PSA: Get Gears 5 For Only $1 With Xbox Game Pass
Save big on the new Gears of War game.
Microsoft's next big game, Gears 5, launches very soon, and you can check out our Gears 5 review-in-progress right now. The new shooter from The Coalition arrives on September 10 for Xbox One and PC, though you can actually play much sooner, as Gears 5 unlocks soon for many. It's a full-price game, but there is an easy way to pick it up for as little as $1 USD.
Because it's a first-party game, Gears 5 is included at no extra cost with Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass subscription program on Xbox One and PC. Right now, Microsoft is offering the one-month Xbox Game Pass subscription for only $1 USD as part of an introductory rate for new subscribers only. Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One costs $10 USD / £8/ $10.95 AUD per month.
Xbox boss Mike Ybarra recently reminded us of this offer in a tweet of his own.
