Gears of War PC Goes Gold

GearsOfWarPC.jpgIt won’t be long now until PC gamers can experience the game hailed by many as the Xbox 360’s best. Microsoft Game Studios has announced today that Gears of War for Windows has gone gold and is locked and loaded for a North American retail release on November 6th. The year-long wait has turned out to be a blessing in disguise for PC gamers too, as the new version comes packed with five additional campaign chapters, three exclusive multiplayer maps, a King of the Hill multiplayer match type, Games for Windows – LIVE support, brand new Achievements, enhanced visuals, a new game editor tool and all seven multiplayer maps and the Annex match type previously released as downloadable content add-ons for the 360, all in one tidy package for $49.99.

Man, Xbox 360 owners must feel a little screwed here. Sounds like the PC version is the true Gears of War experience the team at Epic always envisioned.
