Gears 5 Xbox Series X vs. PC Comparison Highlights The Major Difference
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)
