Gears 5 is likely to be the big highlight here. The game is expected to launch on September 10 and if one of Microsoft's biggest first-party games releasing this year. And if you're playing on Xbox One X, you'll get the game in 4K with HDR running at a fast 60 fps. Gears 5 is up for preorder now for $50 and will come to Xbox Game Pass as well.
