Gears 5 Online Technical Versus Test Happening Later This Month

by Kyle Hilliard on Jul 05, 2019 at 05:55 PM

Gears 5 is getting a pair of technical tests later this month that will let players try out a number of modes including Arcade, Escalation, and King of the Hill, as well as Bootcamp (a training mode) and Tour of Duty, where you can earn medals to unlock Tester Weapon Skins and a special tester banner.

The first test starts on July 19 and the second test starts on July 26. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate or Xbox Game Pass subscribers automatically have access to the test, but you can also get a code to participate by pre-ordering the game from the Xbox Store or by pre-ordering a physical version of the game from certain retailers.

You can find a whole lot more information here including details like when you can pre-load the test (July 17) and how big the download will be (about 1 GB).  Gears 5 releases on September 10. For more on the game, you can read some of our hands-on impressions here.
