Hoping to play Gears of War's popular Horde Mode with the remaster? That's not going to happen.
Horde mode is the greatest, especially for replay value it would've been nice if they included it But Gears 1 didn't have a horde mode so I understand why they left it out
Oh yeah, huge shame. I spent so much time playing Horde with friends. Fully expect it to make an enormous return with Gears 4. That said, it's a shame they don't just wave it away with a "yeah why not", since it's not like Horde mode is 100% connected to the story anyway.
Ohhhhww! I wanted it. However, with Backwards Compatability, I can soon play Gears 2 Horde Mode, my favorite, as I can beat all 50 stages by myself, setting shields up, while holding down the Fort! I'll be there day 1 for Gears Ultimate, with the day off. I'll play till my daughter gets home, then it's Campaign Co-op!
of course not... its gears 1 not gears 2... should of thought it was obvious ...
because adding content is such a horrible thing that adds value....
I know, how dare they...
It never have horde mode so I don't get the complaint. It is not like they took away mp when it had them from last gen like other games are doing..MP is still there now on dedicated server and eventually cross play with PC. Add to that it has 5 additional levels that were only on PC.
Complication comes from adding stuff to old code. I mean my God, look at MCC! I don't wanna wait 8 months to play with my friends again. Mp/coop campaign will be plenty. That said I wish 343 would stop being soo fucking stubborn and add firefight to Halo 5. I really miss the Firefight from Reach.
They could have easily implemented this. Everyone loves Horde mode, so why not? Unless they're going to hammer out remasters of 2 & 3. Totally expect it.
It's dev laziness. Horde mode has become a staple to the franchise and should have been added. Watch it come down the pipe as DLC, disgusting. This is microsoft after all, kinda surprised they haven't started charging for continues when you die.
Microsoft studios being so lazy and greedy they didn't include multiplayer in The Uncharted Collection oh wait...
Yeah, cuz sonys soooo much better. /sarcasm
I didn't realize that this was just GeOW1. Too bad it isn't a trilogy remaster like MCC.
Yea it would be cool but they will all be backwards compatible and gears 3 is one of the free games this month I'm pretty sure. There was a huge sale last year I believe and I got all of the GoW games for 5 bucks each so once it's backwards compatible I will have the entire collection. With reach as well to add to the mcc
Its a shame this didn't turn out to be a collection. I was debating getting a XB1 after a gears collection and some of those 2016 games drop. I wanted to get caught up on 360 exclusives that never came to PC as part of my purchasing decision.
Yeah, not sure why they decided on re-releasing only the first game. At the very least include 2 and 3, since 2 is the better of the four.
The first one is the only one I've played because its the one that came to PC. I was thinking about grabbing a XB1 on black friday . . . with a halo and gears collection, while waiting for things like quantum break.
Pretty sure it's because they want to avoid the horror that was the Master Chief Collection. Also 2 was not the best. 1,3,2, judgement.
2, 3, 1, Judgement. Not that 1 is bad, but it just doesn't feel as polished as 2 does.
Am I living in an alternate universe where Gears 2 mp WASN'T a broken mess that took 20 minutes to find a match at launch? Because it did, and it was awful. Havent played judgement, but Gears 2 is definitely the worst Gears I've played. Didn't really care for the Dom/Wife plot either. Gears 1 and 3 were the best by far.
Well... you can now play those 360 games on xb1. Gears 2 and 3 And Gears 1 is the best out of all of them.
Was not impressed with the beta. The game is so outdated. This game will last like 2 months until its population is dead.
Nostalgia usually makes games sell well but die off fast. Gamers don't buy consoles to play older games so that sentiment sinks in once the nostalgia wears off.
Yeah maybe to you. The beta was much, much better then the original. And a lot of nice gameplay tweaks. So no it's not "outdated"
Looks like I'm gonna be playing a lot of team death match
No worries. But im more worried about 30 FPS in campaign. That is so lame, a game from 2006, no excuse. I hope more ppl demand 60 fps for singleplayer. UC collection is going for 60 fps, but no mp (UC4 mp beta).
I would've rathered a Gears collection like MCC
After the MCC. .. I doubt they'll be doing collections like that anytime soon. But... it sure would have been nice
Still buying it :D
No! Campaign mode is all I got then..
Love gears. Horde mode on Gears 3 was my fav all time game mode. But this is Gears 1 so I'm not worried. Just hope they give it us on Gears 4.
Gears 3 in general was my favorite of the series but gears 1 is what captured fans hearts so I understand it and I think they held off horde mode for something special in 4. That's my thoughts
Why didn't they just redo Gears 3, it would have been so much better..
No horde.... A damn shame...
It's Gears 1 not 2 not 3..... Of course it wasn't going to have horde or faster movement like people expected for whatever reason. It was said it would be Gears One in 1080p 60fps and nothing more. They added some casual game modes to cater to others which I think is a bad idea, because it divides the community
Relax everyone. BC will provide you all the horde mp you need from part 2 and 3, coming this fall, with the added bonus of playing against x360 players. Relax, take a deep breath, there are other options to play horde on XB1. :) Gears 1 was made to provide a cross platform play between xb1 and PC in which the PC version of Gears was already released many years ago.
Soon as Gears 3 is added to xbox backwards compatibility list- won't matter haha but I don't see why they can't add in horde mode..
what a let down! smh
Did people really think this was happening tho?
why wouldn't it tho? that's a lame reason by Ferg
Wouldve been great if they added it in, no doubt, but as some people have already said this is a gears 1 remake and there was no horde in gears 1, so why is it such a surprise that it isnt being included?
Had no expectations of it as it was not in the first game at all wow .
the fact they had to confirm this shows gamers stupidity these days since it wasn't in the original
after hearing the studio that did this whine and cry about how hard and how much time it took i think its safe to say this wont be surprising when its less than great.
didnt expect it so...
I'm no xbox guy but it might come through as a patch take a look a Halo for xbox that didn't come with all the package until they have been updating it so u guys never know it might come in a patch
