The Coalition is bringing you some new content for the original game in the form of Gears of War Ultimate Edition, and Microsoft is bringing it to you for free if you wish to buy a console!
At the San Diego Comic Con, it was revealed by Rod Fergusson, the head of Coalition that Microsoft is bundling the game for free with an Xbox One that will go on sale on the game’s release.
Back in June it was announced that the Gears of War Ultimate Edition will be unleashed to Xbox One on August 25 i.e. next month. Effective immediately, the developers had also launched a beta testing phase that lasted one week and got most of us hyped up.
All that is old news though and if you are looking to play the Ultimate Edition when it releases, the deal couldn’t be sweeter than this. Of course that is if you don’t already own an Xbox One.
