Gears of War was one of the defining games last generation, paving the way for most modern cover based shooters. Due to its popularity, Microsoft isn’t only making a fourth (technically fifth) installment into the franchise, but they’re also remaking the first Gears of War with new visuals, gameplay tweaks and bundle map packs.
To get a good idea what has changed and what is being reworked, The Coalition has released a new behind the scenes video today showing the effort that has gone in redesigning the cinematics for the Ultimate Edition. The big emphasis here is on a certain character’s death relatively early on in the game, and how The Coalition wanted to it to feel more impactful. Gears of War: Ultimate Edition will be available August 25 exclusively on Xbox One.
