Gears of War: Ultimate Edition has received a much-needed update on PC.
Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Windows 10 gets unlocked frame-rate, v-sync toggle
Gears of War: Ultimate Edition developer The Coalition has patched the game to add in a v-sync toggle, as well as an option to unlock the frame-rate.
This follows the most recent Windows 10 update, which allowed UWP apps and games to support these options, something many players have been asking for since the OS's launch.
Because of this, you'll need to update Windows 10 before updating the game, to take advantage of the changes.
Find all the patch notes for title update 5 below:
- Added v-sync toggle to video options. Toggle 'off' to not be limited by your monitors refresh rate.
- 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.
