Gears Of War: Ultimate Edition is one of the most anticipated remasters of the last decade, and it’s looks beautiful.

We have finally been blessed with a sneak peek at some of the improved graphics available in Gears Of War: Ultimate Edition, and they don’t fail to impress. A new video has surfaced on the official Gears Of War YouTube channel, which shows off different environments in the game in their new glory.

The minds behind the remaster spend a long time talking about their ‘destroyed beauty.’ A form of aesthetic design which attempts to make something look breathtaking, and at the same time harrowing. Gears Of War has this in spades, the feeling of awe and dread all at once; how one can be blown away by a decrepit building. These environments are enhanced on the more powerful Xbox One, and we can’t wait to see the full game.

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition releases exclusively on the Xbox One on August 25th.

Troy Baker has spoken about his return to the role of Joel in Naughty Dog’s upcoming title The Last of Us Part II.

During an exclusive interview with OnlySP at Supanova Comic Con & Gaming, Baker was asked how he felt to return to the role alongside Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie in the sequel to the acclaimed 2013 title.

“The first day we were on set was when we shot [the PSX reveal] trailer,” Baker revealed. “We go through rehearsals and stuff, and we walk through it, and things get real serious all of a sudden, when we heard both of our voices. When you put everything together, that’s when Ashley goes away and Troy goes away, and you’re left with Ellie and Joel.”

Baker noted that the first time creative director Neil Druckmann spoke to him about the potential of a sequel was during the British Academy Video Game Awards in March 2014.

Check out a clip from our exclusive interview with Troy Baker and Nolan North—including the revelation of North’s return as David and the significant musical numbers featured in the game—above, and stay tuned for the full interview.

Druckmann recently revealed that Baker and Johnson had completed their main work on the game, describing it as “the most ambitious cinematic shoot we’ve ever done.” Before that, he stated that the final scene of The Last of Us Part II has been shot, with Laura Bailey recently completing her performance capture for the title. Druckmann also revealed that the rapper Logic and actor Travis Willingham will also be appearing in the game.

Earlier this month, a screen of the game’s weapon upgrade system was leaked in a promotional video, with some noting that weapon variation may be present in the game’s revision of combat.
