During the week of E3, a beta for the upcoming Gears of War: Ultimate Edition took place, and feedback from participants has prompted developer The Coalition to make numerous adjustments to the game.

Players logged over a million matches into the game between June 15 and June 23 according to this blog post, which included 41.2 million kills and 120 years of game playtime. Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, launching next month on August 25, will receive the following fixes after player feedback.


  • Multiple fixes and tuning for the Gnasher Shotgun
  • Multiple fixes for Frag Grenades, Boomshot, and Torque Bow
  • Tuning for footstep audio and other sounds around a player
  • King of the Hill improvements, including ability for The Coalition to adjust more settings for competitive play
  • Removed active down from Active Reloaded Longshot sniper rifle and added/tuned active bonus for sniper bloom/aim
  • Bug fixes and tuning for skill-based matchmaking
  • Tuned red/blue colours for team shaders (Locust/COG)
  • Improved look of blood and gore in gameplay
  • Improved game performance to reduce screen tearing
  • Bug fixes and tuning for Controller Sensitivity Settings
  • Various bug fixes on maps, weapons, matchmaking, audio, and control

The post iterates that this is not a comprehensive list of all of the fixes the game will receive, but rather just a summary.
