Gears 5 : Details on ELeague Summer Series and First Glimpse at Versus

Gears 5 is rapidly approaching and as one of our most anticipated titles of the year, you can expect a lot of coverage from us in the coming months. Fortunately, you won’t have to wait long as the first, full look at Gears 5 Versus arrives tomorrow.

This Friday, you’ll get your first ever look at Gears 5 Versus as part of ELEAGUE Gears Summer Series Episode 4!


This episode centers around young pro player star Powerz who, along with fellow pro Kenny, got  hands on with Gears 5’s Escalation mode at our studio here in Vancouver, Canada. During the episode, you’ll get a sneak peek at some Versus gameplay and learn a whole lot more about Gears 5 Escalation!


Tune in this Friday at 11pm ET / 8pm PT on TBS (East Coast) and Twitch.TV/GearsofWar. The episode will also re-run on Twitch when it airs for West Coast viewers on TBS at 2am PT / 11pm PT.

While tomorrow is the first glimpse, next weekend the ELeague fully kicks off.

Next weekend, on July 13th and 14th, we’ll be at Turner Studios in Atlanta for the ELEAGUE Gears Summer Series Tournament where the veil will lift on Gears 5 Versus in style!


But if you’re like us, we’re most interested in when we get to play ourselves. Fortunately, that too is not far off:

We know you have plenty of questions about the Technical Test – from how long it will run, to how you can get it and which retailers will offer access. The good news is answers are coming VERY soon – like tomorrow soon. For those looking to take a sick vacation day, the Tech Test begins on July 19.

Our Take

There is a tremendous amount of lead up to the launch of Gears 5 and it’s great to see Versus getting this much attention early-on. It signifies a deep investment into the mode(s) and hopefully a thriving community between Xbox an PC with the help of Game Pass. We certainly have our gnashers ready.
