During the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition panel at San Diego Comic Con, The Coalition Studio Head Rod Fergusson announced something quite interesting.

Starting on the game’s release day, August 25th, the Xbox One console will be bundled with a free copy of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition.

Considering that Gears of War is one of the historical games that define the Xbox brand, this is definitely a great deal.

Update: the deal is now available for pre-order, at the usual price of $349. Below you can see the package, also including an exclusive Superstar Cole multiplayer skin, and early access to the Gears of War 4 Beta. The listing also confirms that there will be 19 multiplayer maps in the game.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
