Gears of war 3 is coming out in 357 days, april 5th 2011. This is my favorite game EVER and I can't wait to have more details about it.

April 13, 2010 - Gears of War 3 was officially unveiled last night. Fans got their first glimpse at the game in a minute-long trailer, which featured long-standing COG members Marcus Fenix, and his grizzled partner Dominic Santiago fighting a swarm of Locust enemies and new Lambent tentacle monsters.

But new details have emerged this morning, courtesy of Spanish gaming website MeriStation. In an interview, Epic Games design director Cliff Bleszinski confirmed several new additions and details for Gears of War 3.

Bleszinski said the plot of Gears of War 3 picks up 18 months after the end of Gears 2, and will close the book on the trilogy.

"You can expect that we'll answer the majority of the questions that players have about the history of the world and what's going on," Bleszinski said. "We're not going to answer everything, but I can tell you this will be the conclusion to a trilogy."

In the same interview, Bleszinski confirmed two new weapons for Gears 3: A sawed-off double-barrel shotgun, which is more powerful than the standard shotgun, but has longer reload times and less range, and the Pendulum Lancer, the precursor to the chainsaw Lancer. This new lancer "kicks like a mule when it fires" and includes a large blade at the end that makes for nasty executions.

Bleszinski also said the team will continue to refine the cover system of Gears 3, making it the best in the industry. The game will finally include female characters. Anya, who was a "pencil pusher" in the previous Gears games, will now be fighting alongside the Delta Squad in the new game.

The biggest addition to multiplayer is 4-player online co-op in the story mode. Bleszinski said players can now take control of the other Delta Squad members Baird and Cole in the campaign.

"When you play Gears 1 and 2, Player 1 is Marcus, and Player 2 is Dom. The only way to play as Dom in the campaign is to be Player 2," he said. "That cascades down to Players 3 and 4. If you want to play as Baird or Cole in the campaign, the only way you can do that is to play 3 or 4 player co-op."

Bleszinski also noted the team has switched up the storytelling in Gears 3.

"At some point in the campaign, you're not going to be Marcus and Dom. You're going to be another squad, and you're going to experience their section, and you'll see some overlap and they'll merge Pulp Fiction style, which is one of the ways were playing with the stories this time," he said.

There will also be several multiplayer improvements. Bleszinski promised Gears of War 3 will include better region filtering to allow for less laggy games. Fans will also see the return of several old Gears of War multiplayer maps, but he could not say which ones.

Bleszinski also hinted at a possible new squad command system for multiplayer.

"We definitely want to improve the player's ability to play together with their friends and stick together in a party, but we're not announcing how that will work right now."

Eh i always thought Gears was semi crap. It was so heavy and the guns were extremely boring.

Only thing worth playing was the horde mode since it pretty much started the whole horde mode fad for all of the latest games. LEts see if any of that under water battles are any good.

:( I love the campaing and multiplayer, I love everything about that game, the unneccesary violence, the weapons, the ridiculous ammount of ammo required to kill enemies, I got this game under my skin.

Just Here For The Pie

I absolutely hate the Gears of Wars series.

I am not saying that from a point in which I have never played them, oh no. I own both of them, and have beaten them both on their normal and insane difficulties.

I find the storyline to be rubbish, and the game-play to be terrible.
Upon playing the second game, I found JohnnyUtah had summed it up perfectly, if not out of sync.

The online is full of so many bugs that people utilize. It makes me want to tear my hair out every time I play.

Despite all this, I still guarantee I will end up playing the third game.
My nephew is bound to pick it up, and he will want help with co-op.

I just love the cover system, makes it feel so tactical, makes it so much fun with another player. Playing Halo or Modern Warfare 2 with someone else just isn't the same as Gears or Gears of War 2.

Fuuuck yes. Gears of War story was bad-ass. The part where that dude shot himself and how Dom had to euthanize his wife was like the most tear-jerking moments of any game I have ever played.

Multiplayer sucks the dick though. Built for campers and has craptastic reg.

Hoping multiplayer doesn't completely suck ass like it did in gow2.
Hoping horde mode isn't so incredibly weak. I hated how it was the same basic enemies that only increased in number til level 10, then started over with the same enemies, only stronger. I wanted to see some bad ass crap in the horde mode, not just basic locust grunts.
