With Gears of War 5 dropping on the PC in September, there are many wondering how it will compare to the Xbox version in terms of graphics and playability. While Gears 4 was well received for it’s many features (customisation being a big part of those features) many ask if Gears 5 will follow in the same foot steps.

Speaking of new features, Gears 5 for Steam will require an Xbox live account. You won’t however need to have gold to play the game online. Personally, I do find this to be a problem due to the fact that you shouldn’t have to have an account for a PC game linked to your home console. It feels as though that would just make the Xbox redundant.

Alos, it seems the developers don’t feel you should be allowed a free copy for your Xbox One in this case, or a copy for the windows store version. Cross-buying the game would have been a unique feature, and would have probably boosted sales.

Along with the above news, developers revealed the minimum requirements for running the game. Below are the listed minimum,and recommended system requirements. So if you are running a copy of Potatoes 98′ you may want to upgrade within the next few months:
