At the end of last week, The Coalition announced plans for post-launch support for Gears 5 for the next six months only. The game will receive a large number of extra content including maps, characters, weekly events and … Photo Mode.
Although the latter was not included in the list of incoming news, the confirmation comes from the Twitter profile of Rod Fergusson after a question from Destin Legarie (editor of IGN USA), who complains about the lack of a photo mode. In response, the manager of The Coalition has invited Destin to have a little more patience, a clear sign of how Photo Mode is developing and its arrival presumably not too far in time.
Gears 5 was released last September 10 and according to analysts it is the first mega-hit for Xbox Game Pass , an affirmation testified also by commercial results and community involvement: the new Gears is currently the most played title on Xbox, having succeeded to unseat Fortnite from first place after more than twelve months of absolute dominion. A good success for Microsoft and The Coalition, Gears 5 actually represents the rebirth of the series after the excellent reception already reserved for Gears of War 4, which was not rewarded but sold up to expectations.
Gears 5 had one big miss. The lack of a photo mode.
