Gears 5 removes Map Builder, two achievements are unlocked automatically

Gears 5 has removed its Map Builder feature, but the good news is that the two related achievements will not be interrupted. Instead, The Coalition has confirmed that both will automatically unlock all players.

Two Gears 5 achievements are related to the creative mode, and if you have not already unlocked them, they should appear automatically the next time you log into the game. A surprisingly generous move from a game whose performance famously demands hundreds hours of player time, right?

If you already have one or both, The Coalition puts on some extra treats instead, as described in the tweet – a special banner for ‘I Made It All By Myself’ and 10,000 Coins for ‘Homegrown Hive’. Sure, they are anything but the most challenging achievements in Gears 5 and will hardly make a dent in the list of 181 men, but a free achievement is a free achievement! It’s certainly far from what Rare did with his outgoing Sea of ‚Äč‚ÄčThieves performance, so the move is likely to be music to many ears.

Glad to see this? Does it help you at all? Is this preferable to just letting the performance die? Let us know!
