Gears 5 Has Gone Gold – Celebrate with our Full Achievement List

Today, The Coalition and Xbox are proud to announce that Gears 5 has gone gold – a major moment ahead of its launch next month. This is significant for us as game creators, as it means the game disc has been released to manufacturing so that everyone can enjoy and play on September 6 through Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Gears 5 Ultimate Edition.

“From all of us at The Coalition, we couldn’t be more excited to share Gears 5 with the world. I want thank the team here who has worked so hard for our fans, and we all hope you are all as excited as we are to play Gears 5,” said Rod Fergusson, Studio Head at The Coalition. “This is furthest we have ever taken the franchise, living our studio mantra of ‘if you want to go far go together’.”

With five ways to play Gears 5, this is easily the biggest entry in the Gears of War franchise. Whether players choose to experience the Campaign, compete in Versus, outlast the Swarm in Horde or outrun them in Escape or build the perfect map – there is truly something for everyone.

“I’m very proud of what the team at The Coalition has achieved,” said Matt Booty, Head of Xbox Game Studios. “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.”

Matt, along with leaders from Xbox Game Studios, joined Rod and the team to celebrate together.

Our next stop is Germany, where Gears 5 will be taking over gamescom with the reveal of the all-new Horde mode on Inside Xbox on Monday, August 19 at 5:00 p.m. CEST (8:00 a.m. PDT) followed shortly thereafter by a world premiere of the story trailer for Gears 5 campaign on gamescom: Opening Night Live at 8 p.m. CEST (11 a.m. PDT).

Adding to the excitement for the fans, we’re also unveiling the full achievement list for Gears 5. You’ll be able to add to your Gamerscore across 71 achievements spanning Campaign, Escape, Versus, Horde, Map Builder and more. Whether defeating 50 waves in Horde or completing an Escape Hive without firing a single shot, dedicated players will have challenges of all types to tackle and overcome in Gears 5 while racking up another 1,000 points. Lancers up to those looking to complete Seriously 5.0.
