‘Gears of War’ Remaster is happening

Brand new footage captured by XboxDVR shows a gorgeous revamp of ‘Canals’ map

Late last night, brand new footage appeared online that confirms all the rumors of a Gears remaster coming to Xbox One. What we still don’t know, however, is if the remaster will be the entire Gears of War trilogy or simply the first game in the series.

As long as the footage remains uploaded, I’ll share the links!

Here is a Locust butchering a few COGs at the spawn

Here is Marcus fragging some Locust

A few things to be noted:

  • Rumor has it the game runs in 60fps, but this video was recorded prior to XboxDVR moving to 60fps game capture
  • Better Lighting
  • Better Textures
  • Smoke Effects
  • Improved Blood and gib effects

Thanks to NeoGAF, here’s a comparison of the original ‘Canals’ on 360 paired with the remastered update:

Black Tusk Studios has yet to comment on the leaked footage. Paired with the Brazilian classification board leak and now real footage, it seems we can now confidently say that Gears of War Ultimate Edition is coming to Xbox One this holiday. We can expect a full reveal next month at E3.

What do you think of the new footage? Have their been too many remasters this gen? Let me know in the comments or on Twitter
