Rod Fergusson pitched up at the PC Gaming Show and announced that Gears of War: Ultimate Edition would be getting a PC release alongside the Xbox One version.
On the one hand, it’s fairly nice to hear that the PC will get a “visually enhanced” version of Gears of War with some DirectX 12 support and other unspecified bells and whistles. But on the other, it’s a bit of a shame that the one ‘remastered’ Gears of War we get on PC is the one that was already released on this platform.
Still, hey, this is fine news for those who want a fancier version of Gears of War on PC.
Fergusson mentioned a couple of extra things of interest about Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, mentioning that it’ll come with 19 multiplayer maps and “a bunch of new modes.” No expansion on what those new modes would be, though.
We’ll no doubt hear more specifics about the PC version of this at a later date. I suppose there’s also a chance that this is testing the waters for a possible Gears of War 4 PC release, but that’s purely speculation on my part.
