It’s quite the way to take accountability for the errors of one’s ways.
Those who suffered through the server issues that plagued the Gears 5 Ultimate Edition early access launch were not forgotten.
The game was marred by significant matchmaking and connection problems, with every game mode — campaign, Horde, versus multiplayer, etc. — experiencing extended matchmaking times. Players were even randomly kicked with a myriad of errors.
As apology for the shaky launch of an otherwise excellent game, Gears 5 developer The Coalition gifted all player with five days of boost for all XP earnings, as well as 600 Scrap.
Scrap, in case you didn’t know, is used to craft skill cards, something players missed out on earning as a result of the game constantly disconnecting.
Did you run into any of the Gear 5 launch problems, and do you think The Coalition did enough to make it up to players? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
