10 Minutes of Gears of War 4 – 4K Gameplay


Gears of War 4K.

Our rough and ready gang of COGs shoot and chainsaw their way through creepy graveyards and war-ravaged churches, battling tons of Swarm, including two new enemies: humanoid Drones, and lithe, animalistic Pouncers. It’s all shot in 4K resolution, i.e, ‘Super-Duper-High-Definition’ and it definitely looks the part.


Along with the debut gameplay, official PC system requirements also surfaced, which you can take a look at below.


Both minimum specs for AMD and Nvidia users are forgiving enough, meaning those with budget rigs have nothing to fear. Recommended specs are naturally a step up, and require mid-range components; notably, a more powerful processor and GPU. This’ll net you smooth 1080p performance and provide decent 1440p capabilities too, and if you’re looking to upgrade, both the recently released AMD Radeon RX 480 and Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 GPUs offer great price to performance ratios. A sound investment for, not only Gears, but entry level VR and quality 1080p experiences in a slew of current – and future – titles.

Now, the Ideal Spec. By ‘Ideal’ they mean top-notch 4K buttery frames, which effectively requires some of the most expensive hardware from last generation, and even this generation. 16gb of RAM as well? Unless you’ve got a 4K enabled monitor (no) and a frankly outrageous amount of disposable income to blow on a titanic, monster PC (again, no) – stick to the far more achievable recommended specs and you’ll be good to curb stomp.

Gears of War 4 releases for Xbox One, PS4 and PC on October 10.
