Gears Esports Testing -Execution 2.0 and Control

With today’s launch of Execution 2.0, there have naturally been many questions and lots of attention surrounding the potential for both Execution 2.0 and Control to be part of Gears Esports’ future. Execution was a huge part of Gears Esports for many years, and we are so excited to see how this new version of the game mode plays out in Gears 5.

We wanted to waste no time in seeing just how much of an appetite there is for these new modes, so we’re kicking off a two week testing period that will begin TODAY, and run for the next two weeks straight on Similar to previous testing periods, we will be conducting multiple surveys and gathering as much data as we can once the testing period is over. We want to hear from players and fans alike, so everyone will have their chance to complete a survey and have their opinions heard. If you don’t fill out a survey, we assume you’re happy with whatever decision is made!

You can also get your first look at competitive Execution 2.0 tonight on Emergence Days! Tune in to starting at 5PM EST.
