Here's everything we know about PC version:
>We do not have any news to share at this time for the PC version.
The reason it is so big is because it includes all of the previous updates using a new compression method. After installing this massive update the game will actually take up less hdd space and future updates should be much smaller in download size.
I feel so played for even buying the Season Pass.
3 characters unique characters, Vintage skins (sarcastic whoopee), and 20 boxes which gave me mostly bounties (like crumbs from the bottom of a bag) .
Apparently maps will be free.
I mostly paid $46.00 for early access.
I've played the game since the 7th, and have yet to unlock anything. I have almost 5,000 credits which will be gone in 2 seconds for basically nothing.
No, I won't be getting into scrapping everything I just unlocked for 20, or 120 points, when everything costs like 300-600 points to make.
What kind of cell phone app B/S is this ? I paid for a finished product, not a scrap booking project. WTF, Coalition?
Seriously gonna read up on the next release before I pre-order or buy. If they pull this credit, scrapping shit again, I won't be buying the sequel.
I also love how the reviews I watched, failed to mentioned anything of the system. Or how the devs were not too anxious to talk about it.
People are even more ticked off on their official GoW Forum
63 Legendary Characters Locked Behind Pay Wall
Another Link. No characters unlocked via leveling
Hey guys - We do not have any news to share at this time for the PC version. I know some are worried but please don't fret. We are wanting to make sure polish and performance are prioritized on the PC version so that you all have a great experience. Once we have additional information, I can tell say you will be the first to know. I'm pretty stoked for the PC version myself as I am an avid PC gamer :)
That was posted on Nov 19.
Its gotta be hell of you're a fan of the EnVy org, you must despise OpTic.
They were going to pick up Formal & Crim, but due to backlash, they decided to drop Formal instead, leading to OpTic gaining what essentially became the greatest dynasty in CoD history, that nV could of bad.
Top tier Halo team. Second only to CLG. OpTic? They barely can qualify for Wor- annnnd they bought CLG. Now they own a two time World Champions Halo Team.
CS:GO. Pick up former LDLC. European squad. Win a major. Things are great, OpTic isn't even in CS:GO.
two years later
EnVy's CS:GO team is a shell of it's former self.. Meanwhile, OpTic picked up a tier 3 NA team at the beginning of the year, and now have won the biggest tournament a NA team has ever won, Fucking Eleague, which was broadcasted on television.
OpTic enters Gears Of War, by Picking up #1 team, Enemy!
And 5. EnVy was in NALCS since May of 2016, and now have been denied re-entry... With OpTic possibly taking there place.
Seriously. We really fuck EnVy a ton. No wonder Hastro is so pissed at us.
Before someone tells you to git gud, I'd like to point out that there is a post on the forums with video proof of took guys testing shots out in a private matches that shows how your shot doesn't really fire even though the animation shows that you do along with blood coming out of your opponent. You shoot but do not damage and consume no ammo.
Looks like The Coalition is investigating it already.
Thanks for sharing! We can't wait for everyone picking up an Xbox One X to get hands on with this on November 7th. The team worked super hard on this.

To be fair...
People were really happy when they made "official announcements" on twitter, or when they made that thread stating some things they're looking into.
Most people don't have the time to "research" and skim through posts to see if anything is going on. When we're getting 99% of updates about stuff like this through replies in threads, or in twitter chains that most people don't see, it doesn't exactly help them out.
The transparency that we got from that Forum Post was fantastic. Unfortunately, there isn't a 'high rate' of responses like this.
I don't care if they can't say exactly what they're doing, and I know it's going to take time to implement some stuff. But having posts like this, or some of the replies that they've had are nice things...to show that we can expect changes in the future. Individual replies are nice, but public posts go a LOT further.
I don't know the perfect solution, but I know that quite a few people are disappointed in the amount of transparency we currently have.
Except a lot of people, and I mean a lot of people aren't legitimately having problems. They have been abusive with their messaging.
They will all tell you BS about being innocent, but the proof is when you look at their chart. High report of others, and high number of reported incidents including messaging.
