Footage from the rumored Gears of War remaster seems to have leaked onto the internet.
Thanks to Twitter user Wario64, the video has been uploaded to YouTube, seeing as the original videos were removed quickly. While this isn’t confirmed to be entirely real Gears of War footage, it sure does look convincing.
Just in case the off-camera footage of Gears of War on Xbox One is pulled from YouTube, the folks over at MP1st have thankfully taken some screenshots just in case the video is pulled. The videos and screenshots certainly look legit, however, unless someone has really worked hard to produce an extremely good fake.
The footage shows Marcus Fenix, the game’s protagonist, lobbing a few grenades at the ground, as well as performing a signature Gears of War hallmark: the Roadie Run. Even the offscreen footage looks smooth, showing some of the improvements made to Gears of War thanks to getting the remaster treatment.
Gears of War is one of the pillars of the Xbox console family since it’s original debut in 2006, so a remaster is a no-brainer. Rumored to be just a remaster of the first Gears of War title to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the game’s release, the game is rumored to run at 1080p, 60 frames-per-second.
As of the release of this article, one of the videos is still available in its raw form, but don’t expect it to be there too long. Normally with leaks, especially with a game of this magnitude, damage control kicks in pretty quickly. This was most recently seen with Mirada Studios trying to cover up reports of a Fallout 4 trailer in the works.
According to VG247, the Gears of War remaster is rumored to be called Gears of War: Ultimate Edition thanks to a ratings report. With all of the leaks recently, it would be no surprise to see Microsoft officially announce this at E3 2015 and put rumors to rest. This is in line with what the company did last year with Halo: The Master Chief Collection last year after rumors leaked its existence.
While Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, as it might be called, may make its formal debut at E3 2015, expect to see some of what Black Tusk Studios is working on for the future of the franchise as well at the industry conference.
