Though first released on Xbox One last year, Gears 5 has received an Xbox Series X/S optimization patch, making it one of the best games to showcase the power of the new consoles. With up to 4K resolution, improved textures and framerates, it simply looks and plays better than ever. And since you can play the whole campaign with a friend, it’s also one of the best couch co-op games on Xbox Series X/S, too.
In Gears 5, players take control of Kait Diaz, JD Fenix, and Del Walker, who together form the ‘Delta Squad’. Loaded with weapons and various abilities, it’s up to Kait and co. to take down the threat of the Locusts. There’s a gripping story to follow, tonnes of enemies to take down and some sumptuous visuals to take in – and with a local co-op buddy by your side, it’s even more enjoyable. Gears 5 is available on Xbox Game Pass, too.
