early access period starting on September 6, 2019.

Pre-installing the game

You can also pre-install Gears 5 with an active Xbox Game Pass subscription to make sure that you have the game ready to play the minute it launches. To do this:

Xbox Game Pass (console games and PC games)

  1. From your Xbox One console’s home screen, or from the Xbox app on your Windows 10 device, select the Game Pass hub and search for Gears 5.
  2. Select the option to install. This will add a placeholder to your game library, which will be updated shortly before the game launches.
  3. If you have an active Xbox Game Pass subscription when the game launches, you’ll be able to launch and play the game.

Note You’ll need to be running Windows version 1903 or later to pre-order Gears 5 on your Windows 10 device. Go to Settings > System > About to make sure the version shows as 1903 or later.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate

  1. Shortly before early access begins on September 6, 2019, Gears 5 Ultimate Edition will be available in the Game Pass hub.
  2. Select the option to install. This will add a placeholder to your game library, which will be updated shortly before the game launches.
  3. If you have an active Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription when the game launches, you’ll be able to launch and play the game’s Ultimate Edition.

Pre-order bonus content

All players who pre-order Gears 5 will receive the following pre-order bonus items:

  • Terminator Dark Fate Character Pack
  • 7 Days of Boost
  • Vector Lancer Skin

In addition, if you have an active Xbox Game Pass subscription and use it to play Gears 5 before September 16, 2019, you’ll also receive the pre-order bonus items listed above.

Details of how these pre-order items will be sent to you will be confirmed closer to launch.

If you no longer have an active Xbox Game Pass subscription but want to pre-order the game ahead of launch and get the pre-order bonus items, visit the game’s product page.
