Microsoft and Epic Games have revealed the official release date for Gears of War 3, pegging September 20th 2011 as the day we'll rejoin Marcus, Dom, Baird and yet another Carmine brother as they continue their Xbox360-exclusive battle against the Locust horde. Here's some bullet points on what to expect in number three:
  • An enthralling cinematic story that captivates players in an intimately intense action game
  • Five-on-five multiplayer experience as well as four player campaign co-op experience
  • New multiplayer game modes including ‘Beast Mode’ – offering a new twist to the game where you take on the role of the locust horde and their assorted variations!
  • New maps including: Trenches which features an impressive sand storm that reduces your visibility, as well as Overpass, Mercy, Checkout, and Thrashball
  • New weapons including: The Bayonet Charge, The Retro Lancer, The Sawed-off Shotgun, The OneShot – a heavy sniper rifle that shoots through shields or cover for a surprise one shot kill, The Incendiary Grenade, The Digger Launcher and a few subtle tweaks to old favourites Hammerburst and The Classic Lancer. Don’t forget that each weapon now has its own execution move!
The release date press release also reminds us to keep our eyes peeled for a public multiplayer beta, coming soon.

With lovely brown and grey graphics. Now with extra coffee filter.

Never got into this game even though I tried both times. Guess it's like 1 of those things like halo where everyone on console thinks it's the shit because they have no real games to play.

I thought the first was great, 2nd not so much
I was a big fan of the whole gothic style levels n such. Oh and the abbatoir/factory lvl. still think it was one of the most atmospheric and creepy scenes I ever played through in a game.

GoW is one of those must have Xbox games, I definately couldn't see it working so well on PC.

Can't wait for this one hopefully has some better gameplay elements gets a bit boring after a while, story line really drives me to finish them.
