Ukrainian trick doesn't work anymore. I bought TR that way but no luck with this.
I just changed my region to Russia and my Russian credit showed up (Its 999 Rubles which is about £10), just buy the credit the way its done for XB1 and get it that way.

So it's DX12's fault? This whole this is such a headache.
At the moment, yes. But the implementation of Vsync as per DX12, currently, is targetted to never have Vsync really off.

A mod very nicely changed the title to that thread. Someone should bump it IMO regarding the limitations in the current Gears win10 release.

Microsoft's DX12 plans to limit standard PC user control options (PcPer)

I am curious, how does Vsync off work in the current Gears release? Does it work at all? Probably not.

So for a newbie, what's in this package exactly? How good is the game? Never played Gears.

Would you recommend it to a PC gamer?

No cross buy? WTF

I do not like how they keep talking about Windows as a unified platform and release games as of they are on different platforms.

I'm not buying this again.

Has there been any information on the possibility of the W10 games hitting the physical shelves?

How is a driver from Nvidia going to make G-sync work with this?

Isn't the issue that Windows Store apps are V-sync locked? Unless the Nvidia patch addresses THAT, I don't see how the issue is on their end.

Unless you mean by fix, the patch will allow G-sync to simply turn itself off when the game runs, which isn't a fix. A fix is making G-sync WORK with the game.

I love how Microsoft's regional stores work.
They added my region's currency (argentine pesos) but didn't add local credit card support or paypal. They they try to charge me the equivalent of 46 dollars for something that costs $30 in the US.

Yeah, I think you can keep your Gears, Microsoft.

This is one of my favorite MP shooters ever, by far! But it's of course a Universal App isn't it? It's not releasing anywhere but the Windows store? I REALLY want to play this again but not through GFWL 2.0

G-Sync™ is not supported by Gears of War: Ultimate Edition for Windows 10. Running the Game with G-Sync™ enabled will cause significant performance issues. If you are using a G-Sync™ enabled monitor, you should disable it from the NVIDIA Control Panel. Alternatively, you can set Lock Framerate to OFF in the Video settings. Please visit NVIDIA support pages for the latest on NVIDIA drivers and software.


Ugh.... Count me out.
Wait is that for real. It does not support G-Sync?

I'm already soured on this. Purchased the game but cannot download it. I got better things to do and if they won't let me download it soon I'm just going to refund it and not bother with the Windows Store going forward.


So much potential but of course they can't do their part.

No G-Sync = no buy. Sorry Coalition.

Also the cross play issue, while I understand the reasons, considering this is an old remastered game and already population wont be huge, not doing crossplay will have community dead in a couple of weeks.

It works perfectly fine with slower paced games like Gears. Worked beautifully w/ Blacklist SvM. Obviously doesn't work with CS: GO, TF2, twitch shooters, etc.
Gears is not slow paced with all the shotty wall bouncing.

If you NEVER played any Gears, go grab it. It's still one of the best 3rd person shooter ever made, now with simply better graphics for PC.

It's not the original game.
....clearly? So its the ultimate edition. Improved textures/lighting, 1080p and 60fps. Other than that it's still an old game that should be crushed by modern PC hardware.

I've seen some insane footage of the games that say otherwise. Even if those particular videos were on the extreme end of the skill scale, there are still varying degrees below that would benefit from mouse input.

Could you elaborate this a little bit more, since I'm looking to buy it that way, do you just buy some store credits, and then change the region of the store?

Ugh. Windows 10 only? How long until that can be bypassed 😿
Except Windows 10 is worth it. Update.

Complain about them making it Windows Walled Garden Store only, that's a more legit complaint.

They've got about 15 minutes to let me download the game before I refund it.


I'm actually extremely disappointed because I love Gears but at this point I am just more than annoyed.

I can take the lack of G-sync support (however hilarious it is that it doesn't support it) but add in no things like not being able to specify download location, Windows Store only (which also means it'll have a smaller playerbase) and Vsync issues... yeah I'm starting to not feel it.

You can go into the W10 settings - storage - and specific where to DL windows apps. Can't add a specific location though I think, just hard drive.
