If you purchased all the Gears of War titles back when Microsoft’s Xbox 360 was still the latest console, fret not, it’s all going to be okay.

On Monday, the company made a two-part announcement: first, that it’s remastering the original game for the Xbox One, its newest console; and second, that players who purchase and play the new version before the end of the year will be able to play the rest of the series on the console through the upcoming Backward Compatibility feature.

This will apply for players who purchase either Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, or the Xbox One Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Bundle, the company said.

Moreover, once they unlock the titles through Backward Compatibility, they’ll also have access to features such as Game DVR, Snap, and screenshots, and keep all their previously-saved files, game add-ons, achievements, and play with their friends regardless of which Xbox console they’re using.
