We know some sort of Gears of War Xbox One game was in development, but who would have guessed we’d learn about it before Microsoft was ready? A leak occurred on Russia’s website for the series, since removed of course, and it detailed the Gears of War Xbox One remaster on the Gears of War 3 Xbox 360 page.
The leak offered all kinds of specifics about the Gears of War Xbox One remaster. Naturally, there are updated audio and visuals for this HD remaster, bringing things up to 60fps. Features from Gears of War 3, like gameplay elements and characters, would be implemented. There are new control schemes, Team Fight, King of the Hill and Gnasherom multiplayer matches, an expanded campaign with 90 minutes of additional content, and extra achievements. It even seems like there’ll be new concept art and comics available in some sort of gallery for fans to enjoy. Apparently, it even has an August 25, 2015 release date.
Now, bear in mind that this is just a Gears of War Xbox One remaster rumor for now. Though all of this information appeared on an official Microsoft website, it’s best to maintain a healthy sense of skepticism until it’s officially revealed at Microsoft’s press conference at 9am PT/11am CT/12am ET on June 15, 2015.
