finally beat the campaign , 10/10 this is by far the best most intense campaign in 2019

now the graphics are also on another level for a UE4 game , just pure joy to watch with HDR on

graphics setting that i turn down a little and gain more fps are vol.fog and tessellation , they don't make a difference above HIGH option
I'm still on Act 1 (MP has pulled me in everytime I boot up!) but it's so much fun. Swarm everywhere and it's all kicking off 99% of the time. Absolutely love it!

Oh and the graphics are incredible, definitely the best looking game I've played to date. It's really colourful and for the amount that's happening on screen, I feel like it barely drops a frame. Amazing achievement from The Coalition.

I was never a big carer for 4k & 60fps, but after Gears 5 I want it in every game.

Like Forza Horizon 4 is jaw dropping but I hate choosing between 4k OR 60fps.
But FH4 is consistently a native 4k throughout, whilst Gears 5 offers a constantly changing dynamic resolution coupled with adaptive geometry rendering. In other words, it's not really a like for like on the resolution front.

I guess but with you have to choose between graphics and performance, and with Gears it feels like i'm getting both.

Basically I'm excited for next gen when more games will be native 4k and 60fps... at least from this gen's titles.

I just know that Gears 5 looks insane on my 65" 4K TV where I sit too close, never once thinking it doesn't look native. It is the most graphically impressive game for me this whole gen when I consider how it looks in 60 FPS motion, and I have played God of War and Red Dead Redemption 2 with my setup.

So what? It's imperceptible drops in resolution, at this point in the gen I think we all pretty well accept that dynamic res is a huge plus, and if you have to choose dynamic res that doesn't drop perceptibly versus 'locked' 4k at half the fps...no brainer.
