TRUE 4K EXPERIENCE
Get ready to experience unmatched clarity, richness and details with true 4K visuals (3840x2160) in our Visuals Rendering Mode. Even if you're playing on a 1080p screen, you'll instantly notice the difference thanks to a 4K super sampled image that brings you a crisper, richer looking Gears game than you've ever seen before.

HDR
High Dynamic Range provides increased contrast between lights and darks. Battling your way through a lightning flurry in a windflare has never looked better. Gears of War 4 on Xbox One X supports a wide color gamut for true-to-color definition – just as the artists intended – and now at 4K resolution.

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!

Performance

Put framerate first. For the first time ever on console, 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.

Visuals

Push graphical fidelity to the max. This mode uses Ultra Quality Textures, a wealth of new and improved graphical features all at 4K resolution (3840x2160) 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).

DOLBY ATMOS AUDIO SUPPORT
When playing Gears of War 4 on Xbox One, we now offer Dolby Atmos, which gives you immersive, moving audio.

The Dolby Access app lets you set up your Dolby Atmos enabled home theater, TV, or sound bar for free, and lets you try or buy Dolby Atmos for Headphones, which gives you immersive sound on any headphones. Experience the visceral sounds of Gears of War in a way that will make you feel like you're inside the action, only on Xbox One.

OUR MOST IMMERSIVE WORLD
The world of Sera has never been more immersive thanks to brand new features and higher resolution textures – all possible with the additional horsepower and memory offered by the Xbox One X.

Enhanced Light Shafts
Also known as God Rays, Enhanced Light Shafts provide true-to-life beams of sunlight in the world. Prepare for jaw dropping lighting as the God Rays peek through gaps in the canopy of trees above you, or in sunset conditions peeking through buildings and statues.

Dynamic Shadows
Shadows in Gears of War 4 are usually pre-defined by an artist to accurately reflect the shadows objects in the world would cast based on the lighting. On Xbox One X, dynamic shadows now react true to the lighting conditions and movement of objects – for example, trees blowing in the wind will cast an accurate moving shadow on the ground – bringing the world of Sera to life like never before.

Increased Draw Distances
With the power of Xbox One X, we can maintain higher resolution textures at a further distance than ever before – creating a higher fidelity picture and crisper world around you, even on the horizon.

Superior Reflections
We've pushed our surface space reflections even further to look closer to as you would expect in real life. Reflective surfaces now have a higher definition reflection of your character - whether that's in a mirror-like reflection of water, or the muddied color reflective nature of metal. It looks especially awesome on the DeeBee's metallic armor!

Enhanced Character Textures
With our higher resolution textures now available on console thanks to Xbox One X, characters show more detail from head to toe. They've never looked better!

Experience this all at no extra cost for Gears of War 4 owners when you pick up your Xbox One X. And, if you've picked up the Xbox One X but haven't jumped in to Gears of War 4 yet, you can try it FREE now with our 10-hour trial – the perfect showcase piece for your new super-powered console.

We're incredibly proud of what the team has been able to achieve on Xbox One X so far. We can't wait to see you all experience this feast for your eyeballs!

Looks like a pretty damn good X patch for Gears. Can't wait to do a other play through and jump back into Gears.

I can't wait to land a point blank shot to someone and then get bodied with a blind fire shot, from some dork in a colorblasted JD skin. IN 4K!!

Gears of War 4 is the game that could possibly sell me on Xbox One X (but it won't since I just bought a One S, and the differences between the two are not big enough).

This news is HUGE for me. I was honestly disappointed with what they originally announced for X enhancements, and was hoping that they could/would get horde/campaign running in 60fpsish like pvp. 11/7 can't come soon enough!

This is awesome. Hope it's a sign of more to come with 1080p/60fps settings becoming more prevalent along with the 4K ones.

They could have announced this at E3, I was very disappointed by that time... and now there are more and more announcements about games with unlocked framerates... I just hope the up to 60fps is most of the time...

Good on MS because in their initial messaging last year it sounded like all their exclusives would be 4K and that's it. Options are always good.

Does Gears 4 still have a big community? I was thinking about jumping back in. I spent a very short time with that game as a big Gears fan. Life just kind of got in the way and I never went back. Thinking Halloween might be a good time to get back to it.

My "dream" would be to have the choice of visuals and performance mode for every game on console.

I'd personally always choose the 60fps mode, but at least there would be the option for those that aren't bothered about framerates.

Can't wait to try this on the X, looks like quite a bit of effort went into making this a great update for the X.
