Gears of War: Ultimate Edition patch unlocks framerate on Windows 10

The new patch incorporates new features targeting better performance in Windows 10 games and apps.


Following up on yesterday's news that Microsoft would give developers of Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps and games more freedom, a new patch for Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on PC has unlocked the game's framerate.

"A new Title Update will be available today for Windows 10 Ultimate Edition owners," according to patch notes published by The Coalition. The update also enables other technical trappings such as disabling v-sync and fiddling with anisotropic filtering.

Full patch notes follow:

  •         Added v-sync toggle to video options. Toggle “off” to not be limited by your monitors refresh rate. Note: This requires an OS update that can be found here:
  •         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.
