Gears 5 is set to release on 10 September 2019 (6 September for Xbox Game Pass owners) and now, more than a month before the game’s release on Xbox One and PC, Gears 5 has gone gold. For those who don’t know, if you say a game has “gone gold”, it means the game has completed its development cycle and a master copy is sent in for mass production.

Developer The Coalition announced that Gears 5 has gone gold and with it, some interesting details for those who own an Xbox One X. It is the biggest Gears title ever and also the most technically refined, as it will run at 4K, 60FPS with HDR on the Xbox One X. For those planning to play the game on PC, don’t forget to check out the game’s system requirements to see if your gaming rig is up to the task.
Gears 5 will feature a campaign, a Versus mode, a Horde mode and an Escape mode that all look pretty great. Then, you will also be able to build your own maps.
Studio Head at The Coalition, Rod Fergusson, talked about the game going gold in a post, stating that:

Further, the head of Xbox Game Studios, Matt Booty, talked about the game and how it will run on the Xbox One X:
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”#e033ff” class=”” size=”22″]I’m very proud of what the team at The Coalition has achieved. Not only is it the biggest Gears ever, it’s also the most technically refined, with 4K HDR gameplay at 60 frames per second on Xbox One X, cross-play across all modes on Xbox and Windows 10 and Steam, and updated accessibility features such as Adaptive Controller support. Together with day-and-date availability on Xbox Game Pass, we look forward to welcoming more players into the Gears universe than ever.[/perfectpullquote]
With this achievement, the team also decided to share the full list of achievements for the game, but if you want to avoid any kind of spoilers, you should probably not scroll down in this post.
