It’s a Mad World: Gears of War Ultimate Edition trailer

Gears of War Ultimate Edition is out on Xbox One later this month, but Xbox want to create lots of feels and emotion right now with its new trailer which uses Gary Jule’s fantastic Mad World song as the accompanying soundtrack.

Now, the new trailer isn’t a direct recreation of the trailer Microsoft produced for the original, Xbox 360 version of the game but its opening footage is from the original game – it them kicks into the new, shiny updated version.

While I still think the original Xbox 360 trailer is the better of the two at creating an emotional bond with the gamer, you can’t deny that GOW Ultimate Edition is looking pretty sharp.

It’s hard to believe, too, that the original Gears of War came out 10 years ago, in 2005. That’s like a lifetime in video games, isn’t it?
