Gears of War Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:

    @JesseGryphon @GearsofWar @Xbox @XboxSupport @CoalitionGears is the problem that nobody reads the schedules or the specifications for pc

  • LostVisualz_ Brandon Gilbert (@LostVisualz_) reported

    @OctusTC @TonedScorpion @RobinDesigns_ @CoalitionGears I don’t even get the error, I click install and it doesn’t give me a prompt to follow afterwards. Seemed to be working yesterday then stopped for some reason and failed

  • TonedScorpion Chad Stark (@TonedScorpion) reported

    @OctusTC @RobinDesigns_ @LostVisualz_ @CoalitionGears On the Microsoft store on pc when I click install (I own the game pass and I pre ordered it) it gives this message (there was a problem on our end try again later) it’s been happening since yesterday.

  • TonedScorpion Chad Stark (@TonedScorpion) reported

    @OctusTC @RobinDesigns_ @LostVisualz_ @CoalitionGears I’m on the most recent windows update. It’s either a gears problem or Microsoft one.

  • TonedScorpion Chad Stark (@TonedScorpion) reported

    @LostVisualz_ @CoalitionGears Yep same. I talked to Microsoft support and they said it’s a problem on the gears dev end.

  • NotEvenJauuuwn John NotEvenJauuuwn (@NotEvenJauuuwn) reported

    @HatakeOsawa @CoalitionGears @Windows @Xbox I too am having the same exact problem.

  • OujaStrike King Snake (@OujaStrike) reported

    Have fond memories to the #GearsofWar 3 Beta woke up at 5am est was able to download it at 5:18 or 5:22 and never had any issues, betas now days so many issues. Just keep in mind that we may have issues when the #Gears5 Tech Test starts tomorrow be Patient.

  • Sawanyo_ Sawa (@Sawanyo_) reported

    @DiamondRyce @GearsofWar @CoalitionGears Had the same issue with ASUS's AuraSync software. Different game, same anticheat. I wouldn't blame CG for this.

  • Sayonaracn Abdulaziz.a  (@Sayonaracn) reported

    @GearsofWar @JasonMHough @NanMcNamara How can buy gears 5 UE GAMESTOP IS NOT WORKING

    @AudacityJF @GearsofWar @BonnieJeanMah @GearsViking @aegies @JasonMHough @thrillothechase Unfortunately the stream had a lot of issues, clearly, and now she is gone.

  • AudacityJF Francey #Gears5 (@AudacityJF) reported

    @RInthechat @GearsofWar @BonnieJeanMah @GearsViking @aegies @JasonMHough @thrillothechase yeah i did... thats the issue

  • SamanthaSmart01 Samantha Smart (@SamanthaSmart01) reported

    @GearsofWar my friend is having problems joint horde lobby on gears 4 he keeps getting error code 0x00000d1c please help

  • OctusTC TC Octus (@OctusTC) reported

    @calcheese @BrianHosey2 @jairohutchinson @ZXAlexander @GearsofWar We do know codes are being redeemed so they are getting out there - you'll generally only see people who have problems posting online. The Xbox team are doing an amazing job at relaying this info to retailers and following up though, so hopefully you hear something soon.

  • calcheese ㋛ clipboard (@calcheese) reported

    @BrianHosey2 @jairohutchinson @ZXAlexander @GearsofWar Yeah the only people I see having problems are ones who physically pre-ordered from Walmart like myself. Gears / the coalition has done nothing to help.

  • Draconarache 🚀Lord Dracon (@Draconarache) reported

    @CoalitionGears Please fix GoW 1 Ultimate low fps in Windows 10 1809-1903😢

  • vVvTibiryus | vVv 𝖳𝗂𝖻𝗂𝗋𝗒𝗎𝗌 | (@vVvTibiryus) reported

    Due to a clarical error by my self, we will NOT be playing the tech test for @GearsofWar today. I am NOT that special.

  • pl_barrell BaRReLL 🎮🏆🏎 (@pl_barrell) reported

    @GearsofWar Error 404: Face not found

  • PaulLivo Livo (@PaulLivo) reported

    @MazharulAlam25 @CoalitionGears @XboxSupport @nodezero @OctusTC @danasissons Game pass ultimate yes. Xbox were contacted due to a billing issue with the game pass, however during the chat my friend was informed that he must pre order Gears 5 to access the tech test which is incorrect. Just wanted to make TC aware of this misunderstanding.

