Experience the game that launched one of the most celebrated sagas in entertainment with Gears of War: Ultimate Edition. The shooter that defined the first generation of HD gaming has been rebuilt in 1080P and modernized for Xbox One, and is packed full of new content including five campaign chapters never released on Xbox.
A horrific subterranean species called the Locust have emerged from the ground of planet Sera and are waging war against mankind. In the immediate aftermath of Emergence Day, the fate of the world rests on the shoulders of a young Lieutenant, Damon Baird, and his team – Kilo Squad. With everything on the line, Kilo must defy orders to save their besieged world from a horrifying new enemy.
The last major city on Sera has been destroyed and its survivors scattered. In mankind’s darkest hour a new threat arises – a mutated, infected enemy called the Lambent that is consuming both Locust and human alike. Time is running out for Delta Squad to save what is left of Sera in this spectacular conclusion to one of the most celebrated sagas in video games.
Winter approaches and war against the Locust rages on. Entire cities are sinking, swallowed by a new threat from below. Soon humanity will have nothing left to defend. Only one option remains – Delta Squad, led by Marcus Fenix, must make an all-out attack deep within the earth of Sera, striking the heart of the Locust Horde in their stronghold called the Hollow.
The planet Sera lies in ruin. The Locust Horde has risen, and they won’t stop coming. The Coalition of Ordered Governments (COG) is desperate for soldiers. The wounded and the imprisoned are all that remain. A prisoner and former war hero named Marcus Fenix is charged with keeping humanity alive. He can take comfort in but one fact: the human race isn’t extinct. Yet.
