E3 2018 Trailer:



Rod Fergusson Talks Gears 5 after E3:


60fps at 4K is their "target"

Our target is always 60fps, and we believe – with everything we’ve done, the learning we’ve taken from Gears 4, and the optimizations we’ve been able to do beyond that – that’s exactly what we’re going to be doing, 60fps at 4K. The new technology of this generation has been fantastic.

I’ve seen all this stuff a bunch of times since E3, but every time I watch I find new details.

Very excited for this one!

I'm still kinda confused as to why I'm so excited for this game compared to the previous ones. 4 was up there but I wouldn't have played it on release if it weren't for my brother.

I think it has to do with the call back to gears of war 2. I maintain that 2 had the best narrative, in plot elements and writing. Now it's coming back to that and it's all much more mysterious than 4 felt, and mystery/suspense is pretty much all it takes to make me interested. In any case, bring on more trailers, gimme the JD drama.
