Waiting to play Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on PC? Here are the system requirements

We’ve known since last summer that Gears of War: Ultimate Edition was coming to the PC following its launch on the Xbox One, but we haven’t had many more details than that. Yesterday a listing for the game briefly appeared on the Windows Store, but was quickly pulled back down.

While the listing was still up, the folks at Windows Central managed to capture a screen grab, including the system requirements for the PC version of the game. Since Microsoft has pulled these back down, we can’t be assured they won’t change before the game is released, but if you’re wondering what kind of hardware you’ll need to pick your Lancer back up on the PC, see below.

In addition to Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, more Xbox One games are coming to the PC in the coming months. Killer Instinct is coming next month, with Quantum Break following up in April. As reported earlier this month, Microsoft may also be considering bringing Forza Motorsport 4, Gears of War 4, and Scalebound to the PC as well, but those titles haven’t been confirmed.
