Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Now Available for Windows 10 PC

Announced at E3 2015, Microsoft has made good on bringing Gears of War: Ultimate Edition to Windows 10 PC. The game is available digitally via the Windows 10 Store. Just to reiterate for you dyed-in-wool PC gamers, it will not be coming to Steam or any other digital distribution service, something Microsoft's Head of Xbox Games Marketing, Aaron Greenberg stated earlier.

However Indian gamers can take solace at its price point. At Rs. 729 it's three times cheaper than what it costs on the US Windows 10 Store which has it for $29.99 (around Rs. 2035). Keep in mind though that it's a 52.76 GB download. Here's what you'll need to run it:

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition minimum requirements:

  • OS: 64 bit Windows 10 (v. 1511)
  • Processor: Intel Core i5 @ 2.7Ghz / AMD FX 6-core
  • Memory: 8GB RAM VRAM: 2GB
  • GPU: AMD R7 260x / NVIDIA GTX 650 Ti
  • HD Space: 60GB DirectX12

As per the store page, the above configuration is the "recommended system requirements for 1920X1080P", what this means is, you should ideally be able to play the game at full HD/1920x1080 at 60 frames per second without much trouble. There's a third configuration that's even steeper.

  • GPU: AMD R9 290X / NVIDIA GTX 970
  • HD Space: 60GB DirectX12

With a Windows PC of this calibre, the listing claims it is the "recommended system requirements for 4K", so hitting 3840x2160 at 60 frames per second should be of little worry.

Much like Quantum Break it appears that you'll need a superlative Windows PC to get the most out of it. Perplexing considering how underpowered the Xbox One is in comparison to the average gaming PC these days.
