Gears 5’s technical test begins on July 19

The fifth numbered game in the Gears of War franchise, Gears 5, won’t be out until Sept. 10. Players will have the chance to check out some parts of the game early thanks to the game’s technical test. The test will let people check out the game’s multiplayer features, and it opens on July 19.

The technical test will include a variety of versus modes from Gears 5’s multiplayer, including Escalation, the game’s competitive mode; Arcade, a new, more casual gametype; King of the Hill; and a Bootcamp mode designed to help new players get up to speed before they face off against other players online. The test will also include a special set of in-game challenges called Tour of Duty, which will let players unlock a cosmetic banner that they will be able to use when the full game is released. Similarly, there will be challenges to unlock three unique weapon skins as well.

Access to the technical test will be available to any Xbox Game Pass subscriber or any Gears 5 pre-order customer. 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 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.
