At E3 2018, Microsoft announced Gears 5 for Xbox One and PC. The trailer looks spectacular and focuses on Kate's journey to uncover her connection to the "Locust" monsters. However, another aspect that stood out was the improved visuals.
Not only are the textures better, but it seems like the frame rate will also see a massive boost even when it comes to the game's campaign. While it's unclear what the frame rate will be on the standard Xbox One, the Xbox One X should reached 60 FPS.
@CoalitionGears is pushing @UnrealEngine to 60 FPS on all modes on Xbox One X — you bet it looks great!— Guy Welch (@guywelch2000) June 11, 2018
Thanks for coming by the green room after the #XboxE3 briefing. Was great catching up. https://t.co/V8J1iAL9Be
Recently, The Coalition's Rod Fergusson discussed the game with Guy Welch, Xbox's Marketing Director. Welch confirmed that the title was targeting 60 FPS for all modes on Xbox One X. That means that even the campaign should run at 60 FPS this time around.
Gears of War 4 only managed to achieve 4K 60 FPS during multiplayer as the campaign was locked to 30 FPS. It's great to see The Coalition optimize Unreal Engine 4 so that it manages to hit a higher frame rate even during the visually-demanding story.
However, keep in mind that at this point the 60 FPS campaign is only a promise and the game is probably more than a year away. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more. Gears of War 4 was a technical marvel on the original Xbox One so if anyone can push Unreal Engine 4 further, it's The Coalition.

Sony's PlayStation 5 reveal came with some big caveats, and one of the most overlooked ones is the fact that games will be more expensive, seemingly across the board. Should Microsoft and Xbox jump on that train as well?