  • PaulLivo Livo (@PaulLivo) reported

    Hi @CoalitionGears I thought I should make you aware of quite a bad issue with @XboxSupport . My friend is having billing issues which aren't your issue, however xbox support are wrongfully informing him he must pre order the game to access the tech test. It appears that this...

  • JuancaPalomares Concludedtub47 (@JuancaPalomares) reported

    @ZetlonDK @chinoman29 @GearsofWar @XboxGamePass Nope, I tried ur method, reseting MS and I erase the MS almost 4 times, probably will be Windows problem :b

  • SlyFlip Sly FLIP (@SlyFlip) reported

    @ConchCertified @iiAbusiive @GearsofWar @XboxGamePass @CoalitionGears @OctusTC And that's the problem....smh

  • CI2AWMEI2AX Jonathan Corey (@CI2AWMEI2AX) reported

    @CoalitionGears @LN_Samurai @Microsoft I have version 1903, still the same issue. Won't download.

  • d3adpool7 D3ADPOOL7 (@d3adpool7) reported

    @CoalitionGears Amazon is listed as one if the retailers taking part in the Tech Test but haven't sent out codes and when contacting customer service they have no idea on what code customers are talking about. Things arent looking good 😔😭

  • llLokzll Jimmy B (@llLokzll) reported

    @CoalitionGears @GearsofWar Lets just hope this gears doesn't crash so much as gears 4 on pc.

  • astorrra Avenge Rev (@astorrra) reported

    @Axfen1 @CoalitionGears no problem bro anytime and you aren't a dumbass lol.

  • Axfen1 Axfen (@Axfen1) reported

    i figured out the issue thnk u @astorrra and @CoalitionGears for helping me with the issue im just a dumbass and didnt know i had to update it

  • LegacyTheSavage Josh 🐺 (@LegacyTheSavage) reported

    @Axfen1 @CoalitionGears If you’re on PC the issue might be that you don’t have the latest version of Win10 installed (check for updates) & you need the Xbox (beta) app not the console companion app installed too. Once I got both of those I could install it (with the XGP)

  • PackyBrennan Brennan Davis (@PackyBrennan) reported

    @Colteastwood @Psychogrotesque @joonaet @GearsofWar @XboxGamePass And if you look at all the games that have been reviewed the day of their release, none of them had smoking, even for Gears 3, three months before it's DLC came out. It's so weird this whole issue has become.

  • Psychogrotesque Ladies and Gentlemen... Mister Eerie. (@Psychogrotesque) reported

    @joonaet @GearsofWar @Colteastwood @XboxGamePass I don't think that's a real issue* There, I fixed it for you. Cheers.

  • ReignofBane ✖️Bane the Brummie🐍 (@ReignofBane) reported

    @AshtreyGaming @GearsofWar No problem dude 👍😎

  • Jon_Mac90 Jon mcKellar (@Jon_Mac90) reported

    @GearsofWar Got an issue with 2 Achievements coming through in gears 4 looking for some assistance

  • SandyPoint604 LonerLife/BeGreat (@SandyPoint604) reported

    @GearsofWar Preordered from @Walmart called them no one in customer service knew anything about the 5×5 code smh

  • DarthChillash Darth Chillash (@DarthChillash) reported

    Seems that I'm not playing @GearsofWar Tech Test on my PC. My PC can run Gears 4 on highest graphics settings at 150 fps, but Gears 5 has some weird sound issues during intro video that tells me what to expect in two days. Unplayable game. See you on Xbox then @GearsViking !

