Studio Head: Gears of War 4 Will Run At 60 FPS

Upcoming Xbox One exclusive Gears of War 4 will run at 60 frames per second says The Coalition studio head, Rod Fergusson.  According to an article in the latest issue of Official Xbox Magazine UK, Fergusson says that the dev team is aiming to duplicate the essence of older Gears titles, which should please long-time fans.

In regards to the framerate here is what he had to say:

“Delivering [with Ultimate Edition] the first 60fps multiplayer experience in franchise history really taught us a lot about what it means to have a 60fps culture on the team and we’re leveraging that experience for Gears of War 4.”

Last year’s Gears of War: Ultimate Edition was the first entry in the franchise to allow players to compete against each other at a full 60 FPS online. Other titles from last year – namely Halo 5 and Forza Motorsport 6 both ran at 60 FPS as well.

The first gameplay footage of Gears of War 4 debuted at E3 2015. You can view it below:
