Gears of War 4 PC Won’t Support HDR at Launch
It could be added later though.
While much has been made of the PS4’s new HDR support – which also improves the quality of visuals on the PS4 Pro – Microsoft’s Xbox One S will also offer HDR support for its upcoming games.
Gears of War 4, unfortunately, won’t offer HDR support on the PC. On NeoGAF, Adam Fletcher, director of community for The Coalition, stated that, “Gears 4 has HDR on Xbox One S. It does not support it on PC. PC just started incorporating HDR support on cards recently and many monitors don’t have the functionality. The PC version does support full 4K, Ultrawide, etc.”
Fletcher did note that if there’s enough demand for the same from PC users, it could arrive later. “I agree some PC users connect into HDR tvs but as of now we do not have support for it. We may incorporate it in a later update though if demand grows.”
Gears of War 4 is out on October 11th. Check out the launch trailer here.
