Have ultimate and downloaded it already but XBL is down. It won't start. Any idea if there is a way to play it?
Go to your network settings and set the console to offline. You'll be able to sign-in and play the campaign or any other single player content you have.

I never thought I'd see a rainbow in a Gears game but sure enough its one of the first things I noticed at the start. A nice touch from the devs. Live is still down for me though so I haven't been able to try Escape mode which I'm really looking forward to.

All the disconnects and end of match not saving stats is getting frustrating. I’ve completed two long Horde matches and after the match is over it says something went wrong and it doesn’t say I’ve completed Horde matches are zero stats. Plus matches don’t load, kicked out of middle matches. Might just wait a couple weeks or they say it’s fixed before I really put time into this.

Gears 5 is awesome!....when it works. I’ve experienced the second most buggy launch game of this gen behind only Master Chief Collection. Right now I can’t finish Act 3 because it keeps glitching. I’ve had to restart the game between 10 to 15 times due to errors since yesterday.

Microsoft has done a lot of things better in the past 2 years. They’re still not above pushing out a broken game at launch and fixing later. Community needs to stand up to this.

I haven't tried MP but have experienced 2 bugs in single player, I had to restart a checkpoint because the robot companion wouldn't recharge his ability and then later the game just crashed out to the menu and I needed to be started again.

Seems to be all companies :(. Control is a s*** show, Days Gone is a s*** show. FH4 online was an online mess.

I've had this happen too.
On PC I haven't had any real problems other than one mission had one enemy sniper spawn in an area I couldn't reach, and the game seems to think the collectibles I've collected are not worth counting.

Problems seem not to effect everyone. Depends on your region.

Man...I was ready to rave about how 1st party could turnaround right here. Up until the point my entire game files corrupted, game was amazing. After having to reboot so many times the past two days, I now have to restart the campaign. Restarting checkpoints no longer works. This is inexcusable. Putting Gears 5 campaign on ice for a long time. Have no urge to restart knowing this could happen again.

Microsoft Quality Control is so f’n bad. It’s one thing when 2nd party games like State of Decay and Crackdown launch broken. Their two biggest releases to end the gen, Forza Horizon 4 and Gears 5 have major issues at launch. Gears 5 is the worst I’ve seen since MCC. Haven’t had a game crash and glitch this much since I was a PC gamer 20 years ago.

I've had the game crash on me twice. Take a NG screen grabs kinda makes it stutter for a second. That said, I'm loving the campaign. It's tough too (playing on hardcore).

I found my inner twelve year old (screaming "aw f*** you!" several times) while dieing like, 7 times on this fight with a snatcher and those damn juvies (who have killed me more than any other enemy type!)

MP and Horde isn’t any better. Disconnects, bugs, stats not counting towards challenges. It is frustrating. Tired of MP games launching like this.

Figured out workaround with campaign. Just play offline. I unplugged my Ethernet connection after starting Gears and it let me continue despite it being a Game Pass game. Finally got past the checkpoint I was stuck at. Figure I’ll need to continue doing that until the servers are fixed. Someone mentioned in another forum it’s a DDOS attack and for whatever reason Gears saves to servers first in campaign. When servers are struggling, your campaign will glitch out when it tries to save. At least I don’t have to restart.

Game is so f’n good when it’s not glitching. Really the best Microsoft exclusive in years...including Forza Horizon.

Horde is better because of the different character builds.

Arcade works for people like me when don’t like shotgun fests.

Just fix the servers and this game is amazing. For my personal taste, Gears 4 felt like a 7.5. Gears 5 feels like a 9.5 when there’s no technical issues. Love this game. Went from Gears fatigue to looking forward to what Coalition does with the next Gears.

Yeah some of those battles are a challenge. Juvies suck balls. I just finished a boss fight this morning that took me a few times to get past. There were f bombs galore coming out of my mouth on that one.

Its not the game thats broken. Its the servers. Dont start with the misinformation stuff. Its just not accurate.
