Unbelievably, Gears 5 will run using Win 7 on Steam!

Break out the doorstops, folks! It appears that even the lowliest of ancient systems will be able to run The Coalition’s Gears 5! According to one savvy Twitter user, the Steam PC minimum specs only require WINDOWS 7! That’s right — not 8, not 10 — 7!

Keep in mind that this doesn’t mean the Microsoft Store PC version. It specifically states that Windows 10 is a requirement for the game even as the minimum.
