During last week’s press conference, Microsoft announced a double dose of Gears of War awesomeness. Most excitingly, Gears of War 4 (now simply titled Gears 4) will launch exclusively on Xbox One in 2016. Current-gen gamers won’t have to wait a year for a taste of the Gears series though, as Gears of War: Ultimate Edition comes out on Xbox One and Windows PC on August 25. So soon!
Gears of War: Ultimate Edition is a full remaster of the original Gears of War, courtesy of Microsoft’s Vancouver-based Coalition studio. Whereas many current-gen versions of old games get only minor facelifts, this Ultimate Edition sports completely revamped graphics, new campaign and multiplayer levels, and many more improvements. You couldn’t ask for a better introduction to (or reason to revisit) the Gears series.
We learned all about Gears of War: Ultimate Edition during a behind-closed doors presentation at E3 2015. Read on for the full intel.
