  • Damn those recommended specs hit me hard every time
  • I am running this game in an Intel HD 4000 lol jk
  • Actually it's a 362.00, not 363.00
  • GoW looks as brown as ever.
  • Slowest downloading ever
  • the game I mean not the driver
  • SLI support?
  • The GeForce Game Ready 362.00 WHQL drivers are now available to download, offering game ready support for Far Cry Primal, Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, and Dying Light: The Following - Enhanced Edition. Far Cry Primal arrived last week for console, but it's available today for PC, bringing with it higher fidelity visuals to soak in the world better. The new drivers bring performance optimizations and an SLI profile, giving you the best experience from the start
  • They ask too much for a remastered game ... I`m keeping my money for Battlefield 5 than playing this all over again.
  • Isn't BF5 just a "remastered" version of BF1,2,3,4,... ad nauseum?
  • All modern sepia-tone broshooters are the same sh*t.  
  • BF4 is BF3 evolved with lots of new stuff .. this game is just as the original and they ask again for money :)
  • There are some extra missions...  but yeah.. you're right... it should cost less..  especially if you already own Gears 1 on X1 or X360  
  • It's it like £19.99 from Microsoft themselves, hopefully it will be a similar price for PC as well!!!! :P
