Entire 'Gears of War Collection' unlocked on Xbox One by playing Ultimate Edition

0

Gears 1-4

Microsoft has announced that if you purchase Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, you'll be able to unlock the entire Gears Collection by way of backward compatibility, and now we have a few concrete details on the matter. If you play Ultimate on Xbox Live from August 25 until December 31, you'll be eligible to unlock the collection this fall when it hits. That includes Gears, Gears 2, Gears 3, and Judgment.

When said collection does arrive, anyone who owns it by way of the Xbox 360 will also be able to play their copies, and the original Gears will evidently drop later today for Xbox One preview members. Having played them all, I don't think I particularly want to replay any of them again without a couch teammate.
