Play Gears 5 for free on Xbox One this week
Xbox One owners can download and play The Coalition’s Gears 5 for free this week as part of Free Play Days, Microsoft has announced.
Between today, April 6th, and April 12th all Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers will be able to play the game for free.
Last week, developer The Coalition released Operation 3: Gridiron for the game. This update included a new single-life objective-based game mode that tasks two teams with running a neutral flag into their opponent’s end zone. Each round lasts two minutes and the first team to reach 13 points wins. The update also introduced new characters, maps, achievements, and more.
In other news, players currently have another chance to unlock the Batista skin. All players who jump in before April 20th will automatically receive the Batista skin and Batista Bomb finishing move.
Gears 5 is available now on Xbox One and PC.
