Rod Fergusson, the Studio Head at The Coalition, dropped by the first-ever PC Gaming Show on Tuesday to announce that the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition is also in development for the PC. According to Fergusson, PC gamers can look forward to playing the remastered version of Gears at 4K resolution with an unlimited refresh rate. The game will also include DirectX 12 support for a smoother experience. Finally, mouse and keyboard control will be implemented alongside the standard allotment of Xbox controllers (Xbox 360, Xbox One, and the brand new Xbox One Elite).
Gears of War was originally released for the PC back in 2007, however, all three sequels remained exclusive to the Xbox 360. But when asked if PC gamers should gear up for future Gears of War releases on the platform, Fergusson sounded hopeful: “Nothing to announce yet. That’s something I’ll be happy to talk about at a later time.”
The remastered shooter will be available for the Xbox One on August 25, but a release date for Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on the PC has yet to be confirmed.
