Gears of War: Ultimate Edition gets performance patch

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.

      I have to control myself not to buy this, I love GoW. But the store and the game need to be fixed first.
