Gears 5 Steam PC 0x80004005, Please help

Has anyone else had this issue and if so, found a way to get around it? Bought the Xbox pass last week to DL the game, windows wouldn’t let me DL Gears 5, anything else but not that. Said screw it and bought the ultimate edition on Steam.

Since buying it last Friday though I haven’t been able to play a single online match, it always says unable to connect to the gears of war service with the error 0x80004005 at the bottom.

Been waiting five days for a reply from my support ticket and would actually like to play some more of the game I spent $100 on. Any help would be appreciated.


Have had the same issue. I have not found a workaround but would love to see a response if anyone else has.


I am experiencing this issue as well. really frustrating.