Case in point:
This is the original poster. See his original post on the first page and contrast with the report!
I disagree. Gears 2 had some great moments, like riding the Brumak and killing the giant worm, but it also had the weakest final boss (Lambent Brumak) and unclear direction when it came to the Myrrah and the Sires.
Gears 3 is the best campaign, in my opinion. It ties everything together nicely, and had pulled some serious emotions when it came to Dom and then with Adam Fenix.
Here is the update from TC
> Hey Gears fans,
> There was an incorrect piece of communication on our Feral Horde signup page that listed the deadline at February 28th at 10am PDT. This deadline was incorrect and at odds with our other communications, which listed the event end as the 27th.
> As this caused confusion, we've been working on the quickest solution possible to make sure fans still have the expected amount of time to complete the objectives for skins. Starting right now, here's how you can still work towards earning the Feral Horde skins:
> Any user registered in the Feral Horde Play To Earn event can complete waves of Horde on Hardcore Difficulty or above to contribute to their objective total
Any waves completed from 10am PDT on February 27th - 1pm PDT on February 28th contribute to your total
Hardcore or Insane Difficulty waves can be completed in Public or Private Play on any map
All current Feral Horde wave completions have been logged towards your total
Non-Feral Horde Playlist waves completed outside of the times listed above do not count towards your total
Additional wave completions will be counted until 1pm PDT on Tuesday 28th February (tomorrow). Additionally:
The Feral Horde playlist will not be returning for this extended period.
The Feral Horde Gear Pack will not be returning for this extended period, but we are looking at bringing it back in the near future
New user registration for the Feral Horde event will remain unavailable as planned
As a reminder, here's the totals required for each character skin:
50 Waves: Tiger Skin.
100 Waves: Cheetah Skin.
200 Waves: Snow Leopard Skin.
Unlocks will be added to your Gamertag by March 31st 2017.
And welcome to BEND OVER FOR $10 packs.
Oh I thought access to all prior packs was technically not supported by their game? If they can do it for 10 days, they can sure do it for unlimited
Edit: Posted on the forums for anyone who wants to contribute to a discussion there. Got rid of my psych rant to provide for a more focused discussion on my suggestion. https://gearsofwar.com/en-us/forums/e9b54fc61eb74ad783d533ca502b0132/threads/please-implement-daily-weekly-bounties-that-award-gear-packs-or-mass-credits/789a25ef-9594-4119-937c-47d625db9494/posts
As a huge Gears of War fan, I would recommend Rise of the Tomb Raider. Really enjoyed my time with it. If you're interested in Gears, wait for Gears of War 4 (comes out October) when most of the community moves over to it. Buying Gears 4 will also net you all the 360 Gears games through Back Compat.
Gears is the Dark Souls of multiplayer shooters. It has a steep learning curve, but is really rewarding once you figure it out. There's not too many weapons, and the weapons themselves aren't complex to use. Everyone starts a match with the same loadout, and weapons can only be swapped at weapon spawns or with a teammate. It's mostly the mechanics of movement... Gears is pretty unusual in a world full of one-shot FPS. Rifles take the better part of a clip to down an enemy, and then you have to finish them off. Shotguns and power weapons will do the job in one shot... if you take advantage of the way they work. But the movement is different. You need to use cover, and there's no real way to accurately describe the total cover mechanic in this game and how it applies to multiplayer... you just have to learn it.

Re read that thread again that was from October 21st
>no companies even think about getting a good impression on us
What about The Coalition, who made Gears 4? One of the most optimized games I've played in recent years, and the devs added an advanced benchmark feature, a crazy amount of graphics settings, plus a big performance guide pre-launch.
Or even Black Ops III. Could have been just a port with the same features as the console version minus split-screen as usual, but Treyarch's PC dev team also added split-screen to the PC version in all modes, plus they added map tools, modding, a server browser, and custom dedicated servers.
Horde would count as co-op multiplayer since it's not competitive. I'll try and find a source, but I'm 99% certain they said no to competitive MP.
