Gears of War 4

With Microsoft announcing the Xbox One Scorpio at this year’s E3 there has been a lot of speculation and excitement about the capabilities of the new hardware. There are a wide range of opinions from game developers about the Scorpio and today the technical wizards from Digital Foundry published an interview with Mike Rayner, Technical Director for The Coalition.

In the interview, Rayner shared his thoughts on the new hardware stating that they are ready to fully leverage the power of the Scorpio due to their scaleable engine. “For Gears development, we are in a really good position to leverage Project Scorpio to its fullest while continuing a no-compromise approach for all platforms we currently ship the game on,” he said. “We have invested in scalable features in our engine to support a broad range of GPUs and performance profiles for PC and Console. We have authored our content at 4K, which allows us to show higher resolutions with increased source content detail on the highest end GPUs.”

“As a developer I find it very attractive having a universal platform to target and optimise our game across multiple Windows Devices: Xbox One, Xbox One S, Project Scorpio, and Windows 10. With the universal platform, we can do this in a manner that allows everyone to play together over Xbox Live without compromising our ability to push each device to its full potential while leaving none of our fans behind, no matter what device they play on.”

Given that Gears of War 4 launches a full year before the Scorpio, it will be interesting to see whether the game gets an update next year. Gears of War 4 already runs at 1080p and 30fps (single player) on the Xbox One so perhaps The Coalition can get it to run at 4K/30fps or at 1080p/60fps with enhanced visual effects on the new console.

    This is how devs supposed to approach their game engine with scalability. Looking forward

    • Mark

      Yup, I’m betting Phil’s encouraging devs who release their games in the near future to have a scalable engine in place….

  • Mr Xrat

    The previous framerates and texture quality at 4K, as expected. Just gotta wait another year and a half, Xgimps.

    • ih8pa1n

      Oh nooooo… Its Mr. Asshat trying to troll another xbox article….

    • Mr Xrat

      Cry more, unpaid beta tester. 🙂

      Settle down, pony.

    • Nintengods

      The delusion from the $DF is hilarious since they are just beta testing for PC for free as well. Or getting the worse versions of No Man’s Sky.

      NX will be guaranteed to not lose exclusives unlike the PS4 32X and Xbone ram pack. Kinda pathetic to buy a console for exclusives when it has none.

    • DA-ROOSTER

      how’s the weakling PS4 NEO doing ? The funny thing is the NEO is already obliterated by the Xbox Scorpio before it’s even released lol

    • Mr Xrat

      How’s the no exclusives Shitpio with specs that’ll struggle to do 4K, Kirk? Oh wait, it’s 18 long months away. Sleep tight. 🙂

    • Psionicinversion

      18 months hahaha you lose all credibility when you cant do basic maths

    • Mr Xrat

      Instead of a stupidly long time, it’s another stupidly long time. Nice own goal. 🙂

    • Nintengods

      And $ony Drones have to look forward to a console that will just move the settings up to high at the same sub-30FPS at 1080P for another $399 with no worthwhile exclusives.

      Cow and lem tears in the same cocktail are delicious.

    • Eagles83

      Difficulty in pushing 4K………..as opposed to what? The Neo which will be weaker at the hardware level or PC?

      Also what is your deal with always bringing up the wait time? Don’t get me wrong it nice to see that you know how to read a calendar but I don’t see the point. PlayStation users will be waiting even longer for 4k gaming that isn’t upscaled.

    • Mr Xrat

      Neo won’t be doing native 4K, don’t you worry your little head. 🙂

      Point is the Xbone is such a piece of dogshit all you have to long forward to a incomplete spec blueprint. Oh well.

    • Eagles83

      Not true. I’m running 4k right now on my gtx 1080. I just think you are an idiot for hating on the Xbox One for no apparent reason. Same as other idiots hating on PS4. What you are saying makes absolutely no sense and doesn’t include any reasons. Just dumb comment after dumb comment. If you can muster some intelligible thought for why you feel this way then we can have a conversation but as of now you are just acting like a bitter troll that wasn’t hugged enough as a child.

    • BelAirBoss

      Not for me…I can play Gears on my pc, which will be the superior version of Gears of war, and all of Sony’s exceptional exclusives on my ps4. I win.

    • Jonathan George Anaya

      No, the Corporations Win. MS gets Your Gears 4 Money, and Sony’s PS4 Exclusives help Keep Sony from Going Bankrupt. Win Win

    • BelAirBoss

      I’m a shareholder in both, and corporations are beholden to investors, so………

    • Nintengods

      So you made two terrible investments not even including the underpowered P$4. Thanks for letting us know.

    • BelAirBoss

      I have many investments….I’m sure you don’t understand. That is typical of your type. Clueless.

    • Nintengods

      Yawn. $ony drones pretending they own shares in companies. So deluded and sad.

    • BelAirBoss

      Typical response from a sad sack without a pot to p*ss in. You have to laugh at this type. The only bond he’s accustomed to is the type the bail bondsman serves and floats up when his broke a$$ needs bail money……

    • Nintengods

      Confirmed for a 12 year old in their basement fantasising they own $ony shares since they can only resort to calling other people poor.

