It’s a great day at San Diego Comic-Con, especially if you’re a Gears of War fan. During one of the panels, John DiMaggio, the voice actor for Marcus Fenix, Xbox and The Coalition shared insights on the development of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition. The team debuted a behind-the-scenes look video at how they recreated some of the most iconic cinematics in the game.
The panelists also revealed the Xbox One Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Bundle, available for pre-order (US) (or Canada) today and launching 25 August (while supplies last). The bundle will be available for $349 (ERP) at select retailers – including Microsoft stores and microsoftstore.com – and includes an Xbox One 500GB Console, an Xbox One Wireless Controller featuring a 3.5mm stereo headset jack, a full digital game download of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, early access to the 2016 Gears of War 4 Multiplayer Beta, Superstar Cole multiplayer skin, and a 14-day Xbox Live trial.
Gears of War: Ultimate Edition remasters the classic Xbox 360 game that kicked off the Gears series. Relive the first pulse-pounding adventure starring Marcus Fenix and Delta Squad, his battle-hardened brothers in arms in breathtaking 1080p, including 60FPS competitive multiplayer with 19 maps and six game modes, as well as five campaign chapters never released on console. Everything that made Gears such an instant classic is back, along with plenty of gameplay improvements from the series’ more recent installments, in a beautiful HD package.