Edit: Found the official source:
>Crossplay opens up a wider community to play with than ever before across our co-op modes. Here’s what to expect in Gears of War 4:
>Campaign: Play co-op campaign across Xbox and PC. Your saves and collectibles transfer to both platforms, allowing you to pick up the action regardless of which platform you play on.
>Horde: Fight the Swarm alongside your friends and find new allies in matchmaking from either Xbox or PC.
>Versus: Train up your skills in Co-Op Versus with friends from either platform. To preserve the competitive nature of Gears and individual balance for each platform, Crossplay is not enabled in standard Versus multiplayer.
We are aware that some are having issues redeeming their Gears of War beta codes. Don't worry! We are aware and the proper folks are on it.
Keep an eye on this post as I will update it as we receive new information.
UPDATE: The Official Gears of War page as well as our Service Status page has been updated to reflect this issue.
UPDATE: Hey again, everyone! We have been receiving reports that the code redemption issue has now been resolved. If you're still experiencing an issue trying to redeem your Gears of War Ultimate Edition beta code, please let us know. Thanks in advance!
It's so complicated I'm reluctant to even start. It makes overwatch godsend when i decide to play it because they throw lootboxes at you all the time for everything but here it goes.
In gears 4 there are different type of loot boxes, versus 400 credits/$1 (gives you bounties to set each game to accomplish a goal for xp), horde 400/$1 (more bountys but for horde mode only), operations 800/$2 (chance at customizable items like overwatch), elite 2000/$5 (higher chance at rarer items) and then the filthy monthly one weekend only community packs, 400 to 2000 credits. The drops on these are crazy and meant to exhaust your credits so you buy.
You have to buy the loot boxes with credits you can earn for each game win or lose 60 to 130 credits. You get 500 credits every 5 levels I think. You can earn some credits by completing rare bountys.
You only get loot boxes free when you reup (the military term for prestige). Thus every 100 levels.
Then there's scrap when you drop duplicates like overwatch, you get scrap for it to actually buy what you want. That system is very stingy but hopefully they fix it in the next game.
Then they have the esports supporter packs for 10 bucks a pop only. For a chance at a character skin and there's still regular launch game stuff in them.
There's been so much complaining that they've readjusted the packs since release for better but it's don't enough. I cant recall much else do some searching on the r/gearsofwar sub and you'll see.
You can see the packs in this link
If you think that's impressive, The Coalition released a very thorough blog for Gears of War 4 before release, explaining graphics settings, expected framerate, and benchmarks for different setups. Link
No, not a downgrade. Nice cherry pick though.
I made a post about this on their forum.
Be sure to comment and get their attention about it. They are likely not viewing reddit threads.
Who would have thought coming into 2018 that the first team to bring home a win would be DOTA!??!? GG to the guys looking better and better!
EDIT: I stand corrected, Gears won in Jan - https://gearsofwar.com/en-us/esports/GPC-MexicoCity_Jan1
This is worth the read it's pretty interesting.
I booted up each game this weekend to compare the shotgun spread between the games. I used Gridlock as my map since it is in every game and used 3 reference points on the map to show the difference between the Gnasher generations.
The close range shot is taken from the flowerbeds on the docks.
The midrange shot is taken from the sniper tower wall to wall,
The far shot is taken on the freeway spawn wall to wall.
To keep the distances consistent, I backed my character all the way against the wall in each reference area and shot a round. Then I took a picture of the damage from each, transferred the images to GIMP, and highlighted each hole with a different color. I tried to make sure the walls lined up in gimp so that the picture sizes didn't effect the highlighting.
Edit: There is actually a thread on the Official Gears of War Beta forum saying the exact same thing
Every day is a new skin that you only have for that day. Not all days. So thats why the other skins are gone. It explains is right here in the first post!
So Chris Chaney just followed all of the Ronin Gear of War team....
