Here's what you need to run Gears Tactics on PC

Gears Tactics is a PC-only entry into the Gears of War franchise, moving the series into the world of tactical turn-based combat, delivering an experience that's somewhat similar to XCOM. 

On PC, Gears Tactics will release on April 28th on Xbox Game Pass for PC, the Windows 10 Store and on Steam. Gears Tactics will also be the first PC game to be optimised for Intel's Xe-LP graphics architecture, making the game easy to run on both laptops and desktop PCs. 

With the game being one month away from its launch, Microsoft has released detailed system requirements for Gears Tactics, highlighting the game's ability to run on notebooks with integrated graphics as well as high-end desktop systems. 

Gears Tactics is designed to be highly scalable on PC, which is great news for users of high-end and more modest gaming systems. On PC, Gears Tactics will support Variable Rate Shading and Asynchronous Compute, both of which are features of Intel's Xe-LP graphics architecture. Both of these features are designed to increase Gears Tactics' performance on PC, assuming that your hardware supports the function.  

Microsoft has confirmed that Intel will bundle their hardware with copies of Gears Tactics later this year.
