    Gears of War: Ultimate Edition didn’t do wonders promoting the Windows 10 Store or DirectX 12, but developers the Coalition released a new patch today which hopefully addresses some of the more serious technical issues. “Performance optimisations” is top of the change-log list, and early reports suggest AMD’s Fury X card is seeing improvements.

    Here’s what the 2.3GB update is bringing:

    • Performance optimizations.
    • Refactor of texture settings to better reflect VRAM requirements and to better manage the texture levels for each setting.
    • Ambient Occlusion tweaks (visual adjustments on our end).
    • Tuned mouse coming out of roadie run.
    • Disabled mouse smoothing.

    It’s also noted that the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition team have “scaled down playlists to help with matchmaking times”. A new playlist rotation should now be in effect, which you can read about via the patch link above.

    Further updates are still very much planned, and a summary of what’s coming up can be read in this other thread on the Coalition forums. They’re looking to address things like the forced v-sync lock, NAT issues, Field of View customisation, and looking into various other multiplayer suggestions like custom lobby lists and population indicators.
