Microsoft and The Coalition have revealed the preliminary Gears 5 system requirements ahead of this month’s impending tech test. While these specs accompany the game’s test version, they should provide a solid idea of what to expect when the Gears 5 release date hits – and it looks like we’re in for a game that will scale well across a wide variety of hardware.

At the low end, Gears 5 only needs an i3 Skylake or FX-6000 processor, and you can get away with something as low-end as a GTX 760 or R9 280 as your GPU. These specs don’t specify what performance targets to expect for that hardware, but it’s always nice to see a triple-A title account for players on lower-end PCs.

If you want the top-end spec, the developers have much higher expectations for “ideal” machines. That’ll be a Ryzen 7 or i7 Skylake CPU paired with a Radeon VIII or RTX 2080 graphics card. Clearly, the game is built to take advantage of an impressive range of hardware.
