No matter which settings you will be using, running Gears of War 4 on PC will be no easy task. All versions require the Windows 10 anniversary update, and dedicating 80GB worth of space to a single game involves some self sacrifice.

The reason for the large requirements for ideal settings is Gears of War 4’s ability to run in 4K. Not only will the Xbox One version of Gears 4 play in 4K through the new Xbox One S, but the PC version also supports 4K resolution.

Along with the PC requirements, Microsoft released a gameplay trailer for Gears of War 4 in glorious 4K. The company said the trailer was captured on PC with a GTX 1080 installed. The 10-minute trailer can be viewed below.

Gears of War 4 is set to launch Oct. 11 for PC and Xbox One.
