Developer The Coalition has released a new update for the PC version of Gears of War Ultimate Edition, this new update introduces support for some of the new Windows 10 Universal Windows Platform features.
This is the Ultimate Edition’s fifth PC title update, the update fixed a bug that caused post-processing effects to become disabled, added an anisotropic filtering setting to the video options, added a feature that enables players to change the frame rate limit and also to put off v-sync.
Here is the full patch notes provided by the Coalition;
- Added v-sync toggle to video options: Toggle “off” to not be limited by your monitor’s refresh rate. Note: This requires an OS update found here.
- Added frame rate limit selector to video options: Use to reduce your frame rate if you are getting too much tearing, or choose unlimited to let the game render as fast as possible. Note: This option is best used with v-sync off. With v-sync on, it will force the game onto a refresh interval (render every refresh, every second refresh, etc.).
- Added anisotropic filtering setting to video options
- Added FPS counter toggle to video options.
- Fixed a bug where post processing could become disabled.
- Fixed a bug where PSO’s could be created on the fly instead of read from the cache, causing hitches.
The new update will be available starting today for Windows 10 Ultimate Edition owners. Ensure you have the latest Windows Updates before updating.
