Microsoft just dropped a potential bomb today, as it has announced that starting on day one, anyone who picks up the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition for Xbox One will also score the ENTIRE Gears of War catalog. This also includes anyone who picks up the Gears of War: Ultimate Xbox One bundle as well.
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.
That’s right, you’ll be able to play not only the original Gears of War from the Xbox 360, but also Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3 and Gears of War: Judgement, all thanks to the pending Xbox 360 backwards compatibility.
And for those who already have the original Gears of Wars and are also signed up to the Xbox One Preview Program, you’ll be able to try out the backwards compatibility starting today.
Gears of War: Ultimate releases for the Xbox One on August 25, 2015. No word on when the PC version will be released as of yet.
