I’m playing on xbox,
and yes, I can play around with the character lists and customization all I want and it seems like I choose a character.
But when the game loads, I always end up playing as the last choice I made in a ranked match.
See this is something I have never understood. The fact the this game doesn’t have a way to pick the character you want to play as from the main menu is crazy to me. In older games you would go to your settings and chose your preferred character, It was as simple as that. Also, if you are playing with friends and they start a quickplay only the host change their character in Gears 5. I don’t know why the game doesn’t let other players change the their character. It’s annoying because then we have to close our lobby and rehost it so that my friend can change his character when we play quickplay. Its such a simple feature to add to the game and it goes a long way but its no where to be found.
