Gears 5 ‘Operations’ Post-Launch Calendar of Free Content Detailed
Gears 5 is out later today, at least for owners of the Ultimate Edition or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. The developers have thus wanted to inform the community of their post-launch plans for free multiplayer DLC. The new concept revolves around 'Operations', which will last three months and 'refresh' the gameplay experience in multiplayer.
PC users with an AMD graphics card can already get their optimized Adrenalin driver, while NVIDIA will probably post their Game Ready driver later today.
