At Gamescom 2016, Microsoft has shown off Gears of War 4 PC in glorious 4K, and has revealed the minimum, recommended and ideal PC specs.

At the Xbox show floor, Gears of War 4 is playable in glorious 4K. The Windows 10 PC version of the shooter supports comprehensive video settings, increased texture resolutions, and dynamic resolution support up to 4K.

Starting today on the gamescom show floor, we’re excited to give fans their first opportunity to play Gears of War 4 on Windows 10 PC. Gears of War 4 is powered by a completely new rendering engine, with the Windows 10 version supporting comprehensive video settings, increased texture resolutions, dynamic resolution support up to 4K and more.

In this short gameplay demo through the “Rescue” chapter of Gears of War 4, our heroes JD, Kait and Del are chasing a large unknown enemy through an old COG fort. Along the way, they encounter two fierce Swarm enemies – Drones and Pouncers – for the first time, and have to battle their way through them before it’s too late. You can watch the video above or view it on YouTube.

Additionally, the game’s Win 10 PC specs have been announced, and it seems that the ‘ideal spec’ requires quite a beast. An R7 260X/750 Ti with 2GB of VRAM is required to be able to play the game, but Microsoft recommends an R9 290 X/RX 480 or Geforce GTX 1060 with 4GB of VRAM. The ideal spec requires at least a Radeon R9 Fury X with 4GB of VRAM, while a Geforce 980 Ti or GTX 1080 with 6GB of VRAM is required on the NVIDIA side.
