I remember back in high school when the first Gears of War came out. My friends and I spend hours soaking out screen in locust guts and blood. It is so awesome to see a developer still care about an IP and still give it updates after a decade.
One of the complaints people had with the Xbox One remaster of the original Gears of War was that the map restrictions and variety was somewhat limited. Today, developer The Coalition has announced that a new update for Gears of War Ultimate Edition will increase the number of maps playable in all modes. How are they doing that? By removing the map restrictions.
Many people are already enjoying the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on the Xbox One or Windows 10. If you are one of those people get ready to get a lot more enjoyment because if you own and are playing Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, then you are already in the beta for Gears of War 4!
One of the biggest selling points of buying the HD remaster of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition was the inclusion of backwards compatibility codes for all the Gears of War games. Today, developer The Coalition has revealed the date on when players can get their compatibility codes.
The Coalition has released a video diary for Gears of War: Ultimate Edition detailing how they went about the process of preserving the original visual tone of the dark, post-apocalyptic game. When Gears of War came out, nearly a decade ago, they executed a bleak and heavy world unlike other traditional sci-fi settings. Director of Art, Chris Perna explains, “We wanted to the world to have weight, not this clean light kind of froofy sci-fi. We kind of came up with this theme, ‘destroyed beauty’ with the environments and that made them feel heavy and almost burdened with the elements of time and war.”
