Gears of War 5 Pre-Order bonusses (?)


Devs, please, if you are giving bonusses for the pre-order of the game make it something worth the price like a campaign expansion DLC and not something like in Gears 4 that was just skins no one really liked.

We should get some DLC story too.

Worth the price? There is no price to pre-order. You spend the same amount of money as anyone else.

OMG and please make sure the Season pass isn’t a ripoff.

An campaign expansion for a pre-order bonus…

There’s no reason to preorder anymore. Digital downloads mean there’s no worry the game will be unavailable at launch and the last few games have made it a point to give away the preorder bonuses further on down the road. they’re never exclusive.

Never heard of any game give a campaign dlc as pre order bonus and I doubt they’ll do it now especially for Gears.

Character skins is enough of a bonus for a limited time. plus i doubt they planned to do campaign dlc during year 1.

It doesn’t cost anything extra to pre order so I’m not sure what price you’re on about.


I enjoyed the fact that Gears Of War 4 allowed preorder buyers to play the game four days earlier. That seems like a fair preorder bonus.

Mm, not necessarily. Vintage Kait has never been up for grabs, and I WANT it. However, that was a beta bonus which I assume was for players who pre-ordered way ahead.


Thats not totally correct,she showed up for a short time where you could craft her for 2400 scrape(It might have been by mistake)but hey at this point it was a good mistake…

The beta was open to all for one week, and owning Gears UE gave you an additional week.
To unlock Vintage Kait required reaching level 20 during the beta, which - given the limited game modes and maps - was MUCH more of a grind than you would expect.
This, Kait being an unknown character at the time and the fact that your level was reset and didn’t carry over into Gears 4 is why I believe a lot of people didn’t bother…
