    There isn't any mention of this in the microsoft pages or github, got a source?

    DirectML is not Async compute btw.

    Don't look for a source, you're wrong.

    What? I didn't say anything about DirectML o_O

    We already had this dance several pages back, and Max McMullen, the lead developer on D3D already said:

    Source.

    The fact that you didn't source this comment is suspicious. :confused:

    Max never said Async Compute / Multi engine was not possible on 12on7

    The DirectX discord is publicly joinable if you want to ask the team questions

    ^^ I guess we'll see when the game ships. If it's possible, it may not be worth it, and the game may not even allow you to turn it on if you're on Windows 7. Asynchronous compute only makes sense when there is a performance gain. That's why it's always been disabled in the driver for Maxwell GPUs, because they can't do it without a performance hit.

    And from what the previews have said, Gears 5 will offload almost all of its entire post processing shaders to asynchronous compute so the drivers, API and the GPU hardware will need to be in complete alignment for it to work effectively without causing a performance hit.

    I just got an update on the Xbox App for nearly 1GB. It may not be that, but texture pack will likely be available in the next few days before the game becomes playable on Thursday; that is if you have the Ultimate edition. Standard edition will be playable on the 9th.

    It will probably be an automatic download, and not an option like on Steam.

    The UHD texture pack will be way over 1GB. Maybe you're right, we'll see in the next days.

    I know I'm definitely right. What kind of shenanigans would it be if the texture pack was available on Steam, but not on Microsoft's own platform? o_O

    Even on steam it says(Coming soon). I don't think that you can pre-load the game with the texture pack pre-installed.

    There is no reason why you shouldn't be able to. The Xbox app shows the game will have an approximate size of 66GB. Right now it's at 59.7 for me, so there is still a ways to go. Also Steam's preload starts on Monday or Tuesday this week.

    OK the Coalition's community manager addressed how the texture update is going to happen if you bought your copy through the Windows store.

    Basically, you'll be prompted to download it if you select ultra quality textures while in game. Can't say I'm too happy about this, as Windows store already has really slow downloads; at least for me :mad:

    But it's a consequence of getting to play the game four days early, which is preferable to me as I'm off that Thursday anyway.

    Why would anyone buy this on the Windows Store if it is going to be on Steam?!

    Yep.
    At this point, MS don't really seem to care where people buy their games. Win10 store of Steam. They just seem to want to grow their PC player base.

    Just made me realize, Mixer belongs to Microsoft, Microsoft payed Ninja to move to Mixer, the Halo games will be releasing on PC soon, I wonder if they will get Ninja to play Halo for marketing purposes... from what I understand he used to be a pro Halo player so he would be suited for it.

    They are, He's just recently been to the 343 hq and he is doing a halo promotion.

    He'll have exclusive access before anyone on twitch.



    This. And I don't have any issues with the MS store, If Microsoft are gonna be cool and put the game on both and steam I don't mind using their platform if everyone is given a choice, I also play a few other games from the pc pass. So its all good.

    I thiiiiiink I remember reading a while ago now that Dave Bautista was actually interested in playing Marcus in a live action movie of Gears of War if it ever became a live action movie so this kind of cool.

    He was tweeting about it a few weeks ago, Him and Terry Crews being Marcus and Cole.


    I love all the random people being added as characters.

    I don't know how many people here would know him but i'd love for Simon Miller to be a playable character

    Well, from what I'm hearing so far on twitter and elsewhere, Gears 5 looks like it might very well bring the Gears of War franchise back to form and relevancy. Members of the press and those lucky few who managed to already get their hands on a copy early are saying Gears 5 is the best Gears to date, so we might be seeing some high review scores when the they start dropping on Wednesday.

    If Gears 5 gets a 90+ average score on Metacritic, that will be a big deal, because in the current generation, Microsoft has struggled to get their core titles into the 90+ range with the exception of the Forza Horizon series.
