I currently have Gears 5 Ultimate physically on my One X. It’s cheap right now so I wanted to buy it on my Series S digitally. Do I need to buy the Ultimate Edition AGAIN on my Series S to get Kat & Emile or how would that work?
Like say I buy the regular edition digitally now, what happens to my progress? Will it just say I don’t have Kat & Emile on my profile now? Does it just count as a new game and none of my online progress will be carried over unless I buy Ultimate again? How does that work…
Might be a bit confusing, hoping somebody can follow
It doesn’t specifically reference your exact scenario, but looks like the halo characters are given to your account from the first account that boots up the ultimate edition, so it looks like you will still have them if I understand it correctly.
That is not quite 100% correct.
The campaign save files one is correct, those don’t carry over (and can in fact get you into soft-lock situations if you start a new game + campaign - Jack will lose upgrades for whatever reason when Acts are finished).
You do however carry-over Kat and Emile.
I can not speak for the special console and controller contents (Jack and Kait or something?) but I assume those were redeemable codes, meaning they should in theory carry over as well?