      Where’s the PS4 games Mr. Investor?

    • BelAirBoss

      Sad sack confirmed…LOL. Yeah, you’re done here. Next.

    • Nintengods

      Fraud exposed. $ony drones remain delusional.

    • Eagles83

      Anyone else find it ironic that the Nintendo fan is talking about other systems being underpowered? Don’t get me wrong I like Nintendo as much as the next person but this totally isn’t the argument you should use.

    • Nintengods

      LMAO.

      $ony has no exclusives unless you like eating garbage.

      You want good exclusives. You buy a Nintendo console.

    • BelAirBoss

      Said the nobody, unable to play many of the Sony titles that have been among the most highly ranked of any generation. LOL. These people are pretty pathetic. It is to laugh.

    • Eagles83

      Yeah that Nintengods guy is as crazy as Xrat. The PS4 has had a few great exclusives but so far they don’t have any among the highest. Currently the Uncharted 4 and Bloodbourne games are sitting at 92 and 93 which are up there but still below several past generations best exclusive games. I found exclusives for PS3, 360, original Xbox, N64, Dreamcast, GameCube, Wii, PS2, and PS1 that were ranked higher so in general I would say this gen is still underperforming in comparison rather than putting it on the high end.

    • BelAirBoss

      These tiny testicle nobodies are upset they can’t play them, so they downplay them. Typical behavior from the unwashed masses, yearning to play for free.

    • Nintengods

      What titles? Uncharted Bore? Bloodboring?

      Create more fanfiction $ony drone. Nintendo’s already won.

    • Eagles83

      Superior version on pc can most of the time be the case but also requires commitment from the devs. I remember thinking I was going to get the best version of Arkham Knight and was I ever mistaken.

    • BelAirBoss

      Yes, there are some exceptions…Watch_Dogs initially was another one, but for the most part that is not the case.

    • Eagles83

      Yeah I saw that article as well. I hope they pull it off. Most devs honestly do and those games are the exception rather than the rule.

    • Draycko

      Arkham Knight on PC is the superior version. Wasn’t at launch, sure, but the game runs fine now. I am running the game at close to ultra settings (Those physX settings are killer on V-RAM!).

    • Bad wolf

      #Xbox the best box, and stay mad Sony Pony.

    • Mr Xrat

      Ratbox isn’t even the best brick. 🙂

    • Michael

      You mad cause sony just got beat by Nintendo in revenue…lol Still awaiting greatness..lol

    • Mr Xrat

      Good job confirming you’re another dumb Xgimp who doesn’t know what a market cap is. 🙂

    • Michael

      Yea, and Sony doesn’t have a market cap…lol I heard they are donating blood to get money…lol

    • Mr Xrat

      Yep, not a clue in the world. Try harder, little Xgimp. 🙂

    • Michael

      lol..yea, we all know sony is going bankrupt. It doesn’t matter if they sell a trillion ps4s…lol

    • Nintengods

      At least you admit P$4 is a useless brick for once.

    • kma99

      In another year the neo still wont be able to run 4k and the wait for you is even longer. How many more accounts are you gonna get banned

    • Nintengods

      So what does that make Neo. High settings and sub-30FPS using the same terrible CPU and an underpowered GPU again?

      I don’t know who’s more delusional. The Xbots looking for 4K or the $ony Drones honestly thinking the PS4 32X is going to give them 1080P 60FPS on everything on the same weak bottlenecked system.

    • Tomaterrrx

      Fake upvote game is strong. Go comment on Playstation articles.

    • Eagles83

      I guess you can’t read or missed this part “increased source content detail on the highest end GPUs”. This would mean it wouldn’t be the same texture quality at 4K. Funny all the hate you have for something you supposedly don’t care about. I think you doth protest too much.

    • Mr Xrat

      On PC. Well done.

  • Jonathan George Anaya

    Wow, I’d HATE to be a Phony Gamer right now! The Scorpio has a 400% Power Gap Over the Neo than the PS4 had over the X1…

    PS4 Neo= PS1 ; Scorpio = Xbox 360

    The Power Difference is REAL

    And Gears will take advantage of that extra power 😉

    • Nintengods

      Quit being delusional, Xdrone.

      NX will have better games.

      $ony and M$ will have nothing

    • One With Shadows

      “The power difference is REAL.”

      Until you plug it in, thats where Sony will triumph.

    • Nintengods

      A Triumph at getting another beatdown by Nintendo. I know.

    • Mr Xrat

      This is the same drip who thought 4K was 4000p.

      The previous framerates and previous awful textures at 4K, LOL!

    • Nintengods

      This is even more amusing when the $ony drones are about to pay for the previous framerates and awful textures still at 1080P and only getting a bump from PC medium to PC high.

      Just proving more and more that Cows are just as stupid as lems.

      Fill a bucket with your tears so I can savour them when NX is announced.
