How to Get the Best Deals on Gears 5
There are already a couple solid discounts available for Gears 5, so we’re breaking down the best deals on the web:
Xbox Game Pass — Starting at $4.99 a Month (Standard/Ultimate, Xbox One/PC)
If you subscribe to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass, you’ll get access to the Gears 5 standard edition the day it comes out for no additional charge. Game Pass is typically $9.99 a month for Xbox One or $4.99 a month for PC gamers. With the subscription, you gain access to a library of over 100 games.
You can enjoy the Ultimate Edition of Gears 5 if you subscribe to Game Pass Ultimate, which includes access to both the Xbox and PC versions of the service and Xbox Live Gold all for $14.99 a month.
Right now, new Gamepass Ultimate subscribers can get two months of the service for $2, at which point the price returns to normal. Since Gears 5 comes out in less than a month, this offer is definitely worth considering. If you only care about the single-player campaign (or if you don’t see yourself sticking with multiplayer for more than a couple weeks), you could get your fill for less than the price of a cup of coffee.
