Surprising and not so surprising news came out of The Coalition, formerly Black Tusk Studios, during Microsoft’s E3 2015 presentation today.
As you’ve probably guessed by now, a Gears of War: Ultimate Edition is indeed real and is fully rebuilding the original Gears of War on Xbox One in 1080p and 60 frames per second. The surprise? The public beta starts today and can be downloaded from the Xbox One Store. The game officially launches on August 25.
