'Gears of War: Ultimate Edition' and 'Killer Instinct' will come to PC

Microsoft hasn't offered a whole lot of affection to PC gamers in recent years, but it's making some reparations for that today: the company's Phil Spencer has revealed at the PC Gaming Show that both Gears of War: Ultimate Edition and the 2013 version of Killer Instinct will come to Windows 10. He didn't have much to say about when these ports will show up, or whether or not they'll have any new tricks up their sleeves. However, Iron Galaxy Studios' Dave Lang has confirmed Spencer's hint that KI will have Fable Legends-style cross-platform play that lets you brawl with your Xbox One-toting friends.

This isn't the same as bringing a truly new Gears of War or other cutting-edge Xbox titles to the PC. Still, this and Windows 10's gaming features are welcome signs that Microsoft's perception of computer gaming is improving. And hey, Hello Games also mentioned at the show that No Man's Sky will launch on the PC at the same time as the PlayStation 4 version -- if you don't like Microsoft's offerings, you'll have at least one other hotly anticipated title waiting in the wings.
