Gears Dev: Xbox Series X Is 'Certainly Powerful Enough' For 120FPS

Gears 5 developer The Coalition appeared as part of a lengthy Unreal Engine livestream yesterday, and talked more about how the optimised version of Gears 5 will perform on Xbox Series X.

Firstly, the studio explained that it has brought over its entire Ultra PC spec feature set to the next-gen version, including higher resolution textures, higher quality Depth of Field, extremely far draw distances and more.

It was also noted that Gears 5's cinematics will run in real time at 4K, 60 frames-per-second, which is a boost over the 30fps on Xbox One X. Additional improvements include contact shadows and higher particle counts.

And finally, the developer confirmed that it's investigating adding 120fps multiplayer support for Gears 5 on Xbox Series X, explaining that the system is "certainly powerful enough to do it." Nothing is being announced officially right now, but it's something the studio is "excited to hopefully support."

Which of these improvements are you most looking forward to on Series X? Let us know in the comments.