  • KuRRi0uS Trashy 🇵🇷 (@KuRRi0uS) reported

    @dopeitscud @GearsofWar @XboxGamePass Let me know if you still having issues

  • redstarchicom BB👌🥛🍌🙊🖕 (@redstarchicom) reported

    @kopjedi @CoalitionGears @luc3nt_x Sure no problem, if I end up getting a bunch of codes I'll send an extra one to you

  • JuancaPalomares Concludedtub47 (@JuancaPalomares) reported

    @CoalitionGears @GearsofWar There's a error in the Microsoft Store on pc :u

  • Justinpou82 Justin Pou (@Justinpou82) reported

    @javierm_88 @RealMisterChef @CoalitionGears Its not expensive but why do i have to pay for a service i wont use that much just to get the tech test 😒

  • joonaet joonæt (@joonaet) reported

    @Psychogrotesque @GearsofWar @Colteastwood @XboxGamePass That's not a real issue.

  • BroHogPlays BroHoG 🇨🇦 (@BroHogPlays) reported

    Gears 4 Crashes On pc so much it isnt even worth booting up , heres to hoping @GearsofWar Fixes the issue with the release of gears 5

  • Psychogrotesque Ladies and Gentlemen... Mister Eerie. (@Psychogrotesque) reported

    @joonaet @GearsofWar @Colteastwood @XboxGamePass In most media only adults are shown smoking and if it is a child it's a bad kid or shown as something dumb for kids to do. It's depicted as something for adults. Again, not about the smoking but removing adult content in an "M" rated game to protect kids. That's my issue.

  • mikemike1229 mikemikemike (@mikemike1229) reported

    @PlayOverwatch @BlizzardCS has the absolute worst support I’ve ever seen no help at all tweets calls everything and no help. Threw my sons overwatch game in the trash time to go back to @CoalitionGears where they actually help with problems

  • Acearoni Adam Woodson (@Acearoni) reported

    @GearsofWar Just make sure I can ACTUALLY install it on PC and not get an error every 5%.

  • BigIslandBRADDA Braddah K (@BigIslandBRADDA) reported

    @CJPWho @CoalitionGears @ELEAGUETV I thought about doing that but I would at time get the network error message and have to refresh the page. So I had to monitor it.

  • Sci0n_ Sci0n (@Sci0n_) reported

    @BanjoBarrage @b3nT_JCrasto16 @dougb541 @GearsofWar Well here is an assumption, Gears 5 will be utter shite, as it will still have shot gun issues, also people will get bored of it very quick as the series has grown stale.

  • big_tidys Big Tidys (@big_tidys) reported

    @Xbox_Amb_Teagan @XboxSupport @GearsofWar @CoalitionGears Everything checks out fine I just bought the game pass and worked perfectly fine this happened last week aswell I couldn't preorder gears 5 thought there was something wrong with my card checked it was good I bought skate 1 with no issues. Gears 5 is on game pass I'll just play

  • meaty_v MeatyV (@meaty_v) reported

    @xDEVASTATOR_ @nodezero @OctusTC @danasissons @CoalitionGears I agree something needs to be done ,i hope TC is working on this issue,,it just wont be the same if our freinds who love the game are unable to play @OctusTC @nodezero @danasissons @CoalitionGears

  • SheetzAustin19 Austin Sheetz (@SheetzAustin19) reported

    @CoalitionGears I miss understood, I thought what was being said is that anyone who was having issues playing the the Escalation matches would be rewarded regardless off progress as well, my apoligies.

  • zF_Killswitch Killswitch 🇺🇸 (@zF_Killswitch) reported

    @GowFeed I thought @CoalitionGears said we were just missing our shots....glad they are finally owning their bullshit. Almost all of the good features shown so far for Gears 5 is due to the fan base voicing their concerns(often being silenced) about broken features in 4. #TCLied

    @CoalitionGears @ELEAGUETV PC fu*king sellouts, you just solved all the worlds problems by caving, dumb asses

  • CharlieJT21 Charlie Trotter (@CharlieJT21) reported

    @GearsofWar Looks cool until you get 4 full spread hits on someone for them to shoot a wall and body you. Stop bragging about the guns and fix your net code.

  • DestroWod Destro WOD (@DestroWod) reported

    @DrShwazz @GearsofWar I stand by what i said. If they are a bonus its fine but the game need 10 new maps at least at release. Still would had apreciated at least a visual reskin. That was my biggest problem with all the returning maps in 4 season pass, they didn't modified them much unlike in Gow2/3
