Microsoft’s Gears of War: Ultimate Edition game has finally made it to the Windows Store, and the first reviews are already here, bashing the experience with downloading and running the game.

So if you got the game, you might wanna make sure that you’re running the latest graphics drivers, and if you’re on a Windows 10 PC with an NVIDIA graphics card, you should know that there are already fresh  WHQL drivers available for your device.

Nvidia announced that “the new GeForce Game Ready 362.00 WHQL drivers for Far Cry Primal and Gears of War: Ultimate Edition are now available to download via GeForce Experience“, so if you have or plan to get either of those games, you should download them right away. nvidia geforce gears of war
