E3 2015: Gears of War: Ultimate Edition bound for PC

The Coalition's Gears of War: Ultimate Edition HD remaster is also coming to PC, according studio head Rod Fergusson. The announcement came from the PC Gaming Show at E3 yesterday.

An HD remaster of the first Gears title, the game arrives on Xbox One August 25 this year, the game's 10th anniversary. The PC version will support 4K res, DirectX 12, unlimited refresh rate and a few extra visual upgrades over the Xbone version.

"(The) difference between the original to the remastered (version) is that we rebuilt everything from the ground up," said Fergusson. No release date for the PC version has been announced at this time.
