Gears of War 4's May update will add Multi-GPU support to the game

 
The Coalition has announced that Gears of War 4's May update will be adding Multi-GPU support to the game's PC version. This update will be arriving on the Windows 10 store later today and will also be adding two new maps to the game. 
 
The first of these two new maps is Security, a popular Gears of War 2 map that has been recreated for Gears of War 4, with the second map being a whole new creation called Dawn, which is modelled after an outsider village. 

  

We are excited to announce that Multi-GPU support arrives with the May Update for our Windows 10 players! Our Windows 10 team have been hard at work implementing support for users who use multiple graphics card setups, and now fans can take full advantage of their setup to really push the stunning visuals of Gears of War 4.

 

 

With Gear of War 4 being such a demanding PC release, especially at high resolutions, it is great to see that the Coalition has finally implemented multi-GPU support, making high framerates at increased resolutions all the more feasible.

Better late than never, but another show of disregard, IMO.

I'd buy this if it wasn't so expensive.Quote

Better late than never. TBH this is probably the best made UWP game to date and the best case that MS has made for the Windows 10 Store's gaming presence so far.

I wouldn't call this a "show of disregard", they didn't need to release this update and it must be remembered that this time last year that UWP games did not support unlocked framerates, nevermind multi-GPU.

I think this is actually the first UWP game to support Multi-GPU, which is huge progress. A sure sign that MS is taking things much more seriously than they were previously when it comes to PC.Quote

They've also released a dual GPU update for Forza haven't they?

The key to multi GPU is day one. Who wants to pay £50 for a game that doesn't work only to find it's worth half that months later?

Some games don't matter because they're single player so you can afford to wait. Some are online and time sensitive (who wants to play a game alone when their mates have all completed it?) So need support on day one.

I'm not going to pat a company on the back for coding in multi GPU support many months after the launch on a £50 game, sorry.Quote

Well there is nothing wrong with the GPU scaling.
