During the livestreams for the Season 1 finals of the Gears of War ESL league The Coalition Studio Hear Rod Fergusson revealed that the older chapters of the series available on Xbox One via backward compatibility have been quite popular.
The Gears BC games and the Gears 1 ultimate edition are really getting fans hyped up for Gears 4
They were free with the Ultimate Edition. Of course they would be popular.
Just cause theyre free doesn't mean anyones forced to play them... I haven't.
he never stated that anyone was forced to play them. With those games being free it's more than likely people will play it/give it a shot because they got it for free.
I think the Gears franchise could go on to become Xbox's flagship title and may encourage 343i to step up there game. Nothing like friendly competition within MS studios to help improve game quality cause I did think Halo 5 a bit of a story problem. Also Gear's popularity is really high right now. Been a really long time since we got a gears game.
I doubt it the only good gears is gears 1. 2 and 3 were let downs and failures to most Gears fans. 4 might be good but I cant see them getting it right for some reason.
I dont think 2 and 3 were failures, def not as good as the first. Judgement was a failure imo, It felt like they loved horde so much they made Judgement story mode like one big horde mode. I loved horde mode but I want it separated from the story mode.
I mean they act like there are a ton of great titles available for BC right now. I just played through Judgment, but outside of Gears, most of my old Xbox games aren't available on Xbox One yet.
