Microsoft had a great announcement for those who are eager to jump into the Gears of War franchise with the release of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition. The company has revealed that anyone who has played Gears of War: Ultimate Edition starting on August 25th until December 31st will be able to unlock the entire Gears Collection which is set to be released sometime this fall.

This means that not only will those who buy Gears of War: Ultimate Edition be able to play the enhanced remake, but also the original Gears of War, Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3, and Gears of War: Judgement. Of course if you already have copies of these games for the Xbox 360 Microsoft has stated that they will also work as backwards compatible titles and it is worth noting that the first Gears of War will be available as a backwards compatible title for Xbox One preview members later today.
