Gears 5 Players Receive Bonus Loot Following Early Access Issues
For those who were able to play Gears 5 a bit early thanks to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, the road was a bit bumpy. Server issues popped up, essentially making the game unplayable. While it wasn’t a constant thing, The Coalition felt it was best that everyone who got to play early received some bonus loot to make up for the problems.
The Gears 5 devs recently took to Twitter to reveal that Early Access players will be awarded five days of Boost, which will provide bonus XP for the duration of the boost, as well as 600 Scrap, the in-game currency that is used to craft cosmetic items. According to the studio, this bonus loot should appear within the next 24 hours.
As a token of our appreciation for your patience and support during this weekend’s Early Access, we’re awarding 5 days of Boost (Faster progression) and 600 scrap (Craft Skills or Supply cards). Look out for it in the next 48 hours.
Thank you so much playing Gears 5!
