The Gears franchise is famous for its competitive and versatile multiplayer experience, and Gears 5 continues that tradition by offering five thrilling modes. The best multiplayer sessions across these modes call for the best immersive audio experience like the Razer Thresher for Xbox One – Gears 5 Edition wireless headset. With Windows Sonic for virtual surround sound for superior positional audio along with a lag-free wireless connection and digital microphone for crystal clear communication, the Razer Thresher for Xbox One – Gears 5 Edition headset provides a high-quality  audio experience, so your game-winning callout to clinch the match with a Gnasher elimination doesn’t go unheard. A bonus in-game item and Lancer weapon skin will also be included within the Gears 5 Edition headset. The Razer Thresher for Xbox One will be available in September, more details to come.

PC gamers know that a mouse and keyboard can be the difference between life and death out there on the ravaged landscapes of Sera, and our friends at Razer are here to help with a new Gears 5 inspired keyboard and mouse. That’s where the world’s first wireless keyboard and mouse designed for Xbox One comes in with the Razer Turret for Xbox One – Gears 5 Edition and Razer Thresher for Xbox One – Gears 5 Edition. Get incredible precision on a ten keyless keyboard with an inbuilt mouse mat, paired with a mouse featuring the acclaimed Razer 5G Advanced Optical Sensor.

A bonus in-game item and Lancer weapon skin will also be included within the Gears 5 Edition headset. The keyboard and mouse will be available in September for $299.99, more details to come.

Last but certainly not least is the Seagate Game Drive for Xbox Gears 5 Special Edition, the perfect collector’s item for the true Gears of War fan. With a 2TB hard drive and USB 3.0 Plug & Play functionality, the Seagate Game Drive for Xbox Gears 5 Special Edition also includes a Lancer weapon skin, Supply Drops for use in Gears 5, and a 1-month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership to play Gears 5 in early access four days early before its September 10 launch. If you need even more space, our friends at GameStop will have a 5TB version of the hard drive as well. With Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (your existing Gold/Game Pass memberships will upgrade to Ultimate at a conversion ratio; see xbox.com/gamepass for more details), get all the benefits you know and love of both Xbox Game Pass (at select retailers) for Console, Xbox Game Pass for PC and Xbox Live Gold, including access to over 100 great games for console and PC and the most advanced multiplayer network for $14.99 per month.

Next month, Gears fans will descend upon Sera to help Kait uncover her connection to the enemy and discovers the true danger to Sera – herself, but that doesn’t mean they have to go in alone. With Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, players can squad up four days early (September 6) and play through five thrilling modes and the deepest campaign yet. Preorders begin today at select retailers worldwide, including a Microsoft Store near you and online. For more information on Gears 5, stay tuned to Xbox Wire.

Today in Los Angeles, California, in partnership with 2K, basketball superstar and this year’s NBA 2K20 cover athlete Anthony Davis unveiled three new Xbox One NBA 2K20 Bundles available for pre-order today and hitting store shelves starting September 6. With these new Xbox One NBA 2K20 Bundles, gamers can experience what’s next in basketball culture and hit the court as their favorite athletes just in time for them to face off IRL in the upcoming regular season kicking off in October.

In addition to a standard edition Xbox One X NBA 2K20 Bundle ($499 USD) and Xbox One S NBA 2K20 Bundle ($299 USD), Davis – the newest power forward for the iconic Lakers – showed off the latest special edition Xbox One X ($499 USD) in larger-than-life-size form.

After having some fun unveiling the oversized bundle, Davis went head-to-head with popular NBA 2K insider, Ronnie 2K, in an NBA 2K20 showdown.  Playing NBA 2K20 on Xbox One X, Davis showed off his moves and his new colors in true 4K on the world’s most powerful console. If this match was any preview for what the upcoming season might hold, Lakers fans have a lot to look forward to – Davis had a ball playing as the Los Angeles Lakers and beating the Los Angeles Clippers played by Ronnie 2K.