EDIT: One of the players posted this 19 hours ago
>Well as you know we are looking for org for the events that remain, and because I want to thank @RoninHQ for everything they did for us, we were always treated very well, I wish you the best was a pleasure to represent and thank you for trusting US @darks7de @ItsVeo ❤️
EDIT 2: I'd imagine they will be going to Obey/ALG/GGEA or maybe even "OpTic International" devision which is odd as I thought Gears would be against Multi Owned teams but I cant seem to find anything about it in the rules for "GEARS PRO CIRCUIT LAS VEGAS OPEN RULES AND FORMAT"
EDIT 3: Thanks to /u/darios2og for pointing out that MLG ban Multi Owned Teams in Pro League but not Open Events.
EDIT 4: He as now went and followed he more random Gears of War players so it's now anyone's guess on whats happening :D
His suspension ends on October 16th with the exception that he is still banned from Fall Regionals which takes places on November 11th-12th. SO he will still miss this weekends 2k but can compete in them after this weekend and he won't miss any pro circuit events. https://gearsofwar.com/en-us/gpc-s1-code-of-conduct

From about the middle of the page.
Technically, the UE lighting/textures are far superior. Also, as explained in the first Remaster video, there are story elements that are not included that should have been had there been more time to do so.
Admittedly, the soft yellow lighting of the UE, as opposed to the gray "lighting" of the original is as much a matter of preference as it is improvement. I am so used to Casablanca in black and white, I think it would be difficult to embrace that movie in color. That is a legit concern for those who are opposed to the changes.
I think the UE looks so good, I am interested in embracing it fully as the "director's cut" in the same way I like Blade Runner The Final Cut.
It has been confirmed by Jack Felling that the DLC in the deluxe edition will not be available individually after release.
edit for link
The people who have registered on the website have not had codes sent to them. Only "Legacy" players have had the codes sent. These are players who:
Have an Xbox Live Gold account in "good standing"
You have to have played Gears 1, 2, 3 and judgment and logged into Xbox Live on an Xbox One Console before April 2015.
Otherwise you should not yet have any codes.
That being said, I should meet the Legacy requirements and I haven't gotten a code yet either.

Practice and become extremely accurate with the gnasher. You'll need to learn how to properly wall bounce and pull off reaction shots. Watch some of the streams from past events and see how the current pros play. Join a team and scrim whenever you have the chance. Just practice practice practice until you have mastered the mechanics of Gears 4.
I know I may receive some negative feedback for this, but Gears is a very easy game to move from novice to pro in less than a year if you dedicate enough time.

We will be doing another code drop this evening to help address some of the issues. As noted before, codes will be going out in waves as we ramp up our servers through the beta.
Starting tomorrow morning (pacific time), we will be sending out a higher volume of codes to help compensate for this change and due to server stability seen during Day 1 of our beta.
This change and volume will carry on through Wednesday and Thursday morning (pacific time) which will cover off on everyone for early access.
We apologize for the confusion during this process and we are looking forward to seeing everyone in-game during the beta. "

"On October 30th 2015, you'll be greeted to a new look collection of playlists for Gears of War: Ultimate Edition. These changes are listed below.
Warzone OR Special Event
2v2 Gnasher Execution
Competitive is now home exclusively to Execution and Blitz, the former using the slightly varied settings from the ESL eSports Pro League (excluding Friendly Fire). We wanted to make the difference between Social and Competitive experiences clearer, and help our fans choose the kind of experience they want. For modes that no longer appear in Competitive, we’ve bumped their XP up in social playlists to match their old Competitive counterparts.
When there’s no special event, we’ll feature Warzone as a playlist in it's place. Assassination has been removed from playlists and will now appear exclusively as a special event, due to the mode having a low volume of matches played comparative to the other modes. We selected this group of playlists based on a variety of factors, including player population count, to focus our playlist offering and improve the online matchmaking experience for Gears of War fans."
It doesn't it was clarified later in that forums post it was a mistake it was labeled that it did.
The shotgun spread on the firing is significantly smaller so it makes the game very hard to hit despite it looks like you should.
Issue I am talking about discussed here:
You just need to complete a single match, you won't get a notification.
It is exactly how it works. You're ranking is mainly based on whether you won or lost a match, your individual performance is factored in but to a lesser degree.
