Developer The Coalition has revealed just about everything PC gamers would want to know about Gears 5 on PC, including the full PC specs required, all the settings PC gamers can tweak the game with and much more. One of the things that Gears 5 on PC really need if you ask many PC gamers is a Steam release and Gears 5 on PC will come to Steam, but you will need an Xbox Live Account but that is free and you don’t need a Gold Subscription to play the game’s multiplayer as you do on Xbox One. That’s a good tradeoff if you ask me.
Probably the most important thing is the system specs required for Gears 5 on PC. The Coalition has revealed the full, final specs for the game including a minimum, recommended and ideal preset. Check it out below.
