  • Split-Screen Co-op Confirmed for Gears of War 4 PC

    The PC version of Gears of War 4 will include split-screen co-op support. This should be great for those that have their computers hooked up to their TVs for a little couch co-op action. Mike Rayner, the game's Technical Director, says that they added this feature because of how many people wanted it in Gears of War Ultimate Edition.
    “From a development standpoint, it is quite difficult to support,” Rayner said, “we have to deal with multiple inputs, we have to deal with focus, we have to deal with UI placement.” That extra work—especially when having to also consider all the resolutions and aspect ratios a PC can have—may be why most big games nowadays don’t typically support split-screen co-op. Rayner continued by saying that “developers have got to put some effort into it to do it right, it’s not just something you can tack on.”

    The game will also feature cross-platform play between the Xbox One and Windows 10 releases. This does not include competitive PvP but will be used for the co-op campaign, Horde mode, multiplayer vs. AI mode, and multiplayer vs. mode in private matches only.
