The Coalition studio head Rod Fergusson shared some interesting details for upcoming Xbox One exclusive cover shooter Gears of War 4.
Rod stated that The Coalition learned a lot on developing for the Xbox One when making Gears of War Ultimate Edition. As a result, Rod is committing to the promise that it will be at a stable 60 FPS.
These are Rod’s exact words:
Delivering [with Ultimate Edition] the first 60fps multiplayer experience in franchise history really taught us a lot about what it means to have a 60fpsculture on the team and we’re leveraging that experience for Gears of War 4.
Rod also promises that Gears of War 4 is going to be a graphical showcase for the console.
Rod also talked about how the production of Gears of War Ultimate Edition is helping shape their work on Gears of War 4. Rather than make an ‘accurate’ simulation of previous titles under Epic Games, The Coalition plans to capture the spirit of the originals. This also means they are not hesitating to add in new elements and features.
Gears of War 4 will be released on Xbox One in Q4 2016. Microsoft revealed plans to make a fourth game in the series in an issue of Game Informer way back in 2012. However, it was not officially announced until June of last year.
