Whether it was a surprise to hear of its release or not, the fact that it is coming to Windows 10 on PC is great news. Sure, the PC player base missed out on Gears of War 2 and all that followed, so perhaps the idea of buying the game again (well, in a minor way) might not be too appealing. With updated visuals, cutscenes and multiplayer mechanics, it might be worth it. It’s certainly worth it for the Xbox One, as there are no Gears games available to play, even with Backwards Compatibility doing the rounds on the Xbox Preview program. No date has been announced for the pc version, but the Xbox One version will be available on August 25th.

Splash Damage are the studio behind the development of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, while Rod Ferguson and The Coalition continue to develop Gears of War 4, which was revealed at E3 this year. Gears of War has a massive following, with the series selling epicly (no pun intended) on the Xbox 360, and fans are excited for the opportunity to play it again on their new platforms. Count me in too!
