E3: Gears of War HD Gameplay

E3: Gears of War HD Gameplay

New videos from the showfloor with Gears of War: Ultimate Edition. The facelift looks good and should give the desire to play to all players of the license.

Nothing from the campaign?
Interested whether or not it looks better graphically.

On the official website 60fps is kind of pointed out as a "multiplayer feature", so I'm starting to wonder if perhaps the campaign is running at a lower framerate in exchange for more graphical finesse. How knows?

I have no idea about 60fps in SP, now you got me thinking.

Nah, I don't really think it looks amazing. The thing is that it doesn't stay true to the original, its like it lost all of its atmosphere and now looks like alot of other games :P :(

How do you know have you played it? It might be better to check impressions from those there at E3 that have played it. in my opinion it looks great even digital foundry that is biased towards the console said it looks good.

I've played the beta, so yeah. I'm not saying it's bad but I don't like how some remasters tend to change TOO much in ways that affects the overall mood and atmosphere. Gears 1 was gritty and dramatic in its visual style and should stay that way.

Anyway, here's some campaign footage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WEmaL7MCb74

There're better ones but just one example is the footage from the dark rainy level, it's much less rain than in the original game. That sort of changes just don't make new sense.
Entirely new lighting conditions that gives a whole other (sometimes not as "dramatic") vibe could be the biggest problem though, from a few side-by-side screenshots I've seen.

With that said I'm still very hyped, more so for the campaign than multiplayer :)

Didn't they said something in the lines they ported the PC version that also had a different story line and a Brumak battle , but based all on Gears 3 assets

    Megido It's fascinating how Nintendo always make like 3 copies of everything, especially when it's super in demand. (3 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX They need to do a better job at meeting demand too. How are people supposed to keep interest in a thing they can't buy? (3 Hours ago)
