Danny goes hands on with Gears of War: Ultimate Edition at Gamescom and comes away impressed.
They really did go above and beyond if you compare it to recent remasters and some yet to come. All the other Gears games free, 60 fps multiplayer, 1080p and it looks beautiful. Well done to the team at Coalition, cannot wait to pick my copy up!
If they put this much effort into this just imagine how good Gears 4 will be.
I watched some direct-feed footage last night, and unfortunately the frame-rate looked quite unstable in some areas. Hopefully I'm proven wrong and Coalition manage to lock the final build (single player) at a locked 30fps.
Maybe Danny (guy in the video) played the PC version because campaign mode on the Xbox One is confirmed to run at 30fps.
Good job we have professional concern agents like yourself to raise awareness of these issues, but maybe you take too much upon yourself, Im worried you will get burnt out from all the worrying you do.
Haaaaa.your comments always crack me up.
I can't wait to pick this up but people need to give it a rest praising this remaster. They couldn't even get the SP at 60ps which was a big disappointment for me. Still gonna buy it, hopefully they fixed the screen tear but somehow I doubt it.
more like a remake.. Much better than just upping the res and framerates. Halo 2 anniversary, and Gears ultimate are literally overhauls ... I.. I can't feel my face.
Will they be fixing the terrible screen tearing? Will that be part of the remake?
A heads up, GAME are doing a digital version that's available to buy for £29.99 from their online store, as an incentive you get access to the game a week early!
Physical version can be had for 22 quid, I'll wait the extra week :p
Remade then just plain mastered!
Uncharted Collection & Master Chief Collection are how you do remasters. Not this.
?????? What does the Uncharted Collection do that is better than Gears Ultimate? Removing multiplayer and completely leaving out one of the games in the series?
Its going to have multiplayer, the Uncharted 4 one :)
That's a beta. What about the full multiplayer from 2 and 3 that is just gone for no reason?
God of war remaster lol
Yeah, its a graphical overhaul and not a remaster which is better ofcourse. Remaster is largerly same as the original with upped detail by using the original dev assets and resampling higher quality game substitutes.
To me Gears is a re-master. I do not consider Halo MCC (outside of Halo 2), Uncharted Collection, God of War III, nor Sleeping Dogs remasters. To me, they were game engine improvements without touching the content assets from the original. Gamers have become complacent to accept the other titles mentioned as re-masters. It is unfortunate really.
Remaster != remake
Halo 1 was a remaster in MCC, too.
You just described a remaster. which is what they are. Like how starwars remastered for dvd/blu-ray are the same exact movie but in better detail, lol.
