We compared Gears of War 4 on PC and Xbox One

It's kind of gorgeous either way

Simone de Rochefort has been producing & hosting YouTube videos for Polygon since 2016. She co-directed the upcoming documentary The Great Game: The Making of Spycraft.

We played Gears of War 4 on Xbox One and Windows PC to suss out any differences. The PC version offers full controller support, as well as mouse and keyboard.

It also has options aplenty for tweaking your graphics settings. On the Xbox One you don't get that much flexibility, but there is one perk. At least, there is if you're playing on the Xbox One S. Gears of War 4 looks truly stunning in HDR and that's only available on Microsoft's latest, smallest console.
