For all the Gears of War fans out there, Microsoft has just confirmed the minimum requirements to run Gears of War 4‘s PC version as well as some juicy 4K gameplay footage. Microsoft has not spared any details with this update, giving gamers a comprehensive three tier list of minimum and ideal requirements to run the game. Regardless of all this information, if your system doesn’t have the newest windows 10 update and 80 GB’s of hard drive space than you might have to upgrade before you enter into any fire fights. The lowest tier only requires a GTX 750 Ti or R7 260X but if you are planning on playing without any hiccups and decide to go for the ideal settings you are required to have a GTX 970 Ti, GTX 1080, or R9 Fury X, and a solid state drive.
