Gears of War: Ultimate Edition was confirmed at E3 2015 during Microsoft's press conference. It is set to be released worldwide for the Xbox One in North America and Asian-Pacific countries on August 25, 2015, and Europe on August 28. Ultimate Edition will feature five unreleased chapters of the campaign of the original game and players who purchased the Ultimate Edition can participate in the multiplayer beta of Gears of War 4, which is set to be released in 2016. The remaster of the game will also be released for Microsoft Windows.
The Coalition taps into the nostalgia and feel of the original, while bringing over the best elements from later games. Leaving the fundamentals intact, the team surgically blended gameplay and game mode elements to give players the kind of experience they expect from modern gameplay.
