Rod Ferguson, the producer of Gears of War 4, said in the most recent issue of Official Xbox Magazine that the studio working on Gears of War Ultimate edition (The Coalition) is approaching Gears of War 4 with regards to graphics.
Aside from delivering 60fps multiplayer for the first time in Gears of War history, he talked about how Gears of War 4 will be a graphical showcase for the Xbox One.
Delivering [with Ultimate Edition] the first 60fps multiplayer experience in franchise history really taught us a lot about what it means to have a 60fps culture on the team and we’re leveraging that experience for Gears of War 4. Like how the original Gears of War was a visual showcase for the Xbox 360, Gears of War 4 will be a graphical showcase for the Xbox One.
This isn’t the first time that a Xbox One game will have 60fps multiplayer; Halo 5 Guardians is capable of delivering steady 60 frames per second, but with a little trick. The game uses Dynamic resolution, allowing the resolution to go up or down in order to achieve steady 60fps. We would be disappointed if that’s the case with Gears of War 4.
We’ll check that out later this year when Gears of War 4 gets released sometime during this fall, with a beta test that’s going to be held before the game’s release.
