The developer behind the popular Gears of Wars franchise, The Coalition, will be showcasing a new technical demo dubbed “Alpha Point” that demonstrates how great its future titles built with Epic Games’ next-gen Unreal Engine 5 should look running on Microsoft’s Xbox Series X|S consoles.

The Coalition’s Alpha Point demo will be broadcast as part of GDC 2021 on July 20 at 1:20 PM to 2:20 PM PDT.
