Another reason to buy gears of war ultimate editon

Post  mosher666 on Mon Aug 03, 2015 7:07 pm

Microsoft has announced that all purchases of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on Xbox One will grant access to backwards compatible versions of the entire Gears Collection. These collection will become available later this year along with the preview program's autumn launch.

And what's more, Microsoft has also revealed that the original Gears of War is available now to Xbox Preview Program members.

"By playing Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on Xbox Live from Aug. 25 through Dec. 31, 2015, you’ll get access to Gears of War, Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3 and Gears of War: Judgment in Backward Compatibility when it launches this fall," explains Xbox Wire.

The move accompanies the upcoming backwards compatibility support being added to the Gears of War games. So even if you don't splash out for Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, you'll still be able to play your Xbox 360 discs through your Xbox One later this year.

"All Gears of War titles will be supported on Backward Compatibility when it launches publicly this fall," explains the post. "This means if you own Gears of War, Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3 or Gears of War: Judgment on Xbox 360, you’ll be able to play them on your Xbox One and utilize some of your favorite next-gen features like Game DVR, Snap, screenshots and more.

"You can even keep all your previously-saved files, game add-ons, achievements and play with friends on Xbox Live no matter which Xbox console they’re on. For those of you in the Xbox One preview program who just can’t wait, the original Gears of War is available today in Backward Compatibility."

Good news, Gears fans!

Sweet. Only Microsoft can give us the same games free twice! Lol! Very Happy

Still, it's good that everyone can play all the Gears online regardless of platform. It would be good if they gave us dedicated servers for them all instead of me Gnashering someone in the back nine times only for them to turn round and kill me with a pistol. Lol. Those were the days! Very Happy

This will mean I will finally be able to play gears 2 again as my disc got scratched a few years ago Smile

It's an interesting move though as I would assume the majority of people picking this up would already have all the games on 360 especially as with the exception of 2 they have all been part of GwG at some point

This will mean I am 100% not buying the HD version as still got loads to do on the 360 games.

Good news

I think that's pretty cool it'll give me a chance to finish off some achievements.

A good gesture on M$ part, but like others have sais, most Gears fans probably still have the 360 versions. They are some of the few games I refused to trade in or sell.

I guess its a good opportunity for any newcomers to Xbox to catch up with the stories before Gears 4 gets released too.

I personally am happy as my son and wife have commandeered my 360 for his Minecraft/ skylanders needs and her Netflix fix. So will be happily playing through the campaigns again soon even though I have all the achievements

Currently downloading the first Gears of War on my Xbone, to play through the backwards compatibility feature.
