>Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on PC releases today exclusively to the Windows 10 Store. It should have been another prominent feather in Microsoft's DirectX 12 cap. Instead, it’s one of the most disastrous PC game launches in years, and many AMD Radeon owners are advised to steer completely clear during the game’s launch window.

>I don’t know precisely how QA is carried out at game studios, though I suspect they’re not doing as thorough a job as they could be. One has to assume that at some point a tester or developer sits down with a batch of the latest video cards and tests their upcoming PC game with them. That seems reasonable, right? Especially for a flagship franchise from Microsoft. Especially for a company pushing the advantages of DirectX 12.

>If someone at The Coalition or anyone involved in the porting, remastering, and development process would have taken the time to play Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on an AMD Radeon Fury, for example, they would have seen this atrocity:

>What you’re watching is the Radeon Fury running the Gears of War: Ultimate Edition benchmark on my capable Intel test bench, at 1440p with High quality settings. These settings include FXAA and Ambient Occlusion. You’re also seeing horrendous hitching and stuttering, and some visual corruption thrown in for good measure, making the game completely unplayable on an excellent $500 graphics card.

>I’ve verified this performance with other tech writers.

Serious question here though: how does something like this even happen? AMD Drivers are already beating Nvidia in other DX12 titles. Why is Gears a collosal fuckup?

gears forum update

>AMD Performance
AMD is an important partner bringing the promise of DirectX 12 to life for gamers everywhere. We are working closely with them to address a few issues encountered in Gears of War: Ultimate Edition for Windows 10 on AMD cards using GCN 1.1/GCN 1.2, and expect they will be addressed quickly in an upcoming update. Please visit AMD support pages for the latest on AMD drivers and software.

>AMD and Ambient Occlusion setting
There are visual issues with AMD graphics cards and the Ambient Occlusion setting, it is strongly recommended to turn this setting OFF. We are readying a fix to be deployed in the coming days.

To turn OFF Ambient Occlusion:
- Launch Gears of War: Ultimate Edition for Windows 10
- From the Main Menu, go to Settings
- Select Video and set Ambient Occlusion to OFF
I'd like to see benchmarks that use GCN 1.1 and 1.2 on high settings without Ambient Occlusion

I really liked Gears of War multiplayer.

It's a shame Microsoft owns it because they're huge fucking faggots.

I only use Linux, but this isn't even gonna be playable through Wine for anywhere in the foreseeable future, seeing as how it's DX12/win10 only.

>I don’t know precisely how QA is carried out at game studios

used to work for a company testing gears of war for xbox, then testing other video games for both pc, 360 and one.

believe me when i say it: shit like this is ALWAYS caught by qa. ALWAYS. its not up to qa whether this shit is fixed or not though.

there are several requirements that a title has to fullfill like say "run at 60fps at all times". but even stuff like this gets pushed through.

you have no idea how much i cried when state of decay was published as an unfinished piece of shit with thousands of "wont fix" bugs.

I completely forgot about how disgusting host advantage was on that game. Yeah I didn't care that the shotgun was so good, the game largely revolving around shotgun fights was fun.

I actually legitimately want to buy this but I really fucking can't.

The game is tied to store with the launcher shit so I can't even download the image on third computer to install it on other, more powerful computer(s).

I really wan't to play it but there's about no way for me to play it unless I reinstall fucking Pro or Home on my more powerful PCs.

I agree. I like both GPUs and I believe it's the devs fault for not beta testing this damn game. Interesting though it's the 2nd AAA game in Microsoft store. Rise of Tomb Raider was tested and approved before to be put in the store. So I hope other developers will learn in the future to not rush out titles without testing them first.

>> No.53278152

Again it was tested. Again testing results were overridden by business decisions. It's always like that nowadays.
