From June 15 to June 23, The Coalition invited players to participate in an Open Beta for Gears of War: Ultimate Edition. Thanks to player feedback, the development team at The Coalition will implement the following fixes and improvements.
"private matches on dedicated servers" Oh joy, oh joy. No more having to worry about host advantage or lag in clan battles :' )
lol, I used to love getting messages from people cussing at me about Host Advantage.
I never played the original, but I was able to try out the Beta. I was really awful at the game (actually awful doesn't quite describe it), but I'm really looking forward to it's release now. I can't wait to play the campaign for the first time, and in split-screen co-op!
Dont worry just keep playin and practising,watch good players closely and you will improve. I went from 0.5 KD from the first game to 1.9 KD in Gears 3 and slightly higher in Judgement. I struggled with the Gnasher for quite a while then it all just clicked,you can do the same as me bud,just enjoy being part of the Gears family and have fun thats all that matters,we all contribute exactly the same amount to the Gears community.
A 9 year old game is gonna take up most of my online playing time this year. Says how good this games multiplayer really is.
My brother is buying an Xbox One specifically because of this game. He loved the original Gears and he loved the beta. He spent more time on it than I had (on my xbox one).
and also how incredibly dry and bland most other mp games have become :/
Active sniper shouldn't stay on player match with none on rank
Active sniper should be gone altogether, horrible cheap way to get a kill.
Couldn't agree more
i loved this game when it came out and prolly would still love it. i only played up to 3 but it still has one of the best horde modes around. i don't see how other devs screw up horde modes so badly when all you have to do is just copy gears... i'm definitely getting this when i finally get an xb1.
Horde wasn't introduced until Gears 2. No horde, sorry bud.
Can't wait for this. My only regret is not have an Xbox 1 (will soon) to play the beta and get some weapon shaders. Can anyone tell me if the Theron guard was playable or available for MP in the beta?
Yea both therons were available
Sweet! Thanks for the reply janny.
I had a great time with the beta and am glad to have made suggestions to improve the game.
Yeah man, I feel like they nailed all the things wrong. The gnasher tweak will be interesting. It definitely needed some improvements for consistency. I am pumped for the blood improvements and the footsteps working so you can hear someone approaching.
Active down removed, that's a shocker. I'm cool with it.
I know this is probably a stupid question but what does "active down" mean?
An active reload is when you time a second press of the reload button perfectly you get a damage and fire rate bonus. If you active reload the sniper you could down someone with just one shot. Pretty cheap!!! Don't think anyone will complain that they removed it.
What they should take away is that color around the enemies on COG/Locust when you see them far away. That is so casual, now I know where them all are. That wasn't in the original Gears of War
I really hope they include the other games as DLC.
It felt really slow to me but it's because I am used to the gears 3 speed. Wish they would've just made a Fenix collection like they did with Halo. I really have little interest in playing a game that's already great looking on 360. It's too bright and colorful now too. It lost it's dark grit.
I kind of felt that they made it look even darker in the ultimate edition? It looks very gritty imo. But i do miss gears 3. We will get it with backwards compatibility by the end of the year anyways ;)
Beta ended already for me.
I found an absolute whopper of a bug, a great whale, the one where Gears 2 and 3 were not also playable
Wish they included the other two installments.
I am happy of the list of improvements. It really looks like they focused in on the most important issues. With these fixes I am even more pumped for the release.
