The Coalition has announced that Gears 5 Ultimate Edition players will be compensated for the problematic early access launch, with five days of XP boost and 600 Scrap.
Over the weekend, Gears 5 was plagued with significant server issues. All multiplayer modes were afflicted with extended matchmaking times and continual disconnection, kicking players and affecting displays. It even caused problems with the single-player Campaign, so those who had waited so long for the highly-anticipated installment, well, waited longer than planned.
Colm played Gears 5, and decided that this cog has not had its day; it ‘embraces what’s come before and expands on it: bigger, longer, and Gearsier.’ Colm and Josh chatted about it and all the bells and whistles that makes the latest game so great.
