Gears 5 to receive Technical Test this month - PC system requirements revealed

On July 19th, Microsoft and The Coalition plans to host a "Gear of War Technical Test" for Gears 5, enabling both Windows 10 and Xbox One users to play through several sections of the game, including the game's Arcade, Escalation, King of the Hill, Bootcamp and Tour of Duty multiplayer modes.   

This technical test will be split between two timeframes, between July 19th and 22nd and between July 26th and 29th. The test will be available to Xbox Game Pass subscribers on PC or Xbox One, though access will also be available to those who pre-order the game digitally or through participating retailers.

This technical test will allow Microsoft to stress test their servers and allow them to test the game over a wide variety of PC hardware configurations, giving the game's developers access to valuable feedback which could be used to improve the game.   

Below are the PC system requirements for Gear 5's Technical Test, which are expected to be similar to Gear 5's final PC system requirements. Expect storage requirements to be much higher for the final game, as Gears of War 4 can occupy over 100GB of storage space. More information about the technical test is available here
