Microsoft is prepping another Xbox One System Bundle and its meant to honor the re-release of a classic coming out next month. Can you guess what it is? If you said Rare Replay, I like your style, but you’re wrong. Instead, Microsoft will bundle together a digital download of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition and an Xbox One system on August 25.
In addition to the game, the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Xbox One Bundle will include a 500 GB Xbox One system, an Xbox One Wireless Controller (with a 3.5mm headset jack), “early access” to the Gears of War 4 Multiplayer Beta, the “Superstar Cole” multiplayer skin, and a 14-day Xbox Live trial.
As part of their 2015 Comic-Con presentation, Studio Head Rod Fergusson also unveiled a behind-the-scenes video documenting The Coalition’s work on remastering the game’s cinematics. The video is the first in a nine-part series detailing the game’s development, so expect to hear plenty more from Fergusson’s team before Gears of War: Ultimate Edition’s August 25 launch.
