New Gears 5 Xbox One X Limited Edition Announced Alongside Lots Of Other Hardware

Gear up your Gears.

21 Comments

Gears 5 is just a month away, and Microsoft has marked the occasion with a Brumak-sized suite of new hardware. Those include new Limited Edition consoles, console bundles with the game, controllers, keyboard-mouse combos, and external hard drives.

The centerpiece of the set is the Xbox One X Gears 5 Limited Edition Bundle. It features a translucent casing and laser-etched cracks across the console case, and a golden Locust symbol along the opposite side. The bundle includes the Xbox One X console, a Limited Edition Kait Diaz wireless controller, and full game downloads of Gears 5 Ultimate Edition, Gears of War Ultimate Edition, and the standard versions of Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3, and Gears of War 4. It also throws in a month of Xbox Game Pass and Gold, and in-game Ice Kait and Ice Jack skins. It costs $500 (£450 / approx. AU$737).

See it at Amazon

You can also get a standard edition Xbox One X Gears 5 bundle for $500, or the Xbox One S Gears 5 bundle for $300. Each of the bundles is now available for preorder. If you already own the console but you want that Kait Diaz controller, it's available separately for $75 (approx. £62 / AU$110)--although you can currently find it even cheaper at Best Buy for only $65.

Other hardware coming to mark the Gears launch includes a Limited Edition Xbox Pro Charging Stand ($50 / approx. £62 / AU$74) launching on August 27, a branded Razer Thresher wireless headset coming in September, wireless Razer keyboard and mouse ($300 / approx. £246 / AU$442) coming in September, and a Seagate 2 TB harddrive that includes a Lancer weapon skin, extra in-game Supply drops, and a one-month Game Pass Ultimate membership. GameStop US also offers an exclusive 5 TB version.

The Coalition recently put Gears 5 through its multiplayer paces with a PvP tech test. Another test, centered on Horde Mode, is set to follow sometime this month. Those tests are open to anyone who pre-ordered, or to Game Pass subscribers. For more, check out the developers' answers to our burning questions.

I just don't know how anyone justifies spending $500 for a console that's on its last legs.

@thedarklinglord: People bought lots of those PS4 Pro limited editions last fall for $450 and the pro is less powerful than the X.

@xhedon: The PS4 (Slim) even has better looking exclusives than most of the enhanced titles on Xbox One X. With MUCH less powerful hardware, because these guys are wizards at development. You play Uncharted 4 on a Slim/or Pro, tell me it's not the best LOOKING game you've ever seen, and i'll write you a big ole check and empty out my bank account just for you. :). Even God Of War. They are also brilliant, both in story and gameplay. Imagine THAT..FACT. 100 million units sold, gee i wonder why that is? No i don't hate Xbox but I pity the console (as Mr T would say).

@xhedon: oh I must have triggered you with facts. Gran Turismo Sport, horizon zero dawn, unchartered 4, god of war , Detroit become human, shadow of the colossus, spiderman, etc. The list goes on. Either you don't have a ps4 pro and have no clue or you do and need your eyes checked.

@onehitta323: I have a PS4 Pro, a Windows 10 Gaming PC, an Xbox One X and a Switch. No need for you to be triggered. Let us know when you see better looking games coming out in future that exceed RDR2 on Xbox One X, as well as Gears 5, Sea of Thieves, Halo 5, Forza Horizon 4, Ori and the Blind Forest, etc etc etc....the list goes on and on. Then again, maybe you only have a PS Pro, so that might explain why you were completely wrong.

@xhedon: ok so you're just saying the same things that I just said. Hopefully you have a good vision/medical plan. I advise you to use it. Also, you lost all credibility by naming a 3rd party game (RDR2) and ORI the INDIE game.RDR2 looks amazing on ps4. They're both 4k. I guess since its xbox you gotta use whatever games you can find since it barely has any exclusives.

@onehitta323: No need to be triggered. I know it's hard for people like you to accept that us multiplatform gamers aren't tied to plastic worshipping such as yourself. We don't even have to insult people like you do. I love using my PS4 Pro, Switch, Xbox One X and Microsoft Windows PC.

It's a win win.

@xhawk27: And I don't understand that, either. I guess if you're the sort of person who tries to collect every console, every iteration, every model, then it makes sense. Or if you haven't bought one of these consoles this generation and it's the limited edition nature that finally hooks you, I could see that. It just seems odd to me that anyone would spend top dollar asking price on a system that's on the verge of being replaced. Buying at a reduced price makes tons of sense to me, but paying full price at this point in a console's lifespan seems mad.

The real question however Gears fans will want to be asking is…

Does it come with a chainsaw?

-THAT'S IN THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE EDITION NINJA APPROVED-
