Gears of War: Ultimate Edition patch has performance improvements |
  • Performance optimizations
  • Refactor of texture settings to better reflect VRAM requirements and to better manage the texture levels for each setting.
  • Ambient Occlusion tweaks.
  • Tuned mouse coming out of roadie run.
  • Disabled mouse smoothing.

As for what's coming in the future, The Coalition will be adding 21:9 support, NAT problems and more. We should expect these improvements in the coming weeks.

Textures not loading

This will be improved by the update next week. We'll continue to make improvements here where we can.

NAT problems

We are looking into why this is happening. While we work on discovering the root cause, we are discussing changes we can do to help matchmaking if you are erroneously given the wrong NAT type.

Long Queues

Our playlist change coming early next week should help with this.

21:9 Support

We hear you and we are adding ultra-wide resolutions to the game.

Mouse Acceleration

Our update next week will disable mouse smoothing and increase the responsiveness coming out of roadie run. I'll continue to read the feedback after the update.

Achievements not unlocking

We're working on tracking down the reason this would happen.
