Rumor: Gears of War remaster coming to Xbox One. Multiplayer test build currently live

According to diverse pieces of information shared by Polygon during the last hours, a remaster of Gears of War is currently being developed for Xbox One.

The sources state that Gears of Wars remaster will feature updated visuals (improved lighting, increased texture quality, and 60 frames per second) and it’s being developed by Splash Damage, the studio behind games such as Brink or Dirty Bomb. Furthermore, the info points out that the cut scenes are being reworked by animation studio Plastic Wax.

If all that wasn’t enough, Polygon also reports that multiple people across the United States obtained access yesterday to a test build of “Gears of War” for Xbox One, which went live around 9 p.m EDT. This test build is multiplayer-only, featuring the following modes: Team Deathmatch; King of the Hill; 1 Life 1V1 Shotgun TDM; 1v1 Sudden Death Gnashers Only; 4v4 TDM Single Round; and 4v4 KOTH Single Round.
