As announced at the Xbox E3 Media Briefing, Muscian and Law and Order Actor Ice-T had "gotten the band back together" and his infamous 90's-era hardcore/metal outfit Bodycount had laid down a new track for the hugely anticipated Gears of War 3. It was also revealed that Ice-T would be voicing a character named "Griffin" in the game.
Epic have released a new trailer today featuring Bodycount's "The Gears of War" track as well as a bunch of new gameplay action from the game's Horde 2.0 cooperative mode.
After getting the band together for a surprise concert during E3 at the “Gears of War 31” Horde Showcase, fans the world over are now getting their first taste of Ice-T’s lyrical contribution to the final chapter in the “Gears of War1” trilogy based on his experiences as a hardcore “Gears” player himself.
“I've always been a big fan of the game and got to play a lot of the new one during development,” said Ice-T of Body Count. “I play the character Griffin so when I was invited to also record a new track, the lyrics came pretty quick.”
