I bought the game a couple of months ago, and I can only play operation 3, I can no longer play the previous operations or earn the rewards ???
All Operations are time sensitive so after a new one comes in, all previous content is locked away.
Might become available in the future or maybe it never will.
When an Op finishes, it passes on to the next.
There’s no redo for those, kinda have to stay & play to keep getting the stuff.
Kind of makes you wonder if you shouldn’t get a discount based on how many ops you’ll get to complete relative to somebody that bought the prerelease.
For anyone that buys Gears 5 after Operation 4 starts they won’t be getting the first 3 even though they might be paying the full price.
It’s a live service game, so unfortunately that’s not how it works. You gotta be around for the content if you want it.
At least the characters are unlockable forever, and some of the Operation specific content can still be purchased in the store bundles.
