    Loved the original Gears of War on PC, can't wait to see the remastered one! Now they just need to get 2 and 3 on it.

    Day ****ing one.

    DX12 only is also very nice. It means we should expect great performance even with modest hardware.

    I don't even know why a game PORTED in 2007 warrants a re-master edition by itself? Its as if PC Gamers don't have better games to buy instead?!

    Shouldn't MS step up and remaster GoW 1, 2, 3 and Anvil Gate prequel as a collectors edition like they DID FOR HALO for the xbone?!

    PC Gamers who support this nonsense will only ensure this platform gets table scraps for full price. There are much better game developers out there to support than this despite being a GoW fan.

    I reckon it's to gauge the sales to see if it's worth it for them to bring 2 - 4 to the PC as well.

    Can't agree more. Don't understand why this is being perceived as a good thing in here? This is an afterthought title thrown to us. Gow4 being announced as on PC as well and XB1 would have been a huge announcement and proof MS is really trying to push the two. A remake? No thanks.

    When asked if Gears 4 was coming to PC, he did his best to dodge the question.
    Chances are they are making plans to not only bring Gears 2 and 3 to Xbox One, but also bring the rest of the series to PC.

    But using the first game as a way to judge the interest behind the series.

    And Microsoft has said multiple times in recent months that they are aware that they've dropped the ball on the PC platform. And it's something they want to fix going forward with Win10 and such.
    I could easily see the rest of the series coming to PC.

    But, I'll gladly grab the remaster.
    One, it won't have the GFWL shoved in it like the original Gears port did. And hopefully some of the issues the original port suffered from will be addressed.

    But, I see this as a first step in bringing the series to PC. Which is great, as Gears 2 and 3 are miles above and beyond the first game.

    If you actually take time to watch the following video I think you'll find there's much more effort gone into this new version than you realise

    The amount of new assets they've included is actually quite impressive.

    The PC version won't be out until "holiday 2015" though.

    Small price to pay for what will be by far the definitive version.

    Definitely looks a LOT better.
    I'll gladly take the more detailed version, more color as well. Makes the world look a lot better.

    People always want to rag on id for "brown games"... take at look at Gears of War. The text book example of a brown and gray game.

    If this was done with Battlefield Bad Company 1, Id buy it at full price.

    Im still pissed to this day that it never made it to PC.
    On topic though, I actually dont mind seeing older games getting updated in new tech etc.

    Give me RainbowSix Vegas 2 in Unreal 4 engine with DX12

    Microsoft does pretty good with remaster editions. Halo Anniversary looked great! Sony remakes on the other hand are just re-releases with a higher resolution which drive me ****ing nutts!

    Anyways, I can't wait for this. Love Gears of War on the PC. Will this require us to use xbox live on Windows 10? I have a feeling this is coming out with strings attached.

    It would look a lot better if it were U4E..

    That would be a pretty bad way to judge interest, by only releasing the first game which is already on PC. I have no interesst in playing 1 again, but would buy 2 and 3.

    I surely hope not and dont think it would.
    Games for Windows Live is dead, and not everyone owns a crappy XBOX(my personal opinion) and has a Xlive account.

    Don't really care. Already played it on PC once. A new coat of paint doesn't make me want to pay for it and play it again. As the old saying goes, you can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig.
