    Morning mate
    I know, I "talk with D almost daily still. She streams a lot now.
    There is a high active female userbase on Gears still.

    >Earn Esports Kait in Gears 4 and Gears

    Is that this weekend? I wil have to fire it up then, but Apex legends season 2 has started... which does not help. I might have minor addiction issues there when I have spare time these days. Not that I ever get on for that long.

    Am I right in thinking there was a Gears 5 beta or something this month via game pass?

    Hi mate
    Kait is July 13/14. You need to watch esports for an hour and play 5 games of Escalation, luckily you do not have to win 5 games!

    From the site:

    If you are looking to secure your Esports Kait character on the Road to Gears 5, you’ll need to watch 60 minutes of the tournament over the course of the weekend while logged in to Live.GearsofWar.com to complete Part 2 of the challenge. This will be your one and only chance to complete this objective, so don’t miss out!

    As a reminder, Part 1 of the Challenge is to complete 5 Matches of Escalation. You can find out more about the Road to.

    As for the beta/tech test:

    TECHNICAL TEST DETAILS
    We know you have plenty of questions about the Technical Test – from how long it will run, to how you can get it and which retailers will offer access. The good news is answers are coming VERY soon – like tomorrow (today!) soon. Tech Test begins on July 19.

    I'd imagine you could just bung it on in the background and mute it?

    Does anyone know if Microsoft are releasing a limited edition Gears 5 console?

    We have not heard anything yet. I have asked The Coalition on a few occasions but no reply as yet.

    Slightly concerning as by this stage in the run up to Gears 4, we already knew we were getting a limited edition console and pads.

    As per above, can probably do the live feed time, but finding Escalation matches is a bitch. Generally only find TD and KotH.

    Hi mate are you still Xbox or PC? If Xbox you will find games, just be patient...as in 30 minutes sometimes. Once in a game you usually get a few on the trot at least.

    I have done it and will watch the stream but I'm not sure I will use Kait that much of at all. Sam is my girl ;)

    We are getting end of round/match announcers back!!! this may not seem like a big deal, but it was sorely missed in 4. This sort of thing just adds to the atmosphere so much.

    ...and we are getting emotes! which I don't really care for, but whatever I suppose.

    I have realised the timing of the beta is a bit shit for me. I hope it lasts a few weeks!

    Hi mate
    At the moment we have 2 "events"

    The test will be available to download for all eligible players on July 17. The technical test will open on July 19 at 1 p.m. ET (18:00UK) and will run until July 21. The test will then reopen on July 26 at 1 p.m. ET and stay open until July 29.

    Hopefully grab some Horde/Escape with you and the boys in the coming weeks and months.
    I tend to play mp with the same 5-10 people nowadays*. You boys all left me alone :( ;) ;)


    *I'm actually playing a lot more of Gears 3 mp lately, I prefer it to 4 by a good amount.

    Still Xbox, unfortunately don't have time to wait around for 30 minutes to get a match, my gaming is rather limited when having a baby! Hence why I've not pre-ordered Gears 5 or Borderlands 3 yet.

    And Bernie has always been my female player of choice, we have the same attitude heh... what's that, you can't hear me? Hah!

    @Ror

    Nice one. Just seen the "arcade mode" reveal trailer, can't link...if you (or Jono) would be so kind ;)
    It looks FECKIN ACE and is the best reveal so far and that includes the esports stuff last weekend.

    After the Gears 4 maps revealed during that event, this is the tonic we need, couple of maps, well areas of we have not seen yet!!

    Pumped for Fri night
