It could be added later though.

Gears of War 4

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.

    let me be the first to say that while the media ignored the xbox one s being the first HDR console on the market , and overhyped the ps4 , ps4 slim and ps4 pro for having it, I can sit here today and tell you that after testing 2k17 on both ps4 and xbox one s
    Sony version of hdr is …..I don’t know what it is but neither tv I tried recognize it as HDR…

      That’s interesting. PC has had “HDR” since Half Life: Lost Coast, which apparently is something very different from the consumer version we have now.

      I have not bit on a 4K panel, yet. A question (or two) — have you played a regular XB1 or PS4 on the same 4K TV? How did the upscale image look?

      Um incorrect …half life HDR was rendering
      Hdr today is about color and picture quality …
      Two totally different things here .

      Yes, I think you misread my post.

      Anyway, how did the picture look on the 4K TV using a launch console (PS4 or XB1)?

      I can’t really tell them apart to be honest….
      They still look the same just the colors pop more and picture just look a bit crisper.
