Let's hope for some benchmarks soon. Might buy this game. Price sounds okay and I hope Gears 4 comes to PC too. smile.gif

Is it exclusive to Windows 10 and the Windows Store?

Yes, Windows 10 and Windows Store exclusive. So no G-Sync or Free-Sync, borderless window mode only, capped at 60 fps and frames over 60 just get dropped (so no point in anyone benchmarking it), no ability for there to be mods, etc, etc (the list is long). I wonder who they will blame this time.

Editor's Note: More than half a year after its Xbox One release, Gears of War: Ultimate Edition has come to PC for Windows 10. And although the game's core is intact, complete with controls and level design that raised the bar for third-person shooters in 2006, the technical issues are far more pervasive on PC: we played on two different rigs, and both exhibited their own disparate problems.

Playing on an Nvidia GTX 980 Ti made Gears of War look gorgeous, with textured debris and iridescent lighting piercing the dust of Marcus Fenix's crumbling world. But the framerate is liable to dip extremely low, especially when enemies are more numerous. Playing on a GTX 970, on the other hand, runs much more smoothly, for whatever reason--but pop-in textures disrupt Gears of War's visual flow, while screen tearing disrupts your aiming during crucial firefights.

Microsoft informed us it's aware of some performance issues and is working on improved driver support--we'll reevaluate the game when the updates are instituted. When Gears of War: Ultimate Edition runs smoothly, it's worth playing--it set a precedent, 10 years ago, for third-person action games in its wake. But in the remaster's current technical state on PC, it's harder to recommend the trip home.

Ah, gotta love that clickbait. Its a driver issue for the Fury cards that is likely to be resolved soon.

I was going to link that :-/

But yes, that's why I stick to actual hardware review sites for this sort of stuff anyway biggrin.gif

Still a pity that it was released released before the optimized driver was, considering how clickbait headlines like that will no doubt reinforce the AMD strigma for some.

Is the ultimate edition just the very first GoW game or is it a bundle of them?

I'll pass then. Good to see PC getting some attention but when you buy it on Xbox One, you get the others included for free.

And for a limited time, when you play Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on Xbox Live, you’ll get the entire Xbox 360 Gears of War collection to play on Xbox One at no additional cost.
