Gears of War: Ultimate Edition has appeared on the Windows 10 Store, continuing Microsoft's Xbox push onto PC.

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition remasters the smash hit Xbox 360 third person shooter, which initially launched back in 2006. Microsoft released the Ultimate Edition on Xbox One last summer, after confirming at last year's PC Gaming Show that it would eventually arrive on Windows too. The game is currently unavailable for purchase, but the listing likely indicates that it'll go live very soon.

The Windows 10 version boasts "all-new ultra-high definition graphics up to 4K", showcasing the "latest in PC gaming performance." Those who pick up the Windows 10 version will also gain access to a Deluxe Weapon Skin Pack and 11 bonus multiplayer characters.
