Gears Of War 4 is just about to go wild thanks to its release date set to October 11, 2016. While we still have a few days to spare before the final release, there some more information that The Coalition revealed to PCGamer. Technical Director, Mike Rayner revealed that the PC Version of Gears Of War 4 would have a co-op split screen mode for the campaign mode in Gears Of War 4.
Mike Rayner explains:
“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.”
We couldn’t agree more with the facts Mike Rayner explained to PCGamer. However, regarding the crossplay between the Xbox One and PC, Xbox One and Windows 10 PC Gamers will be able to cross-play together in all modes except multi-player which was the most disturbing factor that was on my min when Microsoft announced the cross-play feature and the Xbox Play Anywhere program.
Gears Of War 4 is set to release on the 11th October, 2016 for Windows 10 Gaming PCs and Xbox One.
