All DLC is included and they should also go into Gamepass.

Someone broke the embargo for the Series X version of Gears 5, some pics here - https://imgur.com/a/Q7eNdmU

Before he deleted his tweet he said he has a 4k video coming. It's been previously announced that Gears 5 will run 4k/60 on XSX in campaign with PC Ultra settings and some settings above that. MP will be 120FPS on both consoles. Digital Foundry previously looked at 2 weeks worth of work on the port here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNZibJazWTo

Man, I can't imagine playing Gears 5 on Series X will be like for the first time. Gears 5 on X1X was visually incredible so you're in for something really special. It's up with Gears 3 as my fave of the franchise too.

I’ve got Gears 5 lined up, I’ll grab Gears Tactics at some point but I have just grabbed Halo Wars: Definitive Edition in the current Xbox sale so I’ll save that to play on the Series X when I get one.

Any idea if more stock of Series X is expected in December?

That looks like a proper Christmas magazine though. Way too early for that nonsence, but its nice to see.

I know, thing is, I looked at GamePass and everything and realised a few things

- I don’t play online multiplayer at all, only a few odd occasions I do so on Switch.
- The indie games they put up on GP I prefer playing on Switch in Handheld mode so I usually pick them up there when they are on discount.

I only buy games when they are on sale so buying Halo Wars for £6 vs getting a month of GP for £11 to then not actually own it after that month was how I looked at it.

The GP thing might change if they get Xcloud running on Switch

I think game pass is about £7 but I get your point if you're not likely to play more than a different game a month. I'm only on game pass while I got it cheap and have been unsubscribed whenever I haven't been able to get it for a few £ a month.

When Microsoft report a 99.999% Game Pass attachment ratio we will know why ;)

Halo Wars 1 and 2, Gears 1-5 + Tactics, Halo 1-5 is how I'd look at it, and you can get 3months for about £20 on cdkeys but ill not go on about it.

I was just going to use Game pass when I get the X but having seen Ultimate Mortal Kombat 11 on some sites for £40 and having not sampled mortal kombat 11 at all yet I'm kinda tempted to order that for my first game.

The Borderlands 3 (free) next-gen upgrade arrives on 10th November. Nice.

Do you need to own the game digitally or can I slap my borderlands 3 disc in the machine and get this ?
