Thanks to backwards compatibility, those who purchase the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition will be handed the entire series to date.
The deal applies to those purchasing the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Bundle as well, with a slight catch.
In order to get the collection, Xbox Live players will have to log into the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition at some point between August 25 through December 31 to gain access to Gears of War, Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3 and Gears of War: Judgment.
The Gears games will be added to Backward Compatibility when the service launches this fall.
All Gears of War titles will be supported on Backward Compatibility when it launches publicly this fall, so if you already 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.
Those who are part of the Xbox One preview program can play the original Gears of War today in Backward Compatibility.
More information is available through Xbox News.
Gears of War: Ultimate Edition hits Xbox One on August 25. It’s also coming to PC, but has not been dated.
