Synopsis


Winner of over thirty Xbox 'Game of the Year' Awards

Experience the game that launched one of the most celebrated sagas in entertainment with Gears of War: Ultimate Edition. The shooter that defined the first generation of HD gaming has been painstakingly remastered in 1080P and modernized for Xbox One, and is packed full of new content including five campaign chapters never released on Xbox.

The story of "Gears of War" thrusts gamers into a deep and harrowing battle for survival against the Locust Horde, a nightmarish race of creatures that surface from the depths of the planet. Players live and breathe the role of Marcus Fenix. A disgraced former war hero, Marcus seeks personal redemption as he leads his fire team against an onslaught of merciless warriors from below.

    I just played the beta and I gotta say so far i'm impressed. The online is really good. Plus it's not like a quick remake, they took they're time to make the graphics great for the xbox, started from the ground up and it's only 40 dollars. I'm Excited to play the full game when it comes out, while I wait for the GEARS 4.

    This game is gonna be dope, 5 new chapters added and new myltiplayer content as well. This game looks gorgeous on xbox. The graphics engine totally revamped from the ground up courtesy of (Coalition Studios) formerly Black Tusk Studios. The.beta felt like I was playing a new game, its been a while since the last gears game. Its been even longer since gears 1 was out. This is definitely gonna be added to my library. I suggest to any gears fan to pick this up...at this price, thats a steal.

    You should definitely buy this game if you're a Gears of War fan.

You will get the original Gears of War collection from Xbox 360 to play on your Xbox One when they release the backward compatibility for Xbox One in the Fall FOR FREE, but only if you play on Xbox Live during the above dates. (Includes Xbox 360 titles Gears of War, Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3 and Gears of War: Judgment) Source: https://gearsofwar.com/en-us/games/gears-of-war-ultimate-edition/backwards-compatability

    I used to be a Gears of War fan before I took a serious (4 years) break in gaming. I played the Beta and I have to say this game has beautiful graphics and gameplay mechanics. If you loved any of the Gears games, take a chance with this one and I'm sure you'll love it. Brings back so many memories but in all their remastered glory...

    This game is going to be awesome! I remember playing the original release in 2006 and now I can look forward to the Ultimate Edition of the original Gears of War... Cannot Wait. The Golden Hunter pre order bonus skin for multiplayer is great .

    ...will let you explode your enemies head with the torque bow, saw your enemies body in half with the lancer, and explode multiple enemies at once with the boom shot: Gears of War: Ultimate Edition. Gears changed the game years ago, and we must all pay homage to the greatness of the original game, pick up this remastered edition, and blow each others heads/bodies to bits!
