Yesterday, Xbox revealed that playing Gears of War Ultimate Edition through Xbox Live from launch day until the end of the year will grant users all four previous Gears of War titles for free through backwards compatibility.

Xbox One backwards compatibility was announced at E3 2015. Xbox One Preview members currently have access to a range of Xbox Live Arcade titles to help Microsoft test the service before launch.
