Gears 5 server update fixes progression problems and more
Gears 5 is a third-person shooter from The Coalition. Not only does the game feature a larger campaign, but it also provides plenty of multiplayer modes. Some of the more underrated features of the game have to be its accessibility support and 60 Hz servers for smooth competitive matches. However, its early-access period hasn’t been without problems.
Last night, The Coalition issued another server-side update which fixed the infamous progression problems. Hopefully, you should see the correct experience, rank, character level, and other details now. The team added, “Over the next few hours… should slowly return to their correct state.”
#Gears5 Update: 10:10pm PT, Sept 8
The progression and stats issue is now resolved. Over the next few hours, your Tour of Duty, XP, rank, character levels, and end of match flow should slowly return to their correct state.
We will update when this backlog has been completed.

It seems like the majority of the problems Gears 5 is facing, even when it comes to its campaign, are related to server issues. Since the title is part of Xbox Game Pass, let’s hope it’s fixed before Tuesday because even more players will have access to the game then.

In Windows Central’s review, Jez Corden wrote, “as a benchmark for visual excellence balanced against stellar performance, Gears 5 is technical wizardry. It also bridges platforms and storefronts… complete with… cross-play. The fact that Gears 5 manages to jam a… 12 to 18-hour campaign, several multiplayer modes, a map editor, and the promise of post-launch support represents one of the best deals in gaming right now. It’s an even better value when you factor in Xbox Game Pass.”
