Gears of War 4 will be to Xbox One what the original was to Xbox 360, it terms of visual fidelity.


When Microsoft first showed Gears of War 4 at E3 last year, it looked good. When it finally releases later this year, it will be one of the best looking games on Xbox One, according to studio head Rod Fergusson.

Fergusson, who worked on all three mainline Xbox 360 games, told Official Xbox Magazine, “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.”

Fergusson hinted at Gears of War 4 multiplayer running at 60 frames-per-second, but didn’t outright confirm it.

“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.”

Gears of War 4 is due for a multiplayer beta this spring, with a full release in the fall.
