An Xbox One Gears of War hardware bundle is on the way

Microsoft has announced that a Gears of War Ultimate Edition and Xbox One hardware bundle is coming out.

Interestingly the package launches on week before the title hits stores. It'll be in stores on August 21st, with the game not being available until August 28th.

Consumers will not be able to play the game ahead of launch. Microsoft suggests that gamers use this week period to pre-install the game ready for launch day. Given that the game is said to weigh in at a hefty 44GB, fans might need this time.

The bundle will set consumers back 309.99, and includes the 500GB console, alongside a digital copy of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition. That's on top of early beta access for Gears 4, and a two-week Xbox Live Gold trial.

The long-rumoured Xbox One Gears of War remake was announced on-stage by Microsoft at E3.
