During the PC Gaming conference at E3, The Coalition Studio head Rod Fergusson announced that Gears of War: Ultimate Edition is coming to PC
More people to experience this excellent game.
I have to agree. Smart move by MS. Now I can finally try Gears for the first time on PC. Loving the PC support.
Will PC gamers also get to play Gears 4 Beta? if so, that would be a good indication of it releasing also on PC.
GeoW still has the best commercial https://www.youtube.com/wat... glad i'll finally get to enjoy the series bug free (fingers crossed) on PC.
Its not the first time, i have made a utube video of gesrs of war one. But still, its an awsome game so im looking forward to try this enhanced version on pc.
This could be an strategic move. Port Gears Remaster to PC, so people who haven't played it try it and create potentially XBO buyers when GEoW4 releases.
@GMR and Tim I agree with you guys. I really don't see console gamers abandoning consoles for PC and same for PC gamers. PC gamers love their PC's& both platforms aren't in direct competition with each other.that's why SF5 is on PC ,its why most major western&eastern game publishers are bringing their games to PC too .MS plan is to expand its userbase and generate more revenue, this in turn should help the Xbox Division and fuel even more investment into Windows and Xbox exclusive projects.at first this might seem like a bad idea but in the long run it benefits us all(windows&xbox gamers).there will still be certain games exclusive to each platform and with a bigger userbase, we'll get more exclusives across both platforms and gamers like Natureoflogic who keep talking about playing Xbox games on PC would actually be helping MS achieve this cos that's the audience MS is gunning for right now. In the end it benefits us all.MS invests more into gaming, creates new studios, new windows&xbox exclusives and also crossplay and crossbuy would be added benefits.
Um... Gears 1 was on PC already.
original Gears of war was also released on PC, so this makes sense.
Was a surprise, such a calm announcement too
Lol, the one for Killer Instinct was calmer, Phil Spencer did it basically off handedly. He was so off-handed and natural about it that I was like "wait, is this new?" He seemed to be talking about something everyone already knew about.
Awesome, considering the original was on PC but was hindered by GFWL this will be a nice treat.
This PC version will spruce up the resolution to 4K with an unlimited refresh rate and DX12 support. When asked about Gears of War 4, he said he had nothing to announce yet. The keyword being "yet". - http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
I thought he said Gears of War franchise, and what would it seem like if he straight up said no we won't have anything else for you. That would of ruin the moment imo.
If they release Gears 4 on PC also simultaneously, that would make it clear that MS will not be releasing a new Xbox, since this would be killing it.
No, I think it would mean that the next X1 will be an an Xbox branded, gaming only PC. Developers wouldn't have to make work as hard to make ports, but would be able to simply optimize their PC code to a single spec.. This is all about getting PC gamers to use the Xbox store so that they can lure publishers to it.
There are PC gamers still waiting for Gears 2 & 3, also for Halo 3 to "finish the fight"
@ivanspinal I don't know especially with Phil Spencer in charge now. He has brought a good amount of Xbox One exclusives to PC. He did say that he will not abandon PC anymore and will do his best to support the platform starting with Windows 10. Ryse Dead Rising 3 Fable Legends Spark Titanfall and now Gears of War Ultimate
Going to be shiny. Gears 4 should tag along to PC too. Get it to 4K
It will in a year or so after release.
Works for me. I got other PC games in 2015 for the meantime
My PC+PS4 combo is making me happy.
Yup... My pc will let me play sf v, shenmue 3, ff 7
Same, it's clearly the definitive way to game this gen.
How do you get in on the Gears 1 beta? I haven't gotten a message or anything.

Is stupid because pc gamers just pirate the games there is Tons of ways to pirate games on the web and that's what is going to happen and is just going to deminish the value of the game. And I am generalizing pc gamers I apologize but you know most of you pirate games because free stuff is always better than paying for it. Not me though I own a ps4 and Xbox one and it posses me off that the ips that made Xbox like gears is being made for pc to that is how Xbox is loosing it's identety. By the way I thought Xbox had a way better e3 than Sony because a lot of the games Sony showed didn't interest me excluding uncharted I wanted a God of war so bad but having said that I love Xbox and just don't agree with what they are doing I feel like they are gonna kill the Xbox and move all the I ips to pc with time. Witch I hope not
Microsoft is back into PC! Good time to be an everything gamer. BTW Witcher 3 is tits!
what new AAA games were announced at the PC e3 conference i missed it
Nice which version to get been playing the beta and it looks stunning hope it is cross buy one version gains you the other.
Wait...so it's just an upgraded version of Gears 1?
I wish they'd release the other games. The first is already available.
Phew! Almost felt the need to buy an Xone.
