Digital Foundry: Gears 5 PC: One Of The All-Time Greatest PC Ports?
Yeah, I'm pretty tempted to pick this up. My only reservation is that I haven't played Gears since 3 on Xbox 360 and I'm not sure if 4 preceded this game chronologically or what. So I might go pick that up on PC first and then this in a few weeks or something when hopefully Nvidia will have their updated drivers out for it. It seems like my RTX 2080 should be able to play this at mostly high/ultra settings at 1440P Ultrawide at 60 FPS from what I'm gathering there. I love the inclusion of DRS though and have believed that all PC games should have that as an option considering consoles have been doing it this whole generation basically. I wouldn't mind using that even with the minor frame time issue they point out there, as I doubt I'm as sensitive to it as they are.
I'm picking up a new 4K TV soon too (OLED or QLED, not sure yet), so I may try playing this on there via my Shield TV or Steam Link too to see which experience I like better; Ultrawide with KB/Mouse or with HDR and a controller (which I don't mind using for 3rd person shooters).