Edit: Read here. So TC says they factor them evenly, but still goes to show that it's not just based on individual performance, but your win/loss ratio as well.
Do not buy the Season Pass unless you are willing to risk not getting half of the content.
A lot of players, myself included, are reporting that the Season Pass is missing all of the packs, including the skins, characters, and the gears packs.
Oh, and Dev wont respond to complaints.
Probably, but no idea when.
Last week Octus said that the dev team is looking at ways to "bring back old Gear Packs for fans to have more opportunities to get the content they want."
I want another crack at the UIR packs myself. I only bought two at the time.
The new weekly DLC will probably stop in the fall, and when it does, maybe they'll start rotating old packs in and out. Recycle.
The dev's response is: Get good.
They're opening up crossplay in ranked already because they saw no difference in PC/Console skill level. Maybe the PC has a higher average skill level, but the top end is about the same.
Or you can just disable being matched with PC players.
The Coalition have already detailed some of the stuff they're doing in their One X patch, and it includes higher res textures, fully-dynamic and more detailed shadows, better volumetric lighting, improved reflections, longer draw distances, and more polygonal detail, in addition to the native 4k rendering.
>Following on the heels of Dizzy, we are hard at work bringing back more Legacy Characters by updating their voice work and character fidelity to make them right at home in Gears 4.
TC may have not priotized legacy characters in their initial scope of post-launch DLC till fans started advocated it in the weeks prior to launch. We just have to wait, we're all aching for the return of theses characters and by their track record in regards to the detail on these characters IMO, it will be worth the wait.
I logged into the GearsofWar website and the packs were ready to be opened. They should show up in your packs in the game or on the website as long as you played the game last year.
Crossplay is enabled for Horde and Campaign. And at the moment it's enabled for versus through a special event which is going to last until January 4th.
But they are looking to make it permanent since it had a lot of positive responses during a test weekend just a couple of weeks ago.
In the meantime you can buy it and play it with your friends for 2+ Weeks.
I have a 970, and it runs it very, very well. It's probably the most optimised game I've experienced in the past couple of years. The devs wrote a very detailed performance guide about it, and specifies what to expect from a 970.
> Is Myyrah human? Before we just thought she looked human
We've known for a long while that she's human.
>So we can conclude the Myyrah was captured by the Locust and underwent a similar process as Reyna, eventually going corrupt and becoming their queen.
Incorrect. This post full explains the locust and their origins..
Amazon has the Warbird Gnasher. It looks pretty good. Here's a thread listing all the pre-order bonuses. I'm kind of ashamed to admit, but I pre-ordered from 2 different places to get the bonuses. I am part of the problem. Haha.
> Considering UE doesn't even meet the standards of a good remaster
I disagree. Some remasters just improve the overall performance of the game. With the Ultimate Edition, they went back through the original game and rebuilt all the assets and cinematics. Plus, they added the campaign content from the PC version, 60 FPS multiplayer on dedicated servers, and added some game modes too.
> Why would you play UE when multiple games have since surpassed Gears 1?
1) Nostalgia for those that have played through it years ago.
2) Those that have never played a Gears of War game can use this one as an introduction to the universe, especially since Gears of War 4 is releasing this year.
Why play the original when you can not only play the Ultimate Edition with updated visuals / performance, but also play a game that is likely to be more populated than the 9 year version?
Yes. UE itself is just the first game remastered, albeit sprinkled with some different multiplayer elements from 3 and the PC-exclusive bits of story from 1. The "includes the entire trilogy" is the digital entitlement to the 360 versions on Xbox One that I mentioned above. This is all subject to change I'm sure by the time UE comes to PC(I hope it does as well, 2/3/Judgement on PC would be great), but this is all that has been announced thus far.
Q: I seem to be getting matched up with higher/lower level players, is matchmaking working?
A: Please note that the matchmaking system works on SKILL-based matchmaking and does not use the visible XP ranks to match-make. However, it does take several games for the system to determine your "skill-based rank". After players play a few games they will be matched according to their skill. Some players may be a high XP rank but have low skill and vice versa, so that is why it may appear to not be matchmaking you correctly -- however the system should properly match you based on skill after a few initial games.

