Gears of War: Ultimate Edition is due to arrive on Xbox One on Aug. 25. In the meantime, here's the game's introductory sequence (above), which shows the Locust Horde's arrival, what happens next, and how chainsaw-guns figure in the whole thing.

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, announced at E3 and developed by The Coalition, is a major reworking of the first Gears of War, replacing art assets, tweaking gameplay mechanics and adding new chapters to the ten-year-old game.

Pre-order online pages are available detailing a Standard Edition priced at $39.99 and a Deluxe Edition, which comes with extra skins and multiplayer characters. It costs $59.99.

Buyers of the game will also gain access to a Gears of War 4 beta sometime in 2016. A PC version of Ultimate Edition has been announced, but no release date has been confirmed.
