Gears of War 4 will get support for the Xbox One X as a new update will be released for it once the console launches on November 7th. However even if you don’t have the Xbox One X, the update can still be pre-loaded ahead of the release of the console.
The download size of this update is 27 GB and it can be downloaded on your Xbox One. The combined file size for Gears of War 4 after this new update is more than 100 GB although this also includes ultra quality textures for the 4K resolution on Xbox One X.
Microsoft has recently revealed the features that will be coming to Gears of War 4 in the new update. They have confirmed two different rendering modes will be added offering 60 fps in campaign o horde mode, or native 4k visuals at 30 fps.
Up to 60FPS For Ultra Smooth Gameplay
We’re excited to announce Xbox One X owners will have two Preferred Rendering Options to choose from in Gears of War 4 – Visuals and Performance!
Put framerate first. For the first time ever, Gears of War will play at up to 60fps in 1080p in Campaign and Horde – all including higher resolution textures and some of the new enhanced graphical features available in Visuals mode.
Push graphical fidelity to the max. This mode uses Ultra Quality Textures, a wealth of new and improved graphical features all at 4K resolution (3840×2160) thanks to the power of Xbox One X. You’ll experience the same frame rates you’ve come to expect from Gears of War 4 – 30fps for Campaign and Horde .
In both Rendering modes, Versus will run at a rock-solid 4K 60FPS (with adaptive resolution scaling).
Gears of War 4 is available now for the Xbox One and PC.
