Gears of War 4 is set to release on October 11 for Xbox One and PC.
It will be the first Gears of War game created to be playable at a 4K resolution on PC, but in order to achieve that you’re going to need some serious graphics hardware inside your rig. So not being a company to miss an opportunity, Nvidia has kicked off a promotion that gets you the game for free (twice!).
For a limited time, purchasing selected versions of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 or top-of-the-line GTX 1080 graphics card will unlock a free downloadable copy of Gears of War 4 for Windows 10. And as Microsoft has made GoW4 an Xbox Play Anywhere title, by default you will also be entitled to a free copy of the game on Xbox One.
Here’s some Gears of War 4 gameplay running at 4K resolution :
The recommended spec for Gears of War 4 on PC requires a GTX 1060, which is the graphics card spec below the 1070, but gets you a screen resolution of 2560 x 1440. For 3840 x 2160 you’re going to need a GTX 1080. If your display is 1080p, then you won’t need a GTX 1060 or higher to play the game. Nvidia recommends at least a GTX 750 Ti at that resolution.
To find out which cards qualify in this promotion head on over to the GeForce website and select your country. If you already own one of the qualifying cards, then visit the redemption web page and enter your coupon code.
