Gears of War: Ultimate Edition receives Ambient Occlusion Patch

 

A new patch for Gears of War Ultimate Edition has been released, fixing the game's Ambient Occlusion graphical effect, allowing it to run on AMD GPUs without artifacts or other visual glitches.

Right now it is recommended that gamers update the game to the latest patch as soon as they can, as users who don't will have difficulty accessing the games multiplayer component.  To update the game users will have to go into the Windows Store, select downloads and then updates in order to start updating the game.

We have tested this new patch and have found that the game did not have visual artifacts anymore on out AMD R9 Fury X, but our game performance did not improve, so AMD gamers will have to continue to wait in order to get reasonable performance in this game. 

 

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Devs are working on Multi-GPU Support

 

When Gear of War: Ultimate Edition launched on PC last week the game was a disaster, performing badly on AMD platforms, refusing to download for many users and having several other issues that are unique to games that are Exclusive to the Windows 10 Store. 

We have done a PC performance report on Gear of War Ultimate Edition on PC, showcasing it's launch performance on a wide range of GPU hardware. You can have a look at our Gear of War: Ultimate Edition Performance Review here.

that is a nice collection of screenshots there.

The one shame about this game is it's AMD performance, which is something that the developers shouldn't have overlooked. Now the game has a bad reputation and will give Microsoft a hard time selling anything to us in the future.

If you are on NVidia the game plays great, it is just terrible that that seems to be the only thing the devs have done right.Quote

It runs really smooth, well over 30fps... i dont notice stutter at 4k.
Yeah it might affect them a small amount however, the biggest thing is not being in steam. and using it on my shield TV is a nightmare.Quote

The only reason M$ will have any trouble selling things on their store in the future would be because of a missing refund policy. If they'd offered refunds, people would've most likely put more of the blame on the development and less on the storeQuote
