      As someone still using the Xbox One (launch day edition), I am amazed how well Gears 5 scales on the older machine. Gears 5 feels as much a jump in graphics as the original Gears 1. I did not think this level of detail, fluidity and AA would have been possible on Xbox One. I'll hopefully get a Scarlett when it launches but Microsoft have shown their latest games still run well on older hardware - nobody gets left behind.

    • Gears 5 Is the First Game to Dethrone Fortnite As the Most-Played Game on Xbox Live in Over a Year

      An epic launch.



      Fortnite has been on top of the world for a long, long time now. It’s claim to being the most popular game in the world as things stand right now remains undisputed, and since the summer of 2018, it has constantly been on top of the weekly charts for Xbox Live’s most played games. However, as spotted by a user on ResetEra, that run has come to an end.

      Currently, Gears 5 is the most played game on Xbox Live, and has become the first game in over a year to dethrone Fortnite. To be more specific, this is Gears 5’s Ultimate Edition we’re talking about here, which has been available since September 5th. It’s a very impressive feat for a number of reasons. For starters, dethroning Fortnite in and of itself is an impressive accomplishment. Then there’s the fact that Gears 5 seems to have its player count split across two versions on a technicality.

      The achievement becomes that much more impressive when you think of the major releases in the last few months that have been unable to dethrone Fortnite. The likes of Red Dead Redemption 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Forza Horizon 4, Battlefield 5, and Apex Legends – to name just a few – all were unable to knock Fortnite off the perch. Gears 5 being available via Game Pass is sure to have helped- but then again, Apex Legends is a free-to-play title, and it couldn’t do what Gears 5 has done. This is almost certainly going to be a temporary thing, but it’s still quite impressive.

      Gears 5 is out now for Xbox One and PC. Make sure to check out our review through here to see just how much we liked it (we liked it quite a bit). Also read our in-depth technical analysis to see how we arrived at the conclusion that this is one of the best looking games ever made.

        It really amazes me how they still manage to sell a LOT of copies of their games with GamePass being such a brilliant proposition.

        Yup, and the most impressive thing is it's the ultimate edition that is number one in a lot of places. 😎

        Selling 60 dollar copies is great. However getting millions of additional subscriptions to gamepass, many of which will last for months or stay permanently is what Microsoft wanted. Instead of 60 dollars in one shot they double it in a year for the same game. Plus many will keep the subscription for the foreseeable future.

        If Microsoft continue to populate Game Pass with games like this, I will certainly be keeping the Game Pass subscription going.

        @ MR. X

        Yep, for many of us the Game Pass model makes a lot more sense now. Playing games like I use to is just not an option for me any longer and now I have access to many games I would not otherwise try, while keeping up to date on all the MS exclusives I prefer to play!
