Gears 5 has not yet reached release, but the developers have already revealed their plans to support the game.
What is known
Every three months the project will receivefree updates, which the developers nicknamed Operations. Each update will add new modes, characters and maps for multiplayer. Along with the update, the game will receive more features and patches to improve performance and more. Players will also find new missions and challenges.
Gears 5 will also feature a Tour Battle Passof Duty with tasks for which players will receive exclusive rewards. With the release of each new Operation, the pass prizes will be updated. The Battle Pass content will be purely cosmetic, so players can expect skins for weapons and characters, blood spatter, emotes, and so on.
Please note that Tour of Duty progress is countedfor participation in Confrontation, Escape and Horde mode. So gamers who stay away from PvP will be able to unlock all the rewards (I'm looking at you, Destiny 2).
The first Operation starts with the release of Gears 5and will last until December. Journalists have already played the new creation of The Coalition and gave high scores. Owners of the Ultimate Edition will be allowed into the game on September 6, while others will have to wait until September 10.
