Gears of War: Ultimate Edition will include the entire Xbox 360 Gears series, running on Xbox One via backwards compatibility.

The offer will give players access to the 360 versions of Gears 1-3 and Judgment on Xbox Live, and will be redeemable between August 25 and December 31.

Though the Ultimate Edition of the original game is a remastered version, the classic games are not.

In addition, players who already own the older Gears games will be able to play on Xbox One via backwards compatibility when the Ultimate Edition launches.

Those players will retain their save games, add-ons, and achievements, and will be able to play on Xbox Live cross-generation.

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition launches August 25 for Xbox One.
