Announced at E3 today, 6/15/15, was the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, held within is the first game in the series, but now for the next generation Xbox One. A remastered classic (and personal favorite of mine) is back! Featuring our favorite Marcus Fenix as he leads Delta Squad in, trough, around, and all about the Locust’s tunnels while fighting to save his planet, Sera. We only have to wait for the holiday season of 2015 for this gem as well! Xbox gamers will be able to play a multiplayer beta for the duration of this week.
Also at E3, Gears 4 was announced and we were given some gameplay footage of it. It’s everything we love to see in our games, pure, fast paced, shotgun gnashing, Lancer chainsawing, beast slaying action, and everything has been anted up. The blood physics are more realistic and empoweringly gruesome. The beasts are large, and most definitely in-charge, but best of all, they still explode into a display of blood rain and limbs from a nicely timed, and placed, Gnasher shot. We can expect Gears of War 4 in the Holiday Season of 2016.
