Playdate: Taking Stock Of 'gears Of War: Ultimate Edition'

Gears of War practically defined the Xbox 360. And as is the recent trend demands, it's getting a fancy schmancy remaster that runs at 1080p and 60 frames per second. Gears of War: Ultimate Edition is the first project from the new Gears studio, The Coalition, and it worked as a sort of training exercise for the team to learn what the series means before shipping Gears of War 4. So what's that mean for you and me? Well, that today starting at 6 pm ET / 3 pm PT we're going to broadcast two hours of Ultimate Edition on Twitch. Perhaps best of all, we've got a special surprise for you: Microsoft has given us a custom white Xbox One adorned with Gears of War graphics. Want in? All you have to do is enter below.



So! Join us this afternoon on the Engadget Gaming homepage, this very post or twitch.tv/joystiq as myself and Sean Buckley work our way through the opening bits of the campaign, live on the internet.

[We're streaming Gears of War: Ultimate Edition via OBS at 720p, which is to say it's going to look an awful lot better on your TV and in your house.]
