Been a while since I had an online match in Gears 4 and with your recent posts I thought I'd throw it on and have a nice game of KOTH. Instantly forgot I have the sensitivity so damn high to wall bounce from time to time which totally threw me off and hardly any of my Gnasher shots were hitting their target which was pissing me off. Still a Gold 2 in KOTH :datass:

The games made my head feel weird though :slol:

Any reason the game all of a sudden puts you in a match with people outside of Europe so your ping is sky high and you can't do gooseberry fool? 2 games in a row have done this.

i saw a message on the XB1 loadup screen that they have done away with regional servers for matchmaking or something like that anyway. Something to do with it being better the new way. didn't really read it that closely as I don't have Live to play online anyway.

Resumed my campaign over the weekend, some 10 months after I stopped playing this. Managed to finally get through the annoying 'Great Escape' chapter at the end of Act 2. Now on Act 3, ch2. About half way through the game I think.

Definitely isn't better. What exactly is better about being made to play against people with nasty pings in the hundreds. Maybe the games MP is dying out so it's a way to make sure those still playing get games easy enough.

Btw Photek, when playing online it's always against Bone players with the odd other PC player. Had a match earlier and there was a total of 3 PC players in the game and a Bone player complained there was too many PC players :slol:

Yeah but on Xbox version we have ability to not play with PC users.

They have removed the regions but try to only find people on same ping...
Along with the region roll-ups, players will be able to see ping on the scoreboard. The matchmaking system will attempt to put players in a game where they have the best latency, in addition to skill-based matchmaking. The result should be "higher quality matches with the lowest possible latency."

It's due mid-september so could be out now, haven't fired it up in a couple of days. Coupled with that it'll try to match skill, so maybe only NA folk were at your skill level KJ...

Gears of War 4 Xbox One X Enhancements In-Depth

We’re excited to share how Gears of War 4 has been enhanced for the Xbox One X. Our new trailer showcases the wealth of graphical and gameplay enhancements that are only possible with the world’s most powerful console. We’re also excited to finally reveal the Preferred Rendering mode so you can play Gears of War 4 how you want!

True 4K Experience
Get ready to experience unmatched clarity, richness and details with true 4K visuals (3840×2160) in our Visuals Rendering Mode. Even if you’re playing on a 1080p screen, you’ll instantly notice the difference thanks to a 4K super sampled image that brings you a crisper, richer looking Gears game than you’ve ever seen before.

HDR
High Dynamic Range provides increased contrast between lights and darks. Battling your way through a lightning flurry in a windflare has never looked better. Gears of War 4 on Xbox One X supports a wide color gamut for true-to-color definition – just as the artists intended – and now at 4K resolution.

Up to 60FPS For Ultra Smooth Gameplay

We’re excited to announce Xbox One X owners will have two Preferred Rendering Options to choose from in Gears of War 4 – Visuals and Performance!

Performance

Put framerate first. For the first time ever, Gears of War will play at up to 60fps in 1080p in Campaign and Horde – all including higher resolution textures and some of the new enhanced graphical features available in Visuals mode.

Visuals

Push graphical fidelity to the max. This mode uses Ultra Quality Textures, a wealth of new and improved graphical features all at 4K resolution (3840×2160) thanks to the power of Xbox One X. You’ll experience the same frame rates you’ve come to expect from Gears of War 4 – 30fps for Campaign and Horde .

In both Rendering modes, Versus will run at a rock-solid 4K 60FPS (with adaptive resolution scaling).

Dolby Atmos Audio Support

When playing Gears of War 4 on Xbox One, we now offer Dolby Atmos, which gives you immersive, moving audio.

The Dolby Access app lets you set up your Dolby Atmos enabled home theater, TV, or sound bar for free, and lets you try or buy Dolby Atmos for Headphones, which gives you immersive sound on any headphones. Experience the visceral sounds of Gears of War in a way that will make you feel like you’re inside the action, only on Xbox One.

Our Most Immersive World Thanks To New Features

The world of Sera has never been more immersive thanks to brand new features and higher resolution textures – all possible with the additional horsepower and memory offered by the Xbox One X.

Enhanced Light Shafts
Also known as God Rays, Enhanced Light Shafts provide true-to-life beams of sunlight in the world. Prepare for jaw dropping lighting as the God Rays peek through gaps in the canopy of trees above you, or in sunset conditions peeking through buildings and statues.

Dynamic Shadows
Shadows in Gears of War 4 are usually pre-defined by an artist to accurately reflect the shadows objects in the world would cast based on the lighting. On Xbox One X, dynamic shadows now react true to the lighting conditions and movement of objects – for example, trees blowing in the wind will cast an accurate moving shadow on the ground – bringing the world of Sera to life like never before.

Increased Draw Distances
With the power of Xbox One X, we can maintain higher resolution textures at a further distance than ever before – creating a higher fidelity picture and crisper world around you, even on the horizon.

Superior Reflections
We’ve pushed our surface space reflections even further to look closer to as you would expect in real life. Reflective surfaces now have a higher definition reflection of your character – whether that’s in a mirror-like reflection of water, or the muddied color reflective nature of metal. It looks especially awesome on the DeeBee’s metallic armor!

Enhanced Character Textures
With our higher resolution textures now available on console thanks to Xbox One X, characters show more detail from head to toe. They’ve never looked better!

Experience this all at no extra cost for Gears of War 4 owners when you pick up your Xbox One X. And, if you’re picking up the Xbox One X but haven’t jumped in to Gears of War 4 yet, you can try it FREE now with our 10-hour trial – the perfect showcase piece for your new super-powered console.

We’re incredibly proud of what the team has been able to achieve on Xbox One X so far. We can’t wait to see you all experience this feast for your eyeballs!
