Gears Of War: Ultimate Edition Out Now For Windows 10

Calling all Coalition of Ordered Governmentalists: Gears of War has returned to PC. Gears Of War: Ultimate Edition [official site] is out now for Windows 10 via the Windows Store, remastering the virgin voyage of Marcus Fenix and friends. The seminal third-person shooter has been rebuilt in full 2016-o-vision, and comes to PC even fancier than the Xbox One version. You’ve never seen such high-definition waist-high concrete blocks to hunker behind.

The Ultimate Edition came out on Xbox One in August, but the PC port boasts unlocked frame rates for both single and multiplayer campaigns, support for 2160p resolutions and DirectX 12, and all that. The Coalition, the studio who have taken over the series created by Epic Games, say they’re also working on implementing DirectX 12’s Multiadapter feature, which lets a PC push pixels faster through multiple video cards like SLI or CrossFire – but without needing matching cards.

As for the game itself, the Ultimate Edition includes five new campaign missions absent from the original 360 version – now ten years old, can you believe? – all of the original 360 DLC multiplayer maps, and new multiplayer modes.

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition is out now for Windows 10 and costs £22.79/$29.99 on the Windows Store.

Here’s a look at one of the new chapters running on PC:
