Gears of War

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition is imbibing a lot of the later Gears of War games into itself, injecting the first game in the franchise with the better storytelling sensibilities and mechanics that came with the later games in the series. So it wasn’t all that unreasonable to expect that the series’ famed Horde Mode would be included in the Ultimate Edition too, even though the original Gears of War itself never had it (Horde Mode was introduced with 2008’s Gears of War 2).

However, speaking at San Diego Comic Con during their panel today, The Coalition confirmed that Horde Mode would not be included in Gears of War Ultimate Edition- which is sure to come as a disappointment to the millions of players who are still playing it to this day. Personally, I know that most of my play time for Gears of War 2 comes from Horde.

At least The Coalition have a good reason for not including the mode, though. According to Fergusson, Gears 2 introduced a variety of new enemy types and without those different enemies in the first game, Horde Mode would feel super limited by comparison. So, it makes sense, I guess.

Just bring it back for Gears of War 4.

    That’s sad but understandable but at the same time aren’t they bringing characters from the other games that will be playable in multiplayer? So the statement “new enemy types and without those different enemies in the first game, Horde Mode would feel super limited by comparison” is a little flawed. Regardless the game will be fun to play.

    Why would it? Horde wasn’t part of gears 1 so it wouldn’t be part of this. This is a visual update with some small tweaks to improve gameplay. It’s not a remake. The visual update is quite substantial too. It’s not just rendering at a higher resolution like god of war or last of us. They went in and re did the cinematics, they increased frames of animation, boosted the poly count on the character models changed the textures and doubled the frame rate. A significant upgrade all around. can’t wait.

    I was not expecting horde mode anyway… That said it would make for a nice DLC, because with Gears 4 coming next year I don’t see a remaster of 2 and 3 coming anytime soon.
