Gears of War for Windows  by Craig D at 11:20

By now you all know that one of the strongest rumours and indeed the worst kept secret in gaming of recent times has been confirmed. Epic's Gears of War will finally be coming to the PC in time for Christmas, with new multiplayer maps, a new mp game mode, the usual Epic support for a game editor, five new single player campaigns and DirectX 10 support.

Co-op play via Games for Windows Live is also promised though at present that means Vista only, XP users shouldn't worry though, the game will run on DirectX 9 if required. Here's the fist batch of screenshots from the PC version.

Lots of people loved the multiplayer but I have to say I thought the single player was boring and repetative and just very average.

I thought the singleplayer was great fun but the multiplayer dull shite actually...
