Gears of War 4 and Ultimate Edition Announced

By Marc Caccamise, 4 years ago
Gears of War fans have a lot to look forward to after what was shown off at Microsoft's E3 conference. Gears of War 4 (or Gears 4) was revealed and received a lengthy gameplay preview. Two new characters, one male and one female, stalk a monster through a deserted town on a calm moonlit night. That is until a massive storm rolls in and starts ripping apart everything in its path. Eventually the two, armed with a Lancer, Gnasher Shotgun, and Snub Pistol, face off against these new monsters in classic cover-based, blood-spattering fashion.

Before Gears of War 4 took the stage, The Coalition revealed Gears of War: Ultimate Edition. It contains the first Gears of War game running at 1080p / 60fps, and has a public multiplayer beta starting today. If you'd like to take part in it, you can now register over at the game's page.

Gears of War Ultimate Edition is scheduled to release later this year on August 25th, while Gears of War 4 received a release window of holiday 2016, both for the Xbox One.
