Xbox and Microsoft have released a new launch trailer for the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition. However, this trailer puts a new spin on an old favorite. It brings back the “Mad World” soundtrack by Gary Jules which played with trailers for the original release of the first Gears of War game way back in 2006. You can check out the new video in the player below.
The trailer re-created the classic Gears of War video showcasing the new visuals and graphics for the upcoming Xbox One exclusive and update of the action-shooter classic. According to Xbox, this new trailer showcases how the original game is “back and better than ever.” There is definitely something nostalgic about hearing “Mad World” edited to Gears of War footage again. It definitely looks like the developers did an exceptional job in recreating this classic game for a next-gen console. You almost cannnot tell it was originally released in 2006.
Gears of War: Ultimate Edition has been remastered in 1080p and at 60FPS. The game features new content, including five campaign chapters never released on Xbox. The game is due out on August 25 this week, and it is available exclusively for Xbox One.
