Gears Of War: Ultimate Edition To Launch With Every Xbox 360 Gears Game

Gears of War is popping out of its emergence hole for its debut on Xbox One, with the Ultimate Edition packing free downloads of the entire Gears of War franchise.
While only the first Gears of War is getting an overhaul with new art, cutscenes and a complete multiplayer package running at 1080p and 60fps (Sadly, the campaign is still 30fps), Ultimate Edition players can download the Xbox 360 versions of the entire trilogy – plus the polarizing prequel, Gears of War: Judgement.
You’ll have to play Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on Xbox Live sometime between its launch on August 25 and December 31, 2015 to unlock the bonus downloads of the less ultimate Xbox 360 editions of Gears of War, Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3 and Gears of War: Judgment ( developed by Bulletstorm developer, People Can Fly). The games should become available for play and download as soon as Microsoft rolls out the first wave of backwards-compatible Xbox One games this fall.
According to Microsoft, every Gears of War game will also be available separately via the backwards compatibility program, so you’ll be able to drop in the discs and play if you already have them. If not, Gears of War: Ultimate Edition just became especially attractive to series newcomers who are unfamiliar with active reloads, roadie runs and the not-so-distant revving of a chainsaw bayonet.
What do you think of this gargantuan deal on the Gears of War franchise? Would you rather every Gears game be remastered or was The Coalition smart to not make the same mistakes that 343 Industries did with The Master Chief Collection? Let us know in the comments.

Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ. My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up. I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities. My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality. The runner-up for my favorite game of all time would be Star Fox 64.
