Gears 5 was one of the most expected games, and now that it’s here, players have a lot of problems with it.
Halo: Reach character skins are missing from Gears 5
Furthermore, many gamers who bought the Game Pass Ultimate are complaining that they didn’t get the Halo: Reach Character Pack:
Hi, why with the Game Pass Ultimate i didn’t get any of the bonus (i got T-800 & sarah connor tho) ?
So I pre ordered/downloaded Gears 5 Ultimate edition through xbox game pass. I got the terminator characters. But I don’t see the Halo Reach characters. I see others using them.
If you didn’t know, the Gears 5 Ultimate edition has some additional perks that are not present in the Standard edition. Among them, there is a Halo Reach Pack included and a 30 day boost.
Some unlucky players didn’t get any of the two:
I also don’t see them. I also don’t have a boost for 30 days which your supposed to have with ultimate edition.
Many other reports confirm that they got nothing from the Ultimate edition.
How can I get Halo: Reach characters in Gears 5?
This issue could be related to accounts and sharing profiles. There isn’t a confirmed solution yet, but you can try the following workaround, as it fixed the issue for some:
- Uninstall Gears 5.
- Sign out the profile with the Ultimate account.
- Reinstall the game from the store and launch it using the sharing profile.
After that, you should get the Halo: Reach Character Pack along with the other perks included in the Gears 5 Ultimate Edition.
Keep in mind that this is just a workaround and not a long-term solution. We’ll just have to wait and see if there will be a more permanent fix in the future.
