Great job, Nate! I don't use dark theme so it looks great to me. I especially liked the links to the old OT's dating back to Gears 2. Nice touch!

Anyone needing a Horde partner should add me. I'll be on all weekend. GT: uno ill Nino

Would someone please clarify for me: I thought I read that if you order Gears 4 - in general, i.e., any edition - before 2017 you get the 360 collection regardless. OP says it doesn't come with the standard edition. So is it anytime before 2017 or would I need to preorder?

Thanks.

Edit: I see this has already been asked.

but that rodeo run camera shake kills me, I get motion sick. PLEASE tell me I can turn it off this time? I played through the first one years ago...just barely because of it.

I am really intrigued by this game; I haven't played a Gears game since Gears 2 and the quality of the PC port looks high. How meaty will the campaign be?

So those playing on PC, are you going mouse/keyboard or controller? I can't make up my mind. I usually go with mouse/keyboard for any shooter, but I'm so damn used to playing the Gears series with a controller.

Controller all the way. I play my FPS games with keyboard and mouse, but third person shooters work best on controllers. Also, Gears without a controller would feel "wrong"

Awesome, that sounds like the perfect length for this type of game. I will probably end up getting this, but do I need to know much of what happened in the older games? I only played the first 2 and that was a long time ago.

They've toned down the camera shake during roadie runs SIGNIFICANTLY and it looks great!

Hard to believe it has been 10 years since the first Gears of War. I have some of my best memories of playing with fellow GAFfers from those days that still rank among the best times on Xbox Live for me. Nostalgia has more to do with me wanting to play 4 than anything else. Truly wish Rod and everyone on GOW4 the very best!

Wow, almost 80 pages to get to the point where the game actually released. Gee, I miss those old OTs. Wait, I totally don't.

Playing the Gears remaster and Gears 2 over the past few nights has me really kinda jonesing for this.

Not nearly $100 jonesing, but if the reviews are decent I'll jump in quick.

Digital? If it's digital then yes.

Oh yeah I see it here available on 07/10/2016 awesome. One more question, if I buy an XB1 code (off cdkeys), do I enter it into Xbox.com and it should show up in my library on PC? Or do I need an XB1 console to activate it for PC? Not done the play anywhere thing yet.

Yeah... Hearing the Horizon horror stories will get to you especially with reports a 1080 couldn't hold 1080p/60 on that game.

Contact customer support and cancel your order and then order the ultimate edition.

I wonder when they'll add the ability to easily upgrade if you want.
