Free matchmaking DLC maps
If you want to sit down, pick an online mode, and automatically land in versus or co-op modes with other players, you'll never need to buy a DLC pack to be matched with every single other online player. If you want to load a "custom" match with friends and pick options like maps, weapons, and tweaks, on the other hand, you'll have to pay to choose any map other than the ten shipping in the game (which include nine brand-new maps and the longtime fan favorite Gridlock). So long as one player has the paid map, everyone else can join in for free.
Plenty of graphical options
Dynamic resolution scaling (turn on/off, pick a percentage)
Enable async compute
Enable tiled resources
Lock/unlock frame limit
Disable vsync
Field of view
Display performance stats
Character texture detail
World texture detail
Effects texture detail
Lighting texture detail
Texture filtering (up to 16x anisotropic)
Anti-aliasing quality
Temporal AA sharpening
Foliage draw distance
World level of detail
Character level of detail
Motion blur quality
Motion blur intensity
Light shaft quality
Light scattering quality
Lens flare quality
Bloom quality
Shadow quality
Capsule shadow quality
Screen space shadow quality
Ambient occlusion quality
Ambient occlusion intensity
Post process quality
Screen space reflections
Enable environment reflections
Enable refractions
Particle spawn rate
Sharpening
...and a separate menu for "Real-time cinematics settings.
4K impressions
To be fair, of course, I had been spoiled. My first impressions of the game's latest preview build came courtesy of a high-end PC decked out with a GTX 1080 graphics card, an i7 processor, 32GB of DDR4 RAM, and a low-latency 4K monitor. With nearly every setting at "Ultra," I was getting a locked 60fps in all modes. Not only that, but these settings were clearly exceeding what the Xbox One could muster, with higher-res textures and much more noticeable bloom and light-contrast effects, along with more object density and more intense particle swarms.

"DirectX 12 is a big part of how we're able to get additional performance out of the PC," Technical Director Mike Raynor told Ars. "The DX12 graphics API takes away a bunch of layers from the developer and hardware. It's letting us have more direct control over what the GPU's doing... We've completely parallelized the rendering system, meaning we're utilizing and running more CPU cores. One big focus we had was to lower the simulation cost to give headroom for the GPU. A lot of games out there have monster GPU but get framelocked because you're CPU bound. There's a huge upper range we support with what we've done."

I also jacked up settings beyond my rig's near-ultra default and dropped the resolution to 1440p, which still looked gorgeous and rocked a 60fps refresh. I didn't have as much luck pushing some of the settings into the menus' crazy-high "insane" setting, which might be because, according to Raynor, that setting has been offered for future systems and SLI power users: "The game will scale with new hardware that will come out," he said. "You need a really high spec to get in there. It looks awesome, but it's very GPU-hungry." (While I couldn't test Raynor's assertions that the game has been optimized to make the most of SLI graphics card performance, he insisted that users would see substantial boosts if they double-card.)

Wonder if local has this promo.
Microsoft is teaming up with Nvidia to give away free copies of Gears of War 4. If you purchase a GTX 1070 or GTX 1080 as a graphics card, part of a system, or inside a laptop then you'll get a free copy of Gears of War 4. The promotion runs from today until October 30th, and as the game is Xbox Play Anywhere you'll get a copy of the PC version and Xbox One variant for free.

Gear Packs are the new way to unlock customization content and more in Gears of War 4. Gear Packs are acquired via Credits, the new in-game currency for Gears of War 4. As you play online Versus or Horde, everything you do is earning you Credits - you just have to play!

Credits can then be used to acquire new Gear Packs, with different Credit values based on the kind of Cards they contain. If you’re short on time or simply want to accelerate the growth of your Card collection, Gear Packs can also be purchased with real world currency.

There's a ton of content for fans to discover - from Characters to Weapon Skins, Horde Skills to Bounties and more! At launch, Gear Packs will come in a variety of flavors with a specific focus for each offering to help you acquire the types of Cards you want.
