Which game mode is everyone going to play first?

It’ll be the campaign for me, unless my friends peer pressure me into playing ranked with them lol.

I will most likely play horde with my wife and kids on day one. I will probably play the campaign when solo.

One of my best friends and I have beaten every campaign together except gears 1. We met online in gears 1 mansion execution (our favorite map) best part he actually lived in the same city as me! 12 year bromance began then!

Our routine is to take off several days of work and do a media blackout while we play coop on hardcore until we finish the story.

That is a much better love story than Twilight :wink:

Glad you guys are still going strong more than a decade later.

I will definitely play the Campaign first, Then I will switch things up with the 3 modes, Hoepfully they are all good :smiley: Escape and Horde looks promising to me especially with 3 player split screen, Me and my buddies always love to play any PVE game with split screen, It’s now a reality :smile:

Couch co-op sounds wonderful, and my PC is next to myXbone, so I could have 4 of us playing in 1 room. My wifes PC is in another room so in theory could have 5 people playing in the same house with crossplay for Horde :slight_smile:

I expect it will be a lot of fun, but won’t be many peoples first choice.

Good point! I saw Octus clarify how that worked earlier today :slight_smile:

Although unsure if we get xp for campaign, as in the tech test that had the ally bonus count versus rounds won together, and included escape, horde and campaign bonuses. Could be limited to that alone but does make me wonder.

I think those packs that gives you “exclusive” skins you can get them by playing any mode, Including Campaign, I remmaber hearing that but I may be wrong as always haha

Well maybe David is right, 3 people now!

It was Supply Drops. I think 1 hour play time = 1 Supply Drop.

Campaign for the story. Some MP. Some Escape. Some Horde. Then campaign again for collectibles.
