I imagined anything published there would be subjected to M$'s retarded arbitrary rules, but that's a new low. Some people really have no standards.

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.

I believe in many cases it isn't even about optimization (this word seems to be misused sometimes), it's due to terrible programming and not conforming to standards.

yeah GOW2 + 3 never were on PC so they can't really give it to us biggrin.gif

Would love to have GOW2+3 too, but I'd take Gears 4 any day of the week over all previous Gears games

If it does have split screen co-op I'm buying for sure biggrin.gif

It probably has to something with having to download the language packs for the entire world lol.

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.

This is turning out to be bigger PC gaming launch fail than Batman AK.

Any website benchmarking this game? rolleyes.gif

The state in which the games are released these days is terrible. You wonder if they test it at all. If they test it, do they use only a few different systems...

I just prefer to wait 2-3 months after the release and then play.

G-Sync™ Enabled Monitors
G-Sync™ is not supported by Gears of War: Ultimate Edition for Windows 10. Running the Game with G-Sync™ enabled will cause significant performance issues. If you are using a G-Sync™ enabled monitor, you should disable it from the NVIDIA Control Panel. Alternatively, you can set Lock Framerate to OFF in the Video settings. Please visit NVIDIA support pages for the latest on NVIDIA drivers and software.

Hi MS, when we said we wanted console exclusives ported to PC, we didn't want you to keep them in their consolized state.
