This Technical Test allows us to stress test our servers over two focused Test Periods to ensure the best possible experience when large volumes of players rush in at launch. For our PC fans, it gives us a critical opportunity to get the game onto PCs with unique combinations of hardware and software at scale. If any unforeseen issues arise, it gives us the opportunity ahead of launch to identify and address any issues ahead of release. And of course, getting the Tech Test into your hands means we can gather your valuable feedback on each of the three modes to inform our development as we march towards launch day and beyond. Thank you for your support and excitement for the Gears 5 Tech Test. We can’t wait to join you out there to play some Gears 5 Versus! Gears 5 is set to launch on September 10, 2019, for both Xbox One and PC.
