Gears of War Ultimate Edition Is 7 Times Bigger Than the Original

Gears of War Ultimate Edition is one of the releases headlining what Microsoft is calling “the greatest games lineup in Xbox history.” It’s a remaster of 2006’s Gears of War – an Xbox 360 game that made its way to PC in 2007.

Like most remasters nowadays, it features a slew of technological advances and extra content. All of this goodness however, will cost you. And no, not in terms of pricing. While the game is yet to receive a price in India, it’s priced at $39.99 in the US.

Rather, the size of the game is on the higher side at 44.42GB if a listing on the Xbox Games Store is to be believed. While that might seem on par with most current generation releases, it’s surprisingly huge for a game that at debut was a mere 6.27GB, making it nearly seven times bigger.

Nonetheless, following a promising multiplayer beta after E3 2015 and with a release on August 25, die-hard fans of the series have something to look forward to.
