Gears 5 comes with some enhancements that are not present even on PC including high-quality reflections, which puts it above the PC version at insane settings.
As the preview embargo has been lifted for Gears 5 on Xbox Series X, we are starting to get more videos on the game. We are currently working on a video comparison to highlight the difference between Gears 5 on Xbox Series X and other platforms but in the meanwhile, here is a quick comparison that shows the importance of high-quality reflections and how much it adds to a scene. (Update: Our video comparison can be found here.)
Gears 5 will support advanced features on Xbox Series X. While at first glance, there is not a major difference between the game running on Xbox One X or PC, but reflections are beautifully implemented in the game which is highlighted in some scenes like the opening sequence in Gears 5.
Here is a comparison between the PC version running the game on an RTX 3090 at insane settings with Xbox Series X and Xbox One X version. The source for the PC version is Bang4BuckPC, the Xbox Series X version is from GameKult, while the Xbox One X version is from Lazy4K. (Left is XSX, Middle is X1X, Right is PC)
Here is a closer look at the different versions of animated GIFs. The most obvious difference here is seen in the implementation of reflections on the Xbox Series X compared to the PC version.
As we have shared a comparison earlier, Xbox Series X has some additional graphics features present that are not available on the PC version. It also supports multiplayer at 120 FPS on the Xbox Series X.
The game will run at 4K at 60 FPS on the Xbox Series X compared to the 4K at 30 FPS for the Xbox One X version.
