For fans of the franchise, just having an HD remake of first Gears of War
title was exciting enough but now the deal is getting all the sweeter.
Microsoft has now announced that those players who play the new Gears of War: Ultimate Edition
title between August 25th and December 31st 2015 will unlock the entire GoW
franchise in the backwards compatibility programme. This means that Gears of War
, Gears of War 2
, Gears of War 3
and Gears of War: Judgment
will all be playable on the Xbox One.
All this Gears
goodness comes on top of the Ultimate Edition's new maps, modes and missions, early access to the Gears of War 4
multiplayer beta, new Achievements, improved haptic feedback and an additional difficulty level. Can it really get much better?
Along with backwards compatibility news, Microsoft has also released another clip in the series showing the behind scenes work on the title. Following on from the gameplay
trailer, the latest clip focuses on the work that has gone into updating the weapons, vehicles and the fans favorite COG characters from the series.