good job Gears of war community. You guessed right
They actually did specify that PC players would get a code for Xbox.
It's right on the FAQ for the beta.
Don't blame them for you being an uninformed customer.
They did announce a 2015 holiday release date originally on their announcement post by Jack and they later amended it.
Thats why everyone was saying 2015. It was announced and then later silently changed.

Hello all - Codes have gone out to users for all four titles. Keep an eye on your Xbox messages. We have updated the FAQ on our site. Please refer to the FAQ for questions and for support links if you have any questions or issues.
>Q: Will there be a patch for Gears of War: Ultimate Edition? What will be included in the patch?
A: Yes we are planning on patching Ultimate Edition. We are currently evaluating the high priority fixes that should go into the patch. We are looking into issues such as the shotgun, the scoreboard in spectator mode, the L-trigger delay to shoot bug, the instant roadie run after being revived bug, some crash bugs, and a number of other hot issues. Once we know what will be fixed we will release patch notes. There is no set timeframe for the patch yet but we hope to get it out as quickly as possible.
No. It's a bug and it's being looked at. Body shots are showing up as headshots. Proof:
Q: What is wrong with the shotgun? Are you going to fix it?
A: Yes we are investigating the shotgun. Although the aiming works exactly the same between Gears of War 1 and Gears of War UE, there are some inconsistencies in terms of damage/spread and some other bugs going on. We are looking into this to make it more consistent and skillful. Please note that there is also a bug with the reporting of the shotgun kills that shows headshot shotgun kills when they are actually body kills. We are looking into this as well.
No. People will receive codes for the originals once backwards compatibility is rolled out to everyone in November.
Apparently, the add-ons carrying over to Gears 4 was an error. It's been fixed on the store now.
EDIT: Here's a link to the forum post confirming it--it's the last post in the topic.
Right but they've said nothing about the beta actually coming to PC, as far as I've seen.
No Cross-Platform Gameplay
No details on beta (if any) yet

Your download code should still give you the game though. You might need to manually start the download from the right hand side of My Games & Apps.
This post TC post covers everything. There is two types of rank. Your background ELO and your in game rank (silver,gold,onxy) and your in game rank can not surpass your background ELO.
If you are stuck its bucz its where u belong as an individual. You need to keep performing well to make your ELO go up. Winning and losing doesnt matter as much for your ELO. Just do well.
The ranking system is more based around your performance and who you're going against then it is about winning straight out. Then if you do average or bad especially when against lower rank players it hits ur background ELO hard.
Im not implying ur being carried but in this game u cant be bronze, group with a stack of diamonds, win a bunch, and go up to diomond. You have to individualy preform like a diamond for an extended period of time to make your ELO rise.
Hope this helps
Here you go.
This is where you can see how many you actually have as well as claim other rewards as well. You’ll just have to sign in with your Microsoft account.
give this a shot:
I found a few posts about it by searching: "install greyed out microsoft store"
post here in tell them what happened
Win 5 matches and get 50 kills with the t-bow. But it doesn't count unless you register for the challenge here: Flaming T-Bow challenge
the gnasher in the Gears Of War series has become the meta in all the iterations because of it's power and agility and you really need to learn to use it if you want to stand a chance in versus but when you learn to control it you feel unstoppable ( there's an intense science analysis behind it in competitive play the devs update that gun every month)
but also there's the sawed-off in gears 3 which is one of the most hated guns in the series history because it turned the gnasher skill into a joke in versus since you don't even need to aim to kill everything standing in front of you but that was what made it feel so good (specially because firing it came with a big BOOM that was really satisfying)
but then how do you 1-up it in gears 4? making it a quad-barrell auto shotgun named the OVERKILL with an extremely fast rate of fire that shreds anything when it's close enough (even in horde when fully damage upgraded it can quickly kill any boss in less than a minute)
This is usually a router issue, try googling the words teredo router for more tips on troubleshooting it. Here's one for the PC versions of Gears of War, but the router tips should work for Xbox too if that is the issue:
