Xbox’s official YouTube account just uploaded the opening cinematic for Gears of War: Ultimate Edition. The original Gears of War aged well; however, it has never looked more beautiful.

Coming August 25th to the Xbox One with a slew of new content, Gears of War: Ultimate Edition is looking to modernize the very game that started it all for the franchise. Here’s just a snippet of new additions to look forward to:

  • Remastered for Dolby 7.1 Surround
  • 90 mins of new campaign content from the original PC game
  • New Xbox Live achievements (1,250 Gamerscore)
  • Concept art gallery and unlockable comics
  • A myriad of inclusions for multiplayer

Read the full list of changes here.

Polish is not a foreign concept to developer The Coalition (formerly known as Black Tusk Studios); if the new content is even half as solid as the opening cinematic, disappointment will be hard to come by come late August.
