Gears 5 Free Weekend Now Underway

The Gears 5 free weekend we mentioned on Monday is now finally underway on Steam as well as theoretically on Xbox One and Windows 10 if you can figure out how. Here's what they announced at the time about this chance to check out the steroidal shooter sequel:
Don’t have Gears 5? No problem. It’s easy to get in on Operation 3: Gridiron, because Gears 5 is part of Free Play Days starting today, April 6 through April 12. All Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members can play Gears 5 online with their Gold friends during Xbox Free Play Days! Console, Windows 10 PC, and Steam — everyone can play together.

We’re all in this together. Let’s get in some game time with our friends and jump in!
