Gears 5 Operation 2 begins next week.  2 maps for Vs (1 new, 1 returning), 14 player Free for All mode with 3 dedicated maps, 2v2 Gnashers maps, new characters, new Tour of Duty.  Haven't seen any mention of new achievements.

Codename Lockhart? I bet it has a unique system shell shaped like FF7 Tifa's chest so Microsoft can finally make a run at the Japanese market.

Perhaps Gilderoy.  Talks a big game, but when push comes to shove, isn't really up to snuff.

I could be wrong, but I thought that was the way it worked even before GPU?  I remember there being posts on reddit back before GPU even started that described game sharing GP.  The other person had to search for the game in the store.  Since it's not tied to their account (it's tied to the home console), the GP section in Games and Apps won't be "active" for them.

 

I remember when I signed up for the $1/month GP deals (before GPU was a thing), I would tell my game share partner to look up the list of GP games on the website and then search in the store to download whatever he wanted to play.  (This was before they added that Game Pass tab to the Home screen.)

Yeah he might have to seek them out but should be able to download

It's never showed GWG or GP games on my girlfriend's S which has been set to my Home console for two years unless I'm signed in.

Ok, thanks.  I'm just misremembering then.  Gettin' old.  Though with my backlog, he's got more than he'd ever have time to play.  Probably more than my 5 year old nephew will have time to play.

Has anyone noticed a change to how GPU works with game sharing?  I gave my old XB1 to my brother when I got an X and kept that as my home console.  When he went to the My Games and App list, I'm pretty sure it used to show both GwG and Game Pass lists, but that doesn't show since I upgraded to GPU.  I thought it might've been because I needed to log in on the system to sync my subscription change, but I did that this past weekend and it still doesn't show the subscriptions for him.  I queued up a couple Game Pass games while logged in and he was able to play them on his account, so that still works.  Am I misremembering and the GwG and Game Pass games used to just show in the regular ready to install list?
