    Done her, nowhere near as rough as last night. Equal playing field if itís one shot kills for all. Just probably did less damage or something.

    Looking at Gears 5 how can next gen be a massive leap over this in terms of visuals?

    I'm expecting greater number of characters on screen for next gen Gears, also I'm guessing Del will be the main character for Gears 6 if they're going through the main cast.

    How many times have we all said this kind of thing over the generation jumps, pretty much every time I think. We donít know what we are missing till weíve seen it.

    Ray-tracing. You can see next-gen today on high-end PCs. It is a huge leap in terms of visual quality.

    Of course, it also comes at a massive performance hit. Don't expect next-gen consoles to be doing it at more than 1080p until we hit the mid-cycle hardware iteration.

    I am looking forward to the 2nd gen ray tracing enabled cards. We still don't even know what ray tracing capability the new consoles will have.

    You should get even if you beat on beginner mate. Any level is fine. You get a separate cheveos for insane ? Or is that what you mean ? I thought you bumped down for a fight ?

    @Frogofdoom
    Agree. I thought the tone was very much Gears 3.

    Currently playing this on my PC on my 4k HDR tv.

    I have a 1070 card so expected 1440p or maybe even 1080p. I just stuck the game on "minimum 60fps" and......what is this wizardry happening on screen. This is an visual and audio delight.

    The game is buttery smooth and looks absolutely incredible. I really didnt expect visuals of this calibur on my rig. The Coalition it would seem have done a fantastic job on both xbox and PC.

    I never really cared for Gears 4 that much, but I am enjoying 5 so much more than I ever did that game. Just started Act 2 and cant wait to get back in. Done a couple of rounds of multiplayer too and this seems excellent also. Time will tell if I spend hundreds of hours playing like I did 2 and 3.

    Is it just me, or should a major platform-marquee game like this really have had a bit more QA and stress-testing before launch?

    You would think so. I think tying everything to the servers has been a bit of a mistake.

    @JamboWayOh as soon as you see it just quit and reload, minimises the lost progress. The auto save is usually fairly frequent tbf, bar the first time Iíve not lost too much now I can see when it happens, are maybe Iíve got lucky.

    @ChiefGB

    Yeah I've been doing that. It's just something that should never be an issue.

    Have to say how good it looks running on 1st gen xbox one, I know the game will built for the ground up for xbox one but they did a amazing job for hardware that was released in 2013

    None of the reviews mentioned the game crashing/locks, makes you wonder if they were stopped from talking about it?

    I believe they were all given review code that was not Internet enabled, so they couldn't try out the multiplayer aspect. It would definitely explain a lot.

    Is it not a server thing? There probably werenít problems with servers pre release

    You can change the drive it installs to, just need to change the drive windows 10 installs apps to.

    Staggering that MS still can't sort this shit out for their PC gaming clients, given they own the damned OS. Refusing to install to anything but c:\ is the kind of thing I remember from particularly buggy DOS games back in the early '90s.

    Hell, it's not as if having a small SSD system drive and a larger storage drive is in any way uncommon these days.

    Edit: Will be interesting to see if the Steam version works any better when it releases on Tuesday.
