Second Weekend of Gears 5 Tech Test Available for Xbox Live Gold Members

Last weekend, The Coalition hosted an early access version of several of the multiplayer modes for the latest entry in their third-person sci-fi shooter franchise.

At the time, only players who had pre-ordered Gears 5 or were subscribed to Xbox Game Pass were able to participate, with these requirements also being enough to guarantee access to the tech test’s return the following weekend. Now, Microsoft has announced that Xbox Live Gold subscribers will also be able to try out the Gears 5 versus tech test for its second and final weekend, which includes the Boot Camp training mode, Arcade mode, and King of the Hill and Escalation competitive modes.

Interested fans can start downloading the tech test now before it goes live tomorrow at 10 AM PT and runs until July 29 at 10 AM PT. The full version of Gears 5 will release on Xbox One and PC on September 10.
