Gears Tactics launched earlier this year on PC, and in less than a month, it will become available on consoles as well. On its console release, it will be available across several devices, and now, The Coalition have revealed details on what frame rates and resolutions the tactics game will tackle on each of them.
The developer has confirmed to The Verge that on the Xbox Series X, Gears Tactics will run at 4K and 60 FPS. For cinematics, players will have a choice between 30 FPS and 60 FPS. “Not for any performance reason but more for just personal taste,” explains Cam McRae, technical director at The Coalition.
Meanwhile, on the Xbox Series S, the game will run at 1440p and 60 FPS. On the Xbox One X, players will have the option for either 4K / 30 FPS or 1440p / 60 FPS. Finally, on a base Xbox One, the game will run at 1080p at 30 FPS>
Though the frame rate and performance figures for the game on the Xbox Series S and the Xbox One X, McRae says that for several reasons, Gears Tactics still looks better on the former. “It is better on the Series S,” says McRae. “It’s visually better — same resolution, same frame rate, but the CPU is so much better in the Series S and the Series X that we have a lot more ability to just draw more stuff. Even though the GPU is responsible for drawing, we still have to get it there off the CPU, and on the Xbox One X you’ll see that the visual quality is not quite as high as it is on the Series S in the performance mode.”
Gears Tactics will release for consoles on November 10, and will also bring plenty of new content to the game.
