Gears of War Ultimate Edition will be coming in early 2016


The PC version of Gears of War Ultimate edition will be launching on Windows 10 PC in 2016, which while vague does confirm that the game is still coming to PC. 

Phil Spencer in a recent tweet also confirmed that same thing applied to Killer Instinct will also be coming to PC in a similar timeframe, bringing the Free-To-Play fighter Reboot to the PC platform. 


Gears of War Community Team Tells Fans not to worry about the PC version  

Being one of the first DirectX 12 games and one of the first Xbox One titles getting ported to PC in DirectX12, so Microsoft will need to work hard here to build up their reputation for both their Published games and for their DirectX 12 API, as if this game doesn't perform well there will be a lot of negative hype for DX12. 

With no known release date or any other information being currently available the public will never know if the game is delayed or has any issues during the games development. It is likely that The Coalition, the games developers, are only planning to release further information on the PC version of the game closer to release, as they wish to avoid any of the issues which are associated with an over-hyped, over scrutinized game launch. 

Right now all that we know about the PC version of the game will include an Unlocked framerate, support DX12 Asynchronous compute, contain a built in benchmark and also sport the following features; 


  • - Remastered for Dolby 7.1 Surround
  • - New Xbox Live achievements (1,250 Gamerscore)
  • - Concept art gallery and unlockable comics
  • - Modernized Multiplayer featuring:
  • - Dedicated servers
  • - Skill-based matchmaking
  • - New game types – Team Deathmatch, King of the Hill (Gears of War 3 style), and new 2v2 Gnasher Execution
  • - Total of 19 maps, including all DLC maps
  • - 17 unlockable Gears of War 3 characters for Multiplayer progression
  • - More Match customization including Actives, Respawn Time, Self-revive and Weapon Respawn
  • - Modernized gameplay with smoother movement and updated controls:
  • - Alternate Controls and all new Tournament Controls
  • - Adding the Gears of War 3 features you love: Enemy Spotting, Multiplayer Tac-Com, Improved sensitivity customization

I hope so. I'm starting to run out of quests on Fallout 4 now and after about ten hours of just wandering around aimlessly I have nearly uncovered all of the locations and explored most of them.

Strangely I won't be giving it another playthrough. Well, at least not any time soon so I am hoping on Tomb Raider and this GOW to keep me going through the winter months (seeing as Mirror's Edge 2 seems to have gone for a burton).Quote
