We’ve heard the lancers revving up in the background for some time and now Gears 5 is almost here to barrage us once more. If you’re looking for the best Gears 5 pre-order price then you’ve absolutely emerged from the right part of the net.
With a switch of the protagonist to Kait Diaz, we should get more of a new perspective on the usually gruff and grumpy series, though we’re still not expecting anything less violent. Yep, chewing through the Locust with bullets and chainsaws is absolutely the recipe of the day. And, of course, you can still bring a friend along to share in the glorious carnage once more – either in the co-op campaign or multiplayer horde mode. To be honest, the original Gears of War campaign still holds a special place in my heart for that reason alone. Here’s hoping the latest entry is able to repeat that, then.
Right here, we’ve scoured through all major retailers to bring you the best pre-order price for Gears 5. Further on you’ll also find information on the Ultimate Edition, the Gears 5 Xbox One X Limited Edition bundle and all of the best Gears 5 merch that is being released alongside the game.
What is the Gears 5 release date?
Gears 5 will be released on 10th September for Xbox One. It will also premiere simultaneously on Xbox Game Pass for subscribers, so there’s a good way to try it for yourself instead of paying full price.
Best Gears 5 pre-order price
Gears 5 is up for pre-order at every possible retailer you can imagine. For the most part, you can expect to pay the same price everywhere. A handful of places have dropped substantially below the RRP, though. In the UK, you can currently pre-order Gears 5 for £42.85 from ShopTo. In the US, the best current Gears 5 price is $49.94 from Amazon US.
Gears 5 Ultimate Editon pre-order
Because we live in the year 2019, there’s obviously going to be a Gears 5 Ultimate Edition too. This version of the game includes the Ultimate Edition Character Pack, 30 days of Boost, an Ultimate Edition exclusive Steelbook and Gears 5 Sticker Sheet. You’ll also get Early Access with the Gears 5 Ultimate Edition that allows you to fire up the game 4 days early! Only a handful of retailers have this version available and the price is stuck at £69.99/$79.99 everywhere.
Gears 5 Xbox One X Limited Edition bundle pre-order
Alongside the game, Microsoft is also releasing a Gears 5 Xbox One X Limited Edition bundle. This exclusive 1 TB console features a chilly rendition of the iconic Crimson Omen logo buried beneath ice and snow. You also get the Kait Diaz Limited Edition controller with its metallic armour design.
Of course, a copy of the Gears 5 Ultimate Edition is included in there too. Better than that, though, you get digital codes for all previously released Gears of War games in the mainline series. It’s a stonking package for the biggest Gears 5 fans out there. If you want to secure your own, the Gears 5 Xbox One X Limited Edition bundle is available to pre-order from these retailers:
Gears 5 Xbox Wireless Controller – Kait Diaz Limited Edition
If you don’t want to hand over the money for an entirely new Xbox One X but still want to get your hands on the Kait Diaz Xbox One X Controller, the good news is that slick design is being sold separately too. It’s listed at an RRP of £59.99 in the UK and $74.99 in the US, though you can find it slightly cheaper from a couple of retailers below.
Best Gears 5 accessories and merch
Alongside the Gears 5 Xbox One X Limited Edition bundle, Microsoft is also set to release a handful of other Gears 5 themed accessories and merchandise. Some of this stuff ranges from the useful to the ridiculous, with Xbox One external hard drives at one end and a replica Lancer at the other. If any of these interest you, it’ll be listed right here.
