The official Gears of War twitter account has given a date for when Gears of War: Ultimate Edition players will receive their backwards compatability versions of Gears of War 1-3, and Judgement. Starting December 1, 2015, tokens will begin to roll out to those who own and have played their copy of the Ultimate Edition.
Anyone who plays Gears of War: Ultimate Edition before December 31, 2015 will be eligible for a token, though make sure you have an Xbox Live Silver or Gold subscription when connected to Microsoft’s online service. The tokens will be distributed in waves over Xbox Live, so keep an eye on your inbox!
