At Microsoft's E3 press conference today, the company revealed a remastered version of the 2006 original Gears of War. Dubbed the Ultimate Edition, the new version of the game comes with improved graphics, as it runs at 1080p/60fps, producer Rod Fergusson said on stage at Microsoft's briefing.

Starting later today, Xbox One owners with an Xbox Live Gold subscription can play a beta for the game.

Meanwhile, Microsoft is also working on a brand new Gears of War game called Gears of War 4. That game is in development at Black Tusk The Coalition.

The announcement of Gears of War Ultimate Edition confirms what months of leaks have all but confirmed. In October 2014, Xbox head Phil Spencer sparked hopes of a remake when he retweeted a comment about a "Marcus Fenix Collection." In March, The Coalition denied a remade collection, but teased Gears of War news to come. In April, Gears of War HD footage leaked, all but confirming the remaster.
