    The image above is a supposed leaked screenshot of a very private beta that Black Tusk Studios, the now show runners of the Gears of War franchise, have sent to some very lucky people.​
    According to reports from Polygon and Kotaku, they have seen behind the scenes screenshots of a supposed remaster of the first game with heightened textures, better lighting effects, and 60 fps gameplay in both campaign and multiplayer.​
    You can read the full report on this information in the source below, and I will continue to update as more info comes out. Will continue to take with a grain of salt until a full statement is issued from black tusk studios.​
    The only reason I remain slightly skeptical is the fact that Phil Spencer announced earlier that Xbox is working on multiple projects set in the Gears Universe. This could mean a full Marcus Fenix collection (ala Halo MCC) or perhaps a brand new game in the series.​
    -UPDATE via Kotaku-​

    But will it be released for the PS4? :tpi:

    Also title is a bit misleading. The original GoW is already in HD. Remaster is the word to use for the title imo.

    Man, the semantics of remasters and HD remakes and all that other faff is just too much.

    What can u do with all these HD/Remakes/Remasters/Collections really? A generational gap is always a plus I think instead of a current gen upgrade

    I played all of them way too much but Gears 2 is my most played mp game ever. Awesome games.
    WiiUBricker I'm sure MS bought the IP from Epic.

    Heard this game was plagued with massive desynching issues that basically made multiplayer unplayable

    Speaking of multiplayer, what is the server situation for GoW1? I'm reading they run on XBL servers. Incidentally there's also this rumor about XBL servers (for the 360) shutting down in a year, perhaps they'll use it as an excuse to rehash their major online titles

    All the Gears titles minus Judgement are still played by a 100k+ players each daily. It would be a huge mistake for them not to bring them over to the xbone. I know I would buy a collection of the first 3 titles with 100% of all their DLC.

    All of them were p2p. The better connection you had you would always get host advantage!

    They patched the 3rd game sometime ago with a server. If you played horde or beast modes you would connect through a dedicated xbox server but the server would often be full or down thus forced into p2p mode.

    Ah, After I got the GS from 3 I dropped off it. The MP wasn't as good as 2 but I can't remember why. I think 2 was the best game still!

    Also from Kotaku:

    UPDATE (9:10pm): It’s real. Three different people playing tonight’s test build tell us that it’s just the first Gears of War. This test build is multiplayer-only, featuring the following modes: Team Deathmatch; King of the Hill; 1 Life 1V1 Shotgun TDM; 1v1 Sudden Death Gnashers Only; 4v4 TDM Single Round; and 4v4 KOTH Single Round.

    Was a remaster for a game released only a couple of years ago really needed?
    Did Gears play so bad, look so bad, whatever so bad up to today standards? (NO)
    ......
    Sad truth.

    EDIT: And yes, for an old grump 9 years is just a couple of years.

    I agree. But look at what naughty dog did with the last of us. A remastered of a game 2 yrs old?

    I do have to say, that the original Gears of War, which came out about 9 years ago, was a BUGGY freakin game.

    The campaign was full of graphical glitches, choppy framerates, and various game bugs, so a remaster would actually do the game wonders.

    I'll be honest here, like T-hug, Gears of War 2 was one of the most memorable experiences I had of the Xbox 360 era besides Halo 3.

    I can easily say that I'll pick up this remaster DAY ONE, just for the multiplayer, gears multiplayer is so cunningly competitive and is just outrageous fun.

    The Xbox Era is perfectly summed up by Blasting things in Halo, racing in forza, and Chainsawing your enemies to death in Gears of War, and I DEMAND to chainsaw everyone to death in 1080p, 60FPS.

    Not interested unless it comes to the PS4 or WiiU.
    I've already got it and finished it multiple times on the Xbox360 so its a PS4 or WiiU release or not interested.

    This generation is proving to be more of a rehash than newly developed games, then again, it's cheaper to remaster than produce an entirely new title. Still, not bad, it's great for people who missed out and they'll get a chance to play one of the best 360 games.

    lol

    I'd buy a trilogy remake for $60 but not a single game. This would have to be $20.
    If they add dedicated servers I'd pay $25.

    Black Tusk is making a new Gears game, this just wets our appetite. I wish it was a trilogy remake, I need horde in 60fps.

    This thing with "remasters" is getting ridiculous. I get it, it is much more profitable and fairly easy money, but come on... You have nothing to show 1 year and a half after release in order to attract gamers, and you are working on yet more "remasters"?

    Gaming is going downhill, fast...
