A new Gears of War 3 graphics comparison video has been released by a YouTuber by the name of ElAnalistaDeBits, showing off the differences in power between the Xbox 360, the Xbox One, and the newly-released Xbox One X. The differences are subtle, but they’re there and definitely show off the X’s power.
To start off with, we’ll contrast between the Xbox 360 and the regular Xbox One. In addition to better colors and lighting, the Xbox One version has better textures than the original Xbox 360 version, much like how the original Gears of War got a graphical upgrade when it was ported to the Xbox one as the “Ultimate Edition“. The other Gears of War games are available on the backwards compatible listing, and all have received a visual upgrade as well.
But even then, that’s nothing compared to what the Xbox One X version of Gears of War 3 looks. In the Gears of War 3 graphics comparison video, the textures are even more defined on the X. For instance, when you’re on the Sovereign in the beginning of the game, the various bulkheads and other surfaces within the ship are even more detailed.
Much like other graphical upgrades, the differences between the 360, the Xbox One, and the Xbox One X also helps with anti-aliasing in the game, making distant images crisper and less ragged-looking. Effects like smoke are now also much more defined and more visible, especially in a war-torn setting like Gears of War.
With the Xbox One X available to buy now, you can take a look at the Gears of War 3 graphics comparison video by following this link, and check out how the game looks on the Xbox One X. Considering you can likely carry over all of your data onto it, you can re-play Gears of War 3 without having to buy the backwards compatible version again.
