Gears 5 released last year, and by and large showed that the Gears of War franchise was still alive and kicking. Releasing for both the Xbox One and PC, the game was already technically impressive. The title will also be coming to Microsoft’s next generation console, the Xbox Series X. And today we got some details about what to expect.

At a stream from Inside Unreal, The Coalition broke down what all to look for with the next generation version. It looks pretty impressive, with bumps in frame rate and resolution for real time cinematics, with hopes to approach 120 FPS for multiplayer. The visual improvements for the PC port’s Ultra setting are being brought over, even going above it in some elements, having 50% higher particle counts than PC Ultra settings. You can see the technical breaks down below.

Gears 5 is available now for Xbox One and PC, with the latest Operation now live. No word on when the Xbox Series X version will be available, if it will be its own native version or simply as an update for the Xbox One version. Either way, it’s been confirmed to be eligible for Smart Delivery between the two.

  • Contact Shadows
    This allows extremely realistic shadowing as each pixel on screen traces back to the light source to eliminate any shadow biasing artifacts or fill in missing shadows.
  • Screen Space Global Illumination gated from UE4 4.24
    This feature allows us to achieve full real-time GI at 60fps/4k.
    SSGI’s AO pass replaces the more traditional SSAO giving a much more naturalistic broad real-time AO.
  • Higher particle counts.
    Our particle counts are 50% higher than PC Ultra Spec
  • Real Time Cinematics in 4K 60FPS
    Xbox One Cinematics were 4K 30FPS
  • Investigating 12OFPS Multiplayer support
