Especially in times of corona virus and self-isolation, free PC games are of course extremely welcome. All the more gratifying that Gears 5 is now starting a Free Week on Steam.
When is Gears 5 free? The free week on Steam starts on Monday, April 6th at 7 p.m. German time and then runs for exactly seven days. The end is the next Monday, April 13, also at 7 p.m. German time.
Where's the download? To take advantage of the free promotion, all you have to do is visit the Gears 5 Steam product page. There you will find a thick, light blue bar that leads you to the free download.
Is it really worth it? Yes! And now we will quickly clarify for you with three unbeatable arguments why you should definitely take advantage of this Free Week.
1.Gears 5 has a rating of 88 in our test
To put it simply: this thing is a great game! We gave Gears of War 5 a top rating of 88 in our GameStar test and the cover shooter really deserved it. Because it offers a brutal, powerful shooter feeling that hardly any other genre representative can manage.

In addition, Gears 5 delivers a story that could have been straight out of a Hollywood blockbuster, fantastic graphics, wonderfully disgusting opponents, optional open world elements, and, and, and. In short: If you haven't played it yet, you should definitely make up for it!
2. Gears 5 is one of the best co-op games for PC
Especially when you need something in self-isolation, at least to hang out with your friends over the Internet, Gears 5 is perfect. Because it provides some co-op opportunities, thanks to which you can also play in a group.
Among other things, the complete campaign for two play through, there are also extra co-op modes such as Horde and Escape. As a result, Gears 5 has also earned a place in our top list of the best online co-op games for the PC.
3. You can easily complete the campaign in a week
The main story of Gears 5 can be played not only in co-op, but also in a relatively short time. You need almost 12 hoursto reach the end credits and that should be relatively easy to do in the seven days that the game is free to play.
So not only do you have the chance to add the game briefly, but you can use Free Week to complete the entire adventure – and that for 0 euros, if the game normally costs 70.
If you have an Xbox Game Pass, you are by no means dependent on the free promotion. Because with the subscription you can play Gears 5 anytime you want.
