Can’t wait for 5 to be the same micro transaction filled mess. Just give me a gears 3 remaster to play instead, I’d enjoy that more

This is the incentive needed to get back into gears and try and get Wings 1! That's Apex blown out the window

TC "says" that certain things will transfer over. I don't see the BS Characters transferring but other skins might. They said they will say something about it soon enough and put a 5 as the background on that particular item card. I'm actually quite shocked they are doing this though. I uninstalled Gears 4 a few months back but once I saw that the Black Phantom skins transfer, I had to reinstall it just to get them and then uninstall it again.

Haha, I saw this and thought the same thing. I’m going to do this, I’ve got a lot of stuff to do still and this is the motivation I need. Saw it was re-up 10 and said nope, never mind.

The end of this road marks the most content released for any Gears game in the series history with 269 characters and 2,384 Weapon Skins
I had no idea skins are now considered "content." A season pass with 'private ownership' of maps is easily one of the biggest season passes ripoffs ever.

I'm looking forward to all the new Gears 5 content: emblems for the Vatican city, Monaco, and Liechtenstein.

The season pass was clearly spelled out beforehand. Anyone feeling ripped off can only blame themselves for that.

Exactly! Yes the season pass was terrible value for money, but no one was duped into buying it. You got exactly what you paid for.

I'm definitely going to go back to Gears 4 to get this, and I'm excited to see what Gears 5 has to offer.

Agreed, perhaps ripoff isn't the best description. Considering how fun the RAAM DLC was for Gears 3, maybe sad excuse, disappointment, or wasted potential is more fitting.

I nearly lost my shit when I read challenge 1 until I realized it is retroactive.

Not really bs. No where when you were trying to get them does it say that these are transferred to Gears 5. You are not entitled to them in Gears 5, you got them in the game they were meant for.

Not entirely true, they wouldn’t confirm or deny any actual DLC content being released for the game. I paid for the season pass to support my favorite series but I honestly thought there would have been some DLC since the the Gears 3 DLC was so good. I don’t regret my decision but I think the Gears 4 season pass had some of the worst value out there.

Almost makes me want to re-install it. Almost. Especially since all it would take is one good speedrunning session or two...

If you can get 5,000 points per versus then you're only looking to do 100 matches. That's not that bad considering the amount of time given.
A little shocked the campaign one is retroactive. Figured they would have tried to get everyone that already got all the new achievemebts to play it one last time.

Re-up 10? No thanks, the lifers can have Ramm. Now I know to quit whenever I see Ramm in the future and in Gears 5
