The Coalition talked about the PC version of Gears of War Ultimate. DirectX 12 & Async Compute will be used, 4K is also fully supported.
Good. I'm not exactly anal about frame rate but there's never any need to have it locked. This isn't a console, this is a PC. if it can run it with a higher frame rate, let it.
Absolutely true, I don't understand those devs who do it. Hyped to play this game remastered and at 4K/60+ FPS.
I will pick this one up on PC also. I have it on XBONE but would love to also play on PC with friends.
The Xbox One version looks great. The PC version will be best.
As always. The Master Race rules supreme!
No not ALWAYS! Remember Batman Arkham Knight?
Arkham Knight is best on PC though. It was released broken (and still isn't up for sale), but with the interim patch it's already the best looking version of the game. You need to look to obscure dynasty warrior games and such to find games that are actually better on console.
I agree volkama the best version is the one that doesn't work.... good thinking ace. Promote this man at once!
I can launch it right now and play at 4K. Can you? I don't really want to sling mud and shout "PC master race!" at mature gamers, but Arkham Knight isn't a great example to counter with. Not anymore, and certainly not after Rocksteady finish their work on it.
lol @Volk- I get what you mean, it just sounded very wrong. The best version is PC by default I'll say most times, some times its the worst version. If it has soooooooo many bugs its unplayable, then yes....its the worst version. Batman can BE the best version on PC, but that remains to be seen. I would say "eventually" or its possible to be the best on PC etc. XboxOneX is very correct, no always.
I have a monster PC that will be able to run this game 4k 60fps + (I use it for work) but I'll still play GoW on xbox one. Just more fun.
Will have to check this out on PC!
Gears of war always looked great. Even on the xbox 360. Great game. Single player blew me away. Never played anything like that at the time. Seen it on my nephews Xbox one and it looked even better.
Didn't we all decide a long time ago that GoW was God of War and Gears was Gears of War?
GoW= God of War GeOW= Gears of War, i think. Either that or make up your own. If your an Xbox fan I dont see where using GoW is a bad thing. Seeing as its a Gears article you should know which GoW it is.
Agreed. Around N4G, we started using GOW for God of War and GeOW for Gears of War, so we could use the shorthand when arguing about petty things. This was 2006. No bubbles. It was a warzone in here.
@wearelegion Thats funny because its true, and a little sad as well.
if GeOW=Gears Of War, then GoOW=God Of War.
No because gears is a lot better than god of war so it should take precedent over it ;)
How can someone even make that claim? They're completely different types of games. Both series' are incredible.
No, it was always GoW for both games, considering the abbreviation for both games is correct that way. If you want to create an exclusive list for boasting, you simply use the full name.
lol. In article about Gears Of War....we all know what GoW is. Its just based on in what context one is using it.
I envy you PC guys. Really!! I always say Im gonna build a rig but never get around to it. Maybe a nice winter project. We'll see...anyways enjoy Gears at 4K and like 300fps.
Do it. PC gaming is so great right now! It's never been better.
I want to badly. I love gaming on my laptop but I think my dilemma would be not being able to be portable for PC gaming :-/ I would love to travel with it.
You can build a laptop, its harder but you could do it. Mini ATX tower could make it easier to travel with.
Very nice. Announce a release date already.
Never got the fuss over framerates, looks like the same to me at around 30+ but if you have can better and want better its nice theyre letting you...
If you can't tell the difference between 60 and 30 there's something wrong with your eyes
If you've got both consoles, go on Forza6 demo for eg, then go on Driveclub & it will seem like a slideshow. There's a huge difference.
Ohh lucky PC owners. They will get 60 fps in campaign while on Xbox One it is 30 fps and some parts even lower than 30 fps.
I'm playing through it right now and I was pretty disappointed to find it wasn't running at 60fps. I'll get the PC version when it hits and trade the X1 version.
Best do it before hand. Trade value drops drastically when a pc port is released. With the pirating and what not.
Bought the Xbox version for multiplayer. Still hoping it turns out to be cross-buy so I don't have to re-buy the PC version.
Im getting disagrees when I state the fact. Have Gears UE on X1. It is 30 fps or sometimes lower in campaign and 60 fps in multiplayer. This site has to do something agree/disagree system or remove it entirely.
I agree with that. The disagree system on here is ridiculous. If you say ANYTHING you get disagreed with. "I liked the first Gears of War." DISAGREE! Just my totally unbiased, non-fanboy opinion.
Nice. One of the few times I envy PC gaming.
Sweet will double dip again.
Awesome! As i'm getting the game bundled with my Forza 6 console in a couple days, I'll be definitely trying it out on both platforms. Cannot wait!
I loved Gears back in the day but having just finished a playthrough I have to say, I felt it has aged quite badly both in gameplay and tone. You have to give it credit for changing the way 3rd person action games played but things have definitely moved on a lot.
GoW=God of War this is not god of war...
So I guess this won't run on anything other than Win 10? Will it run on 7 with less detail etc ? To add ... I thought the PS/XBox fanboys where little brats.. check out the NVidia/AMD fanboy comments on the article page.. Hilarious.
I would be surprised if it doesn't have some fallback.
Hope it does play nice on 7... Don't want to upgrade to that data mining POS called 10.
I wish I had to keep waiting long for my games so I can call myself PC master race. Oh wait I could do because I own a gaming PC, I just choose not to.
